.fbx to the rescue

So after looking for the better part of this morning for a viewer that allow people with out Maya to view 3D files, I found a solution. More accurately we (my boss and I) found a solution. Maya/Alias recently purchased a company called Kaydera known for amongst other things developing the .fbx format. This format allows you to bring files back and forth between all major modeling programs. They also developed an .fbx viewer plug-in for Quicktime and it works awesome. You can completely navigate your 3D file with zoom, pan and orbit features. You can even turn on and off wire-frame modes and jump from camera to camera. This will revolutionize the way I do my job. It's pretty dam cool.
