While on Siggraph, I met with  
someone-we-know-who's-working-on-a-spider-movie. Whilst he would love  
to still use Blender, the entire studio now switched to LW & XSI &  
The subtle hint I got was to check on the conversion utility "Point  
Oven", apparently very popular in the LW community, and which they use  
there a lot to migrate data around. The format is a commercial plugin  
that supports all major 3d apps, and actually just bakes, per frame,  
the entire animated geometry of models.

You can download the docs & specs for it here;


I've emailed the company owner, and he confirmed the format is free for  
us to use.

The specs are totally simple. But it would require someone with access  
to LW and this plugin to verify validity. Is there someone on this list  
who is interested to code this and arrange testing?
