Maya Cache DLL Project
Maya Cache DLL Project is a research initiative by 100cells (Costanzo D'Angelis, Stefano Cieri).
Maya Cache DLL Project is an open source C library aimed to write Maya nCache for nParticles. This implementation is merely resulting out of observations (and deductions) of .mc binary files and Python scripts provided by Autodesk.
####Maya Caches, nCaches and nParticles The Maya Cache file format (.mc) is used in Maya for a variety of caching purposes; nCaches are a sub-class of Maya Caches, which store simulation data for nucleus objects or fluid effects; nParticles are a specific kind of nucleus objects. Presently, the library only deals with the file structure of nCaches for nParticles.
Most likely, this will be the first step of a wider research, aimed to generalize the format description (so that it might include every kind of Maya Cache).
