I have 2.5.2 and its a must have bit of kit. Makes your anims and dynamic sims soo much faster.

Here is a little test I did with the full version using Maya within its pipeline. It also supports Max and nay 3D ap that can import and export in OBJ and fbx files.

Theres a lot of work to do with the way the rig works and the weights on the geo. But a i said its a test to ensure I can import and export correctly.

About 1.4Mb(ish)

The entire process, using one of the default fbx animation files provided with the app (walk.fbx), then a stumble and attempt to pull hands to face (not quite right tbh), took about 15 mins including the playblast.

This is a great app please try it out.
