Thanks for nice free tool.
I've tried it, but IMO it doesn't export mesh correctly. It remove some concave mesh.

Is this just baking the animation down onto the verts or does it bring through things like set driven keys/expressions I wonder...

AFAIK this is a mesh cache system, the good thing is that you can export things like variable topology meshes, like fluid meshes, i'm not sure if it supports particle caching too.

@sandykoufax: is your model made of nurbs or is it a poly mesh (in maya I mean)?

Cheers.

Hi, I have no Maya, so I export my mesh and re-imported it into Max.
Anyway,my model is poly mesh converted from nurbs via FBX.(nurbs->FBX->Max)
