Hello,

I build and sell a motion control system. I have some requests from customers to import move data from my system into LightWave, both as files and real-time data streams.

I donít have a copy of LightWave, where can I find information to construct the proper file format and data stream protocols for input to LightWave?

Thanks for your help!

You can download the trial version which includes the SDK.

However, i believe most mocap data is brought into LightWave in .fbx format.

There is no data stream protocol. The file format specs are in the SDK.

I've hooked up LW to both a cooper controls driven rig as well as a custom motion control solution (both LW driven using plugins). If you're interested in more information or pointers, feel free to mail me: michael(dot)wolf(at)db-w(dot)com.

Cheers,
Mike

Wow
Are you the Jeff Platt that wrote the software engine for the Alesis Andromeda ?
I know he built motion control systems too

Yes, actually I am. The Andromeda was just a fun, wonderful project to work on. I started a new company a few years after the A6, and I'm just as proud of it:
