all or most i know can rig a model its all just a means of exporting it to a valid file type that carcass takes which is .xsi. 3ds max, gmax, XSI, XSI|mod tool, maya, maya PLE, ms3d and blender can all envelpe meshes but only 3ds max, softimage|XSI and Maya can export a valid .xsi file for carcass to compile into a .glm.

all the free versions i mentioned above can rig meshes to objects like bones, nulls or other meshes, they just cant make a file compatible with carcass.

mod tool CANNOT export a valid .xsi file, they capped the exporter becuase of how valuable the .xsi format is since it can be integrated into almost any game engine, if they were to use softimage theyd need foundations which is $495.

well i havnt tested it for player models but i remember a while back when i tried using it for an animated vehicle it didnt work, it said that the animations werent there, but it might work for playermodels since there are no animations.
