announced Tuesday that its FBX authoring file format is now supported by
Maya software, thanks to the release of a new plug-in available for download from both Kaydara’s and Alias’ Web sites.
FBX is a 3D authoring and interchange format that supports 3D data including models, motion capture data and characters; 2D; audio and video media elements. It’s multiplatform compatible. With the plug-in installed, Maya users can access existing FBX content and can also export their files to the FBX format.
The FBX-XSI plug-in is free. More information about the FBX format is available for review from
Kaydara’s Web site.
