REALVIZ Apps to Support Kaydara FBX Format

(August 07, 2001)
Kaydara Inc. and REALVIZ, of Sophia Antipolis, France, today announced their support for Kaydara's FBX format in forthcoming versions of REALVIZ' award-winning MatchMover and ImageModeler applications. REALVIZ' support for FBX will provide FiLMBOX users with efficient access to 3D camera data and image-based models. Designed to provide an authoring hub between major 3D packages, FBX provides a centralized working file format for animators wishing to acquire, author, and retarget 3D model and animation data. The FBX format supports data structures from Alias Maya, NewTek Lightwave, Discreet 3D Studio Max, and Softimage|3D.

Animators using REALVIZ MatchMover with FiLMBOX will find the tools form a complementary pathway for the seamless integration of 3D elements into tracked video content. MatchMover's support for FBX will mean that camera-tracking data can easily be imported directly into FiLMBOX, allowing users to combine tracked 3D camera data and real-time 3D content with video. Also, 3D scene content will subsequently be easily exported from REALVIZ' ImageModeler package, giving FiLMBOX users access to photo-real image-based 3D models.

FBX also provides FiLMBOX users with the ability to re-purpose content for film, TV, games and the Web. This means they can produce more content in less time, reducing production costs while improving the quality of their content. Leading 3D content companies, including Motek, Turbosquid, and Zygote, have announced their support of the format.
