View Full Version : Edit FX

Does anyone know whether Softimage or Maya have features (tools) similar to 8.0's Edit FX and Soft FX?

I have seen this feature in Max 6.0 with their particle system.

Yup they all already have those features, for quite some time too...it was LW that has been lacking in most tools...don't get me wrong, it does most things out of the box, but whenever you want to do some little more advanced stuff your screwed.

(i.e. try to align a particle's Heading while trying to rotate it's Pitch by script/expression and have it still move over it's own motion path so your HVs will align properly in the directions you want them to point....Maya let's me do this...no problemmo..just 1 line of simple script code into you scene and viola done...)

But maybe 8.0 will have fixed all of this...offcourse will have...right Newtek?...right?...please right?...
