View Full Version : Messiah connections

07 July 2005, 04:54 PM
I just got messiah animate so this'll probably be a bit of a noob question, anyway I'm using 3d max 7, how do I use the connections so that I can take my max scenes into messiah?

Edit: I got the connection working (I think I havent tried doing much with it yet, I'm going to try rigging a character iwth it later today.)

be carefull when using the Max connection.
Save your work often.(incremental scenes)
What I would reccomend, is save your max model as OBJ file, import it to Messiah standalone, rig and animate it, save your file.
Open up Max, start messiah connection, and merge your previously saved standalone project and transfer the data.

If you can afford - buy Mark Wilsons Point Oven pro (, wich will let you simply bake your point cache (MDD format) out of Messiah, and bring it to Max.
Faster, smoother, and doesnt crash that much.
