View Full Version : Hmmm, need some help my 3D Wizard Friends

Hi all, me again.
If I create a fully 3D Character within LW6 or 8.5, Without Boning or Weighting etc, how is LW6/8.5's Exporting options? Does LW give you a file format which will then open up inside 3Ds Max 6, ready to then bone and weight and animate?

If so, are there any known problems when doing so?

Or does LW6//8.5 not have the abilty to move files into other 3D Applications??

Please can someone help me!

I'm a newb myself but there are a lot of export options for models created with LW 8, and 3D StudioMax is one of them. You could also just export to .obj format and import that into 3DS as well. No idea which is better or how functional the import is.

Surely the question could be turned around just as easily:
Can 3dMax import a LW object or can it only do its own format, obj?

Either way, 'yes' is the answer, I'm sure.

FBX might work.
