    Actually, scratch that. I set up a simpler test case and it worked ok. It just turns out it's taking a very very long time. Took well over an hour to import a scene geometry fbx file. Maybe it's doing something complex like generating shadow UVs. It has got past it and onto audio files now though. I should point out that CPU usage was barely registering, which is why i thought it had frozen.

    I still get this issue with multiple FBX files exported from 3DS Max 2013 (using FBX exporter binary 2012 & 2013) in Unity versions 2019.1.0f1 and 2019.2.0a11. I can't load my projects in these versions.
