Getting Complex Character Rigs in Vizard

Hi Everyone,

I'm currently looking into getting some characters I create
in either Maya 8 or Max 8 into vizard.
I've got some bones set up in each example as well as animations
for a walk, idle, left, right cycle as well.

Is there any documentation on getting these into Vizard in a way
that doesn't involve exporting as an IVE with a set constantly
repeating motion path?

I took a peak at ya all's duck demo and I noticed you use a
file format called .cfg with animation files being .caf and meshs
being .cmf.

Is there an export for this? Or is this something you all have a monopoly
on with your peoplemaker pack? Is it some customized code for Max's
character program?

I personally would just like a clearer picture of how to get more complex
models into vizard in the most efficient way possible. I noticed very little
documentation on this in both the manual and online.

Thanks,

George Lecakes

As you noticed, Vizard supports avatars in the .cfg (Cal3D) format. Information on exporting this from 3DsMax:
