Hi everyone,

Just subscribe to this mailing list today, asking for an advice.
I have read the good documentation and tutorials over at

Before I jumped into cgkit much further, I would like to know whether its possible
to use cgkit module as a maya file viewer.

From the documentation we know we can import maya ascii file (with limitations), also from the documentation we know we can draw very easily in OpenGL.

So, is it possible to read a maya ascii file, parse it into a format that viewer.py can understand (require coding obviously)
, and display it roughly using viewer.py
Another catch is the maya ascii file here reads of maya cache files (.mc) to get data in.

(Maybe I should write maya cache viewer instead.. ?)

Thanks in advance
