you may have launched your website prematurely... though, I think it would be wise to expand your product's compatibility with more 3d software packages.

Hmmmmm ... Yep, I think perhaps I have launched things a bit too prematurely, but I wanted to go 'live' when the hype from LOTR3 was at it's highest. My bad!!

With screenshots, I have nothing to give really. I have a few shots of actor interaction on a 2d level, and a shot of my navmesh generator that takes a 3d environment and works out what surfaces are walkable, but nothing major. Hopefully this will change VERY soon!!

As for compatability with other packages, I chose C4D for the huge user base of pro-sumers, plus the cheap cost of plugin dev. Yes, Maya/3ds Max would be larger packages to support, but at $2k each just to check out if an idea works? Expensive mistake!! So, I will hopefully release for C4D, then if it goes well, I'll definately release for other packages or make a standalone version with good file support.

Any suggestions??
