I have a quesion about an animation I did in maya, I wasn't too happy with the terrain renders and I would like to redo the animation using Vue Infinite.
Also will Vue 6 have particle effects for me to use for the train smoke? I know there is wind that I can use for the sign swinging.
The main stickler right now is I don't have Xstream to bring in the terrain from Vue.
So my question is, if I recreated the animation in Maya, is it possible to script the rotation of the wheels while I am moving the train on a given axis - for example I was able to use an expression in Maya, that made the wheels rotate when I dragged the train along the X axis - the faster the train moved the faster the wheels rotated.
Here is the animation and the the expression I used.

Here is the MEL script/ Expression
float $fFreq= frame;
