Jordi, The "justification" part seems to be the problem over here. It's achicken-and-egg thing because how can we justify it if we don't use it on a project but how can we use it on a project if we can't justify it?
And while SESI is at it, how about Maya Ascii support? That way, we couldall have the goodness from Houdini<->Maya<->XSI<->Houdini.
Even better: how about an independent common open-source file format thatacts like a hub between the Trio? ( <- this whishfull thinking was directed to no-one in particular in the hope that someone with a lot of spare unpaid time starts digging in <sigh>)
PeterI thought that was what .rib was supposed to be....like postscript for 3d, everyone can read and write a common format. have you looked at Kaydara's fbx format....I don't think there is a Houdini plugin (?)...but if the format catches on it could happen...
