I've just read about the new version of Softimage (2011) that debuted at GDC - http://area.autodesk.com/softimage2011/features
- and it looks like there will be easier integration of 3rd Party renderers, both for the rendering and the materials. I'm not sure when the release date is but I just wondered, if I upgraded to the new version of Soft', would the existing plugins still work or are new ones in the pipeline?
P.S. whilst I'm here, I'm working on a new project and was going to animate the Physical Sky parameters of Maxwell via the current Softimage plugin but they're not animate-able. If you are, indeed, working on a new plugin could these be made available as well, please.
P.P.S. another animation problem I have is with changing camera apertures. Whenever I do an animation and change the camera aperture over the length of the animation it never seems to work; the aperture value remains the same as the first frame throughout. Is there a solution to fix this?
