Autodesk Maya 2020.2
UV Editing: Unfold3D Process Error:
- Many users on systems with newer, high-end CPUs like Ryzen 3900x series have reported issues and 'Unfold3D Process Error' messages when unwrapping or optimizing UVs. If you run Maya using one of these high performance CPUs, you can now set the environment variable MAYA_USE_ALTERNATE_UNFOLD_SHIM = 1 to use the Unfold3D tools. MAYA-103824

Output from mayapy routed incorrectly:
- Output from mayapy was being routed through stderr rather than being split between stdout & stderr. Two new environment variables, MAYA_BATCH_STDOUT_LOGGING_LEVEL and MAYA_BATCH_STDERR_LOGGING_LEVEL, have been added to control what is output to stderr and stdout by scripts, commands, and API calls. Valid values for both variables are all, info, result, warning, error, and none. MAYA_BATCH_STDOUT_LOGGING_LEVEL defaults to none. MAYA_BATCH_STDERR_LOGGING_LEVEL defaults to all. When neither environment variable is set, all output goes to stderr. MAYA-104079
