Expression and Face Robot

Post by fxrtst » Sun Oct 26, 2008 10:23 pm

I own Arena and stopped by the booth at Siggraph to see the set up for Expression. I was excited to see the product in use and support for a few packages. Face robot is amazing by Softimage, but the enormious price tag keeps it out the hobbiests garage. I now hear that Alias (Maya, 3d Studio Max, Motionbuilder) have purchased Softimages XSI. Does this include Face Robot to? Are you still developing that plug? Could Alias merge Face Robot into Motion builder or Maya? (Dreaming?)

We don't yet know what the Autodesk acquisition will mean for the Face Robot product, but our roadmap still includes support for releasing the plugin.

If you look on the pdf files of the aquisition, it says it will remain a stand alone product.
