View Full Version : Kaydara PE License notice

02 February 2003, 10:53 PM
Not sure if folsk check out the Kaydara forum with any regularlity - but The president of the company just posted what their plans are for PE licenses when they expire...

Basically, if you order between August and December of this year for an additional $100 ($200 total including initial purchase) you will have a permanent full license to Kaydara Motion Builder.

Get 'em while their hot kids!

are there any limitations what MOTIONBUILDER wil import/export from Lightwave and Maya? as I am loocking for a tool to get maya animations back into Lightwave for rendering and dont want to loose all cool skining and deformations you can do with maya ( softbody) dynamics and so on) ?

Why not just render in Maya? If you got Maya 5.5 the renders look great (Mental Ray rendering).

1. Maya is only at 5.0
2. I still use 4.5
3. Mayas DOF is lousy compared to X-DOF for LW
4. Mayas Renderer is dead slow, and even if MR might be faster ( never tried it ) it has only one license whereas LW comes with unlimited rendernodes.
5. I just happen to like the LW renderer.

Yeah a little 5.5 typo :rolleyes:
6.Maya has really bad anti-aliasing :)

Back to the subject, yep, definetly looking into MB. Just have to find the "upgrade MB" link. ;)
