building a scenery - Macromedia Director 3D

Hi there, I wanted to know what type of modeling program do you guys like to use for building the scenery. Meaning are you using the same program as you are when you are model your objects such as a racing car or is there another type of program for building the scenery? I ask this because unless I am using the wrong type of modeling program, it seems more complicated to build an entire race track for a 3D racing game, then it is to model the cars.

    Hi there,
    I wanted to know what type of modeling program do you guys like to use for
    building the scenery. Meaning are you using the same program as you are when
    you are model your objects such as a racing car or is there another type of
    program for building the scenery? I ask this because unless I am using the
    wrong type of modeling program, it seems more complicated to build an entire
    race track for a 3D racing game, then it is to model the cars.

    For right now I am using Animation Master, which I know it is not the greatest
    program when it comes to building 3D games for shockwave. Though if I do it
    correctly by keeping the spline count low enough so that when it is converted
    to polygons it does the job.

    Some game companies use 3DS Max to model the track and edit the game
    parameters.

    You can use 3DS Max both as a modeller and as a level editor by adding
    userData to your models that will be used thereafter in Director.

    For Shockwave 3D in particular, use the other Discreet program, Plasma,
    another version of 3DS Max (5) tailored for the web, with Shockwave 3D and
    Flash output capabilities.

    Cheers,
    Karl.

    It's not that 3DS Max 6 cannot be used for the same purpose, but Plasma is cheaper and does the job well.
