Virtools File Exporter Available for Maya

New plugin provides transition from Maya to Virtools interactive 3D development software By DMN Staff Writer
The Virtools file exporter is available as a free download for Maya, allowing users to export 3D models, lights, cameras, materials, textures and animations into Virtools Dev 2.0. Also supported are Maya' s bones, skin, and vertex colors features.

Using Maya's 3D modeling and animation software with Virtools Dev 2.0's behavioral features makes it easier to create lifelike interactivity with 3D content. This is done by dragging and dropping interactive behaviors from the Virtools behavior library (more than 400 building blocks) onto exported 3D objects.


Creating interactive applications with Virtools Dev 2.0 is done by graphically assembling "behaviors" in Dev 2.0's intuitive interface. Users can access the "behavior library" or program their own behaviors in C++ with Virtools' Software Development Kit (SDK).

The Virtools Exporter for Maya 3 and Maya 4 is available free from the Virtools website: www.virtools.com
