3DXchange 5 – FBX export

News of the forthcoming new 3DXchange 5…

“There will be 3 versions of 3DXchange5 available. Standard, Pro and Pipeline. The Pipeline version of 3DXchange5 will allow export in FBX and BVH formats.”

So presumably the Pipeline version will be suitable for commercial studios that want to take their iClone characters and animations out to old-school 3D software, such as 3DS Max or Lightwave. What will be very interesting will be to see if “whole scene” bundles (projects) can be exported out this way, without having to do fiddly re-attachment of the animations afterwards, etc. You’d still only be rendering the content, so the licencing of Reallusion content doesn’t seem likely to have to be affected by this move.
