Should have done this a while ago, but unfortunately I probably won't be able to continue with this project in the foreseeable future. Its not because of technical limitations or lack of experience [mostly], but simply because at this time I just can't afford subscribing to both Ziva FX and Maya, especially with no guarantee that I could accomplish what I want to achieve in an expedient manner. Don't get me wrong, I look at what can be done with Ziva FX, which is amazing, and wish I could have the chance to use it, but at the moment I don't have any experience in animation or programing, so I imagine that ultimately Ziva would be wasted on me.
That said, I'm not giving up on either this character concept or utilizing Ziva FX, I just have to rethink my plans. I do intend to utilize Ziva one day, once I've been able to secure financing and support for a more large scale projects, but to do that I need to create something to demonstrate the future potential of said projects. Right now I'm planning to commit to developing a virtual reality experience with Unreal Engine 4 and Oculus Rift, which the Siren character will be the main attraction.
Before I go, I did have a couple quick questions for the developers of Ziva FX; firstly, is it possible to use Ziva FX with Maya LT? And is there any future plans to try and adapt Ziva FX to work with Blender?
