IK Handles and LookAt Constraints from Max

I'm trying to control an excavator that I have brought into Vizard from 3DS Max.

ex. http://img.diytrade.com/cdimg/510999...or_SC220_7.jpg

The boom is controlled by an IK handle, and the pistons are controlled by LookAt Constraints.

I can see the node within the excavator's IVE file for the IK handle, but when I move it, the boom does not move.

Do I need to do something special to export these constraints from Max, or does Vizard just not support them?

Thanks,
MJ

Vizard will not make these calculations. You can manually place or animate sub-parts of the model but you'll need to specify where they go.
