View Full Version : 3DS objects into LW

08 August 2005, 02:55 PM
Hi all,

Does anyone know of a plugin to import 3DS models in LW? (.max files) If so, where can I get it from?

Thanks :)

LW imports natively .3DS. Do load file and it opens (with a small popup dialog to rotate / scale the object).

Its the .max files that I'm having the problem with...any ideas?

.max won't work. proprietary to discreet/autodesk. you'll have to somehow convert to .3ds.

OK....Thanks :)

You might wanna try .OBJ instead, if you've UV'd the objct it should remember all this information and plus it keeps the mesh intact, I mean with .3DS when I've tried it before all objects imported were tripled which is pretty useless IMO...

or you might wanna try .fbx which is becoming a standard quick.
