Export inventor animation to FBX

Status: New Idea

It would be a great added workflow to be able to export all animations (a presentation file, an inventor studio animation, a dynamic simulation) to an FBX format. 


The FBX you then could use in Showcase or Max to focus on the added value of those software packages instead of recreating those animations (try to recreate a dynamic simulation in Max, it'll never be as good as you can in Inventor). So adding an environment, adding materials like sand or water and other effects like the sparks of welding.


An example would be this dynamic simulation -  Inventor studio rendering:

I noticed that the link sometimes is not working, so I posted it below:

It would indeed be a great feature.


I know Showcase could accept Inventor constraint drivers and use it as a behaviour/animation so it is not an impossible feature to deliver.


All it would need is for Inventor to enable animation baking and export this as an FBX.


This would need to work in 3dsMax, Maya, VRED and possibly Showcase.
