quick 3d max question

Hey all its bein a long time since i was here i had to stop modeling for over a year now and im just getting back into it.

Anyways i have a quick question, I decided to help out a friend on small project hes doing with modeling and he asked me if 3d max can export normal object files? he was saying i should use blender but honestly ive tried it and in my opinion it just just terriable compared to 3d max. I cant even get my details showing in a render which i never had trouble with in max:-(

If i really have to i will use it but i would really prefer to use 3d max if i can, thank you in advance for any answers and im hoping im in the right section as it does have to do with modeling in a way haha,

please move if im wrong though:-)

Normal object file = .obj? Yes.

hmm i assume so, im not really sure myself thats why im asking haha

Normal object file makes no sense but "object normals or mesh normals" is a valid term. If he's talking about mesh normals then .obj should be able to export them.

ah ok so if its an obj file then max or maya can export them ye?

Yup Max and Maya. Fbx format is also a possibility and available in both packages.
