A heads up for anyone having the same issue... Using the export to FBX functionality I'm getting a pop up that appears saying 'FBX Export Failed'. The fail message with no real explanation could do with being updated with meaningful user feedback as I'm pretty sure that the export process is failing because of the length of the file path.

I'm working in this folder:
and the file name is Teen_Afro_Girl_2__009b_GameReady_SingleTexture_uniformed.Fbx
which then tries to generate all the necessary texture files, one of the longer ones being, for example:

working folder: D:\__REALLUSION\_PROJECTS\TEENS\_GIRLS\Teen-Afro_Girl_1\_EXPORTS\_v2b _smiling\
file name: Teen_Afro_Girl_2__009_GameReady_SingleTexture_uniformed.Fbx
which creates a path as long as:
So now I'm exporting to C:/temp/ and all's working fine.
