I'm attempting two things with little success, and am hoping you can shed some light on these.
First of all I'm working on an asset in the "model" task (assigned to me in shotgun). From Shotgun I've launched Maya2014 and used the <Shotgun> menu to publish my work. I'm noticing that when I navigate to the task within Shotgun, I see the publish that's been created for the Model task but in the VERSIONS tab it says "No versions match your search." I'm not Filtering my results. It appears that the publishing function did not create a Version. Is this the expected behaviour?
Moving forward, I've attempted to load what I've deemed the "approved model" into Maya so that I can start rigging it. So I've launched Maya from Shotgun again, and I'm presented with the Shotgun File Manager:
Project : project_test
The Available Work Files column is 'empty' because I haven't published or saved a workfile for the Rig task yet. So, what is the best way to propagate the published model file into next production Task (Rig, in this case)?
