I wouldn't think so - alas, the link i wanted to add (something in the 
irtc anim rules i vaguely recall) seems to have gone missing from the 
IRTC homepage.

The following comment may be considered juvenile and/or offensive: "Envy" ;)

Maybe there is a way to use Blender or some other free modeller? My most 
recent run-in with Poser (yes, from that free giveaway thing) left me a 
bit unimpressed (the last Poser version i had was, i think, 2 or 
something, when it was still with MetaCreations(?) - back in the 20th 
century ;)
I've only recently (like, three days ago) made my first POV scene, and 
already my admiration for anyone that can do an animation with a text 
editor alone has jumped by a few orders of magnitude :)
