Hey Folks,

Version 2.4 of our MotionBuilder Plugin is now available for download.

There are a lot of great changes in this release, including MotionBuilder 2012 support, lots of enhancements to the Insight Virtual Camera System device, and some important updates to the Optical Device.

Please give it a try and let us know what you think!

transport control (e.g. 1/2x, 1/4x, etc.).

to offset to, instead of just the origin (defaults to (0,0,0)).

Added : Reset Zoom action now takes a parameter that specifies the focal length to reset to (e.g. 50.0)
