Alllllrrrright! MotionBuilder is on OSX!!! MotionBuilder is one of the most awesome character animation apps I've ever seen. Check it out here.
I'm soooo happy. It even intergrates with LW. Poser 5 isn't on OSX yet, so here I come motionbuilder.
MotionBuilder's used by companies like Capcom and WETA (Weta did the CG work in LOTR with Shake and Maya)

I GUESS NO ONE CARES AND WANTS TO WASTE HOURS MAKING AMATUERISH CHARACTER ANIMATIONS. Either that, or no one's making 3D games. MotionBuilder's helping me do the awesome plasmablade fighting moves in my game AJ Infinity and also it's helping do some other character motions. Anyway, MotionBuilder saves alot of time and has an interface like LW and 3ds Max so it's "easy" for me to use.
You can get the personal edition for only $99. The full edition's expensive.

I'm not an artist either. (well, not really) I do animations for CG movies and FBX and MOT motions for my 3D game AJ Infinity. When you see this game, you'll understand why I was so happy to have motion builder (imagine: 300+ different animations for one character; motionbuilder helps out alot).
Alot of LightWave 3D animators use apps like Poser, MotionBuilder, and project: messiah in conjunction with LW.

Where's the demo? No way I'm buying a program I've never heard of before I try it out.

So whats great about MotionBuilder compared to other animation software?
When I create an animation in MB what various formats will it export it in that I can then read in from my own software?

First off, get MB only if your willing to spend about $1,000 on a top notch, realistic animation system that will make things like running motions and motion capture easier. AFAIK, there's no demo. I haven't bought it yet and the $100 Personal Edition is Windows only. Poser 5 is Windows only so we have no choice but to use what we've got (pure Cinema, pure Maya, pure LW, etc)
It exports motions in the FBX file format. MB isn't here to replace your current 3D app but to make it more powerful.
