View Full Version : preliminary process failure

10-24-2011, 03:00 PM
I am trying to export a 3ds file from lightwave, but I get an error message. See image below.

The model only has 27,000 polygons, no ngons, or quad polys.

I would like to export a 3ds because it seems to be a popular format on turbosquid.

are there any 1 or 2 point polys?

OBJ would be very well for turbosquid. reopen the obj to verify, it is broken some times.
FBX would also be good. but yes, 3ds is something all/most 3d apps can read.

There are no 1 or 2 point polys. Just triangles.

Interesting, 'cuz according to the screen shot you posted, there are 51 1-point polys and 1272 2-point polys!

The point statistics say it has 51 one polygons and 1272 two polygons. Although the polygon statistics say 0 one vertices and 0 two vertices. Im a little confused.

just export it to fbx and you'll be fine. 3ds is a kinda sucky format because you can only export triangles
