Is there any way to export a Biped skeleton from Max7 to Animation Master?

Recommended Posts

like the title says, is this possible? I wont be able to use max for much longer on a daily basis, and its simply too expensive to buy a personal copy. Saw Animation Master and thought that it looked pretty good. Especially given the VERY reasonable price tag... :)

 

Ill keep it short and end it here, and have a good one all.

I know nothing of Max but I suspect it there isn't an easy or practical way.

 

But why a skeleton? I doubt that a rig in Max has anything on the better skeletons that already exist for A:M.

 

The booklet that comes with A:M has a tut on installing a rig.

I dont think that that is possible...

A:M hast some freeware (and payware)-plugins which can import *.3ds, *.obj, *.x and some more, but I dont think that you will be happy with the results.

*.x or *.obj are the most developed plugins I think, but after all, it is never a good idea to try to import polygonal data to Patch-data-based-programms if you want to animate the model in a complex way.

 

In the end you dont have to... if you are after animation characters, A:M is the better way anyway.

I think biped skeltons are quite equal to a A:M skeleton with SmartSkins and may be CP-Weights...

 

You should try to animate and model in A:M and you wont be disappointed with the results. A:M is much more easy to handle and much more powerful in terms of characteranimation than the plain 3ds is and it is equal or evern better than 3ds with character studio...

No problem to import bones into AnimationMaster (v12) for a while now :

use the LWO import plugin made by Masashi Watabnabe, plugin you can find :

here

 

You obviously must get a lwo exporter for MAX or a 3D file converter app.

 

Hope this help.

 

Best regards,

 

Alain
