Potentially. Or it means that FPrime has access to the depth info generated by volumetrics.

Just got back from NAB..I live in Vegas. After talking to the very nice guy manning the 1 and only Lightwave workstation (Tricaster dominated NT efforts at NAB)...
I get the feeling FPRIME intergration is still in the works. It was mentioned that Worley was focusing on SASQUATCH at the moment....which suggests that SDK efforts allowing FPRIME intergration are still in NT court.
