That would be great - I would love to see how the poses are handled. A biped
format that could be applied to any rigged character could be fun to program. :)
just a thought...I have Max and tons of .bip files. I should be able to write
the rotation keys out as a frame sequence - one .inc file per frame? A 4 second
animation would be 120 include files. :(

That seems to work best for linked forward rotations...unless there's
a way to handle quaternions in POV. I need to go back and add 3 independent
rotations per joint. I got lazy.
