Maya plug-in code license


I wondered if Alias could clarify the status of the source code for the Maya plug-in.

All the files have a big “Copyright © Alias Systems” banner at the top.

However I’d like to be able to freely use this code as the basis of other development - I find the code style closer to my own than that of the official Collada sample code, so it would be easier to proceed from the Alias source.


Hi Andrew,

The copyright we use is the same one that is used for sample plugins in Maya’s devkit. We are considering a modified version of that header for the COLLADA importer/exporter plugin that more clearly accommodates people wanting to reuse and modify Alias’ code for their internal use.
