Alias Supports Kaydara FBX FormatFree Maya plugin available now
The Kaydara FBX-Maya plugin is designed to provide a pathway for the acquisition and exchange of 3D data. FBX is a binary file format that supports all the major 3D data, as well as 2D, audio and video. It operates as a generic wrapper, packaging 3D data into a single file that can then be opened and read by most major 3D applications, either natively or through plugins. It can transfer all major NURBS and polygon surface types; key frame and mocap animation; shapes and morph targets; materials and textures; lights; cameras; and hierarchical information. It also supports a variety of character data, including IK, envelopes and deformations, as well as motion data. And it provides security for files through password protection.
The new Kaydara FBX-Maya plugin is available as a free download from Kaydara and Alias and will be included on future Maya CDs. For more information or to download the software, visit http://www.kaydara.com/products/fbx/index.php.
