What is Bridge?

Asymmetric Bridge is fast and reliable way to transfer model and animation data between 3d applications. It is designed for vfx production companies with more than one 3d package in their pipeline.

Asymmetric Bridge is able to seamless transfer polygon meshes, UV coordinates, and animation between software packages much faster than standard ways.

o Autodesk Maya

Always nice to have a new solution, but...

...why would a company purchase this for integration into their pipeline? By doing so, they're going to be totally reliant on new updates being delivered promptly and working properly each time the 3D apps are updated. Houdini docs specify that the HDK requires a rebuild of any plugins for each new build (although not always strictly necessary). Jees, what with the frequent builds from SideFX, Asymmetic are gonna have their work cut out!

The only way this could ever work is if the plugins link to a core library that deals with storing and interpreting the data, while the 3D app plugins themselves are open source.

Personally, I like how they're being honest and telling everyone up front that it's an *asymmetric* bridge. :)
