Max has a great low-poly modelling tutorial that should be all you need to get started...  I'm willing to give you any help you need learning the UI,etc within the bounds of my own experience - just ICQ/PM me.

(I should probably write a proper Max-FS tutorial sometime)

Sorry, but no, unless you can get me the r3 SDK - it wasn't available at the Discreet site (as the others were).
Probably away. Contact through email.

Rats....I don't have the R3 SDK, so I'm basically screwed unless I 'acquire' R5....
Thanks for the quick reply anyway

If you have R3 installed with the SDK, I just need the proper header files and libraries...

Or, build with r3, and import to GMax (if the plugin will work... IIRC, GMax is about the equiveleint of r5...) and then export...

HELP ME! I's anyone else getting the same error message that I am?
BTW does max have a errorlog somewhere I could look at?

Not that I know of, but you can try to check the Plugin Manager window to see if it gives you more information. It's working on my MAX 5, so I have no idea why it wouldn't work on yours.
Probably away. Contact through email.

New version, with Glow Point generation support. You'll still need to adjust the data on PCS, but it'll create the glow point groups and the actual glow points (eliminates the hassle of manually entering the position of each glow point).

I'm accepting suggestions regarding how to define the normal of each point, and the on/off data. Right now it uses some presets and you have to edit them on PCS.

for normals (you mean orientation?) use a line connected to a point, named something to designate it is for the point, and then use a 1 or 0 in the point name for on or off... my 2¢

Can you use a directed light for defining the normal?

I heard that 3d Max 7 has been announced. If a sdk comes out for that, are you planning to make an exporter for it aswell?

Probably wouldn't need to if Max 7 is backwards compatible.......

I doubt people will all suddenly ditch their versions and simultaniously upgrade to 7... old versions of MAX are expensive enough... let alone brand new ones... Mine was $500 with a student discount...

[color=66ff00]Did a bit of research into a Gmax plugin, take a look at the note I added to Styxx's first post.

For some reason, my Max copy has invalidated my authorization code... So until I get to do a new reformatting of my HDD, is there plans for a GMAX plugin? Do you need a GMAX Sdk for it?
