Exporting animation from Maya to pod


#1

Hi,

I am using Maya and have a problem when I export my bone animation to POD
 I

would like to have an option of choosing different frames, like 3.36,

but I can only choose frames using integer numbers like 3, 2, 1.


Even dough the animation is running using two numbers after the decimal point.
Is it possible to export the animation so that I can access the different frames using the decimal point?

Thank you!

Hi,

 

I'm afraid it is not possible to export directly non-integer numbered frames using the POD exporter. However, if you aren't exporting using matrices you can quite happily pass 3.36 to SetFrame in your application and the transformations will be appropriately interpolated to give you a frame 3.36, assuming frames 3 and 4 exist.

 

Thanks,
