How to export an animated character in 3DS?
« on: May 12, 2016, 09:14:01 am »

Hello everybody, my name is Guido and I'm a new Anim8or user.
I need to export an animated character in 3DS and after convert it in fbx. From what export: object, figure, sequence or scene?
Sorry for my bad english, thank you very much

Guido

Bones and Therefore animated characters cannot be exported in 3ds or any other format for that matter, you are stuck with the .an8 format I`m afraid!

You could use Caligari Truespace 7.6 to create and animate the model. Truespace, is easy to learn like Anim8or, but supports exporting animation is 3ds binary. Here's a download link> http://gamespacelite.freeforums.org/download-caligari-truespace-7-6-and-truespace-6-6-t483.html

Truespace, is free and should help get your model made and animated. TS, uses a simple bone/skeleton IK based key frame animation system. I learned how to use it in less then a month. Anim8or, is awesome but animation export is not really supported currently. Leroy. Support for Truespace usage can be found here> http://united3dartists.com/forum/search.php?search_id=active_topics&sid=ae29c6e84f7fc5a87747df9f99424f86

Good luck, and PM me if you need help getting started with Truespace. Leroy.
