Looks very cool.
Is this a plugin for Max only or can it only export to 3ds Max only?

I thought he was trying to say it was from that Japanese company that made automatron. It was free for LWers for a long time. Don't know if it still is.

No they are different devs. The max automatRon plugin is is very old and not sure its being developed. Everything it does can be done by characterstudio and more.:D

The automaton dev is still active and actually made a cool lw retargetting plugin.
