Exporting Animated Model From 3DS Max 2010

Jan 5, 2012 at 3:23 AM

Does anyone have a recommended plug-in for 3DS Max 2010 to export an animated model? I've tried kW X-port and PandaSoft DirectX X exporter, but both give me trouble. kW X-port fails when I try to export the model (Line 1047 of exportmain.cpp in the kwxport project, gm->InitializeData() returns false). PandaSoft simply doesn't give me any animation data in the outputted file.

Does anyone know what the developers of Engine Nine used to export the Peon.x file that's used in the SkinnedModel sample?

Thanks in advance!

The peon model was exported using Panda X exporter about 4 years ago, I don't remember the version of 3DS Max, the version of the exporter and the detailed export settings. I'll try to re-export it again using the latest version and get you back later.

Hey yufeih, thanks for the reply. Don't waste your time. I reinstalled the latest version of the Panda X exporter, played with the options, and managed to get the animations loading. Sorry for the bother. Take care.
