Hello friends!

I have a large commision, where a 3D model is supplied in Cinema 4D format. I was supposed not to really do anything with the model, just make an animation out of it, but the conversion process is turning out to be a pain.

We tried saving out the model from Cinema to the .3ds format, but that resulted in a mess, and the .obj format too.

I have polytrans but that doesnt support it...
any clues?

FYI Deep Exploration only supports older (5.x?) versions of C4d just in case you were wondering about using it.

FBX would be first choice, but if you run into problems try VRML and OBJ. They won't preserve as much information as FBX but more then 3DS.
