Here's a video of Fabric Engine working inside of Maya (as a plugin I assume) doing muscle simulation. Wonder if this type of thing could be done in LW?

I see the LightWave cow.

not to be nationalistic...
but as a canadian...i can say proudly a lot of great 3d software originates out of canada...this is another good example

motionbulder, maya, max, softimage, houdini, combustion,inferno,flame, fusion(aussie in the very early days)

the big ones missing from this list are Lightwave, and c4d,...and a majority of the rendering tech is US or other...

sorry major tangent...we only have 1 gold in the olympics so I had to say something:D

now back more on topic..

I like the idea of implementing some of this 3rd party tech to get features developed faster...
MODO just did it using the Ikinema solvers for there character stuff.

If newtek wants some high level deformers (and high performance) they are right here for the taking....that is if it makes financial sense.

Not Canadian (but lived in Brampton as a child and visit Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal at least once a year for business), I was thinking the same thing. Didn't realize some of the apps you listed had Canadian origins.

ya not sure why that is....I mean the US is totally capable in this regard...but for some reason 3d and Canada went hand in hand...another example would be ATI.....the only one out there who could go toe to toe with a silicon valley giant like Nvidia.....

the bad thing about canadian business and innovation is..... with very few exceptions.... we sell off to US companies as soon as the venture starts going successful....
