would love to see all quad caps as a option for creating cylinders, and also ngon caps, also ontop of this i would be nice to see the same options for the "Cap Hole" command, so you could use it's to cap with a ngon how it does, now, cap with segments like it does now, and cap with segments all quads.

simply a cap for a cylinder that is made out of all quads, and no triangles.

and also being have to create a cylinder with a ngon for the top and bottom would be nice too instead of having to delete the top and bottom tris, and fill it again.

in max and modo you can create it with just a ngon, or with normal triangle caps, or a quad cap with that plugin i linked.

That would be brilliant.  If it's at all possible, I'd love to see quad caps for anything that has a circular cap.

This guy makes a lot of nice plugins.
I see few already made it into Wworld.
+1 for quad cap, afetr everything else is in place.
I'd still like to have performance with subD surfaces, over new tools.

agreed, performance is hte biggest issue atm, and better integration with 3d packages would be nice too, finding useing hte obj foramt to move stuff between maya and VW limiting since it loses the hierarchy and pivits.

Maybe even alembic format, in the future? :)

hmm never used or head of that one i was thinking FBX, or maybe evne plugins for maya and max to let them read void-worlds VWS files.


thinking it would be really cool if i could just select a object in maya, and with 1 button have it sent over to voidworld for editing, than with a other command send back to replace the original object in maya.

think that would be a pretty sweet thing for workflow.

I would suggest looking into Crosswalk.  Since Autodesk now owns Max, Maya and Softimage, it's supposed to make it the perfect way to exchange assets between the apps.  Plus it's free:

http://softimage.wiki.softimage.com/xwalkdocs/hh_start.htm

There's an SDK listed there.

As far as Alembic, I know Helge Mathee is developing it for Softimage:  http://vimeo.com/32136520

+1 for quad caps, and another +1 for easier import/export with other apps.
