MDD Exporter Plugin / Script

Hi,

I'm searching for a script or plugin that exports animation data into the *.mdd file format. Currently we are using this script over here: http://www.creativecrash.com/maya/s...dd-obj-exporter

The target application is Cinema 4D and not Houdini and it's possible to import the animations into C4D but there's one problem: The Z-Axis gets flipped (obviously the axis system in Houdini differs from the Axis system in C4D) Unfortunately there's no option in the script to flip a selected axis.

So do you know any other MDD exporter scripts for Maya that could help to solve this issue?

Thanks,
Daniel

Can't offer a solution for MDD, but what about other options? If using C4D R14 and Maya 2013 or newer then Alembic works pretty well. There's also the option of FBX vertex caches if not, quick tutorial on my site here (first one on this page).

I'm not sure what Houdini has to do with this? You're trying to export from Maya to C4D?
