Crestline Software is in the process of producing some dinos for 3D
Studio and I think Light Wave. The Illustration I saw was of a
theropod (Allosaurus?) and a Sauropod of some type. I talked with the
owner and he said they were close to being released. He said they
included inverse kinematics. Perhaps Betty can shed more light here.

I agree with Betty. If you did not get my off list e-mail, check out the 
variety of T.rex interpretations at my Dinosaur Art home page: 
     There are about a dozen pieces from idiotic on up on display. And of 
course, that only scratches the surface.  Get a Saurian Studios catalogue or 
talk to the folks at Dinosaur Studio. There are  a number of sources at my 
web site,  if you want more.  There are a lot of was to skin that cat.
