Expert Challenge - Mobu Send to Softimage?

I saw this on the Maya panel discussion and then again echoed in the Mobu discussion.


The Question:

Is there a workflow between Softimage and MotionBuilder?

Joel more or less verbatim : "Yeah you can send stuff back and forth. Fbx is there, single click is there..."

Excuse me?

I want what you guys are smoking.


Not in my version of the suite.

The attached file is what I get by importing an FBX file from Mobu directly into XSI.

It does however work if I bake it to the Skeleton and send it to Maya first and then send to XSI. And in the other direction too, you can go through Maya but XSI rigs (constraints) are not supported in Maya so it is very limited in that direction.

Maya ent. suite 2013.5 here.

Anyone else?
