Alias Wavefront is developing the Maya Real-Time Author plugin to be used in conjunction with Macromedia Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio software to create interactive 3D web content for the Macromedia Shockwave Player.
Maya RTA allows artists working within the Maya user interface to create sensors, actions and interactive viewers. Maya RTA’s sensors, actions and viewers are new elements within a Maya 3D scene created within the product’s Interaction Editor. The Maya RTA toolset and workflow is also fully integrated with the Maya Shockwave 3D Exporter, the high-speed Maya scene optimizer and export solution, which enables the rapid refinement of Maya models and animation for Macromedia Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio.
Maya Real Time Author plugin is priced at $995.
