galmore has little to show at this moment (0)

Default Im trying to Convert/Open MDLs for Autodesk 3ds Max 8 or Maya Unlimited 6.0

Ok I have tryed the Plugins/Addons that Blizzard has but when I run 3DS it tells me its for a different version.

So im wondering if anyone knows of any programs that will convert a War3 Model to something Autodesk 3ds Max 8 can edit and then Convert it back so War3 likes its format again.

I also have Maya Unlimited 6.0, I perfer 3DS but if anyone knows of a converter for Maya that will be fine to.

Well since no one has replyed i guess ill assume that no only blizzard tools does this and only 3ds 4 will run the tool set.

This does make me wonder if the 3ds people have ever heard of the concept 'Backward compatibility' but guess not

Maya is entirely unsupported. There are no good (as in entirely working) import tools for importing into 3ds max and none from Blizzard at all. Those that exist, I don't know about their compatability with 8. I only have ones for 4.

You should more look to scripts, the ones I tried are all scripts for GMAX, and since gmax is a "Max" version, the scripts also work in 3DSMax, surtenly in max 8.

If this supports animation, that, I donot know but the static meshes should do the trick .
Also the animation when export to mdl/mdx are not fully supported in the max scripting tools :(

Maybe you should check there...

The best importer, for now, is fadis moundir's MDX Importer.
The best exporter, for max 6 up & gmax, is Republicolas's Dex exporter.

Link for Dex's

and here, I've attached Fadis Moundir's MDX Importer.

Note for Fadis: Don't aply skinning when importing, it will give an error on max 6 up.
