Viewpoint to Support Kaydara FBX FormatVisit Kaydara at SIGGRAPH Booth #1159 (August 13, 2001)
Viewpoint's support of the FBX format is a key step in Kaydara's long-term strategy to bring 3D content and authoring tools to prosumers. FBX, a powerful 3D file format, provides FiLMBOX users with a hub for exchanging and re-targeting 3D data. This is very useful for content creators who seek to author and repurpose 3D content for projects in the film, television, game development, and Web industries.
"The FBX format provides a solid source of content for 3D professionals," said John Thomas, vice president of sales and support for Viewpoint. "Providing native FBX support for our datasets will benefit FiLMBOX users by offering an optimized pipeline for interactive media development for episodic, film, and games visualization."
"Viewpoint is an industry-leading supplier of 3D content libraries," said Michel Besner, president of Kaydara. "We look forward to working closely with Viewpoint to help continue to develop the content market for the prosumer space, as well as provide models, motion data, and characters 'on-demand' for our existing high-end users."
Kaydara will showcase its FBX file format during SIGGRAPH 2001, booth number 1159.
