LambSoft, Inc., creator of ProMotion and MoveTools, recently formed a partnership with Softimage that will put a MoveTools CD in the Softimage upgrade packages that are currently being sent out to users.
MoveTools is a bi-directional 3D animation conversion system. MoveTools converts animation scenes using a platform independent hub and spoke approach. Each MoveTools "spoke" consists of two plugins that allow you to transfer scenes in and out of one package (one plugin for import, one plugin for export). The "hub" is a MoveTools scene file that contains information about the scene, such as object names and attributes, animation data, cameras, lights and geometry.
MoveTools allows the movement of data across platforms and software packages such as 3D Studio MAX, Maya, Softimage & Lightwave.
