Exporting and Converting an Autodesk Maya 8.5 or 2008Scene - Macromedia Director 3D

Hi Everyone I wrote an in depth tutorial today entitled " Exporting and Converting an Autodesk Maya 8.5 or 2008 Scene to the Director .W3D File Format ". After doing a lot of research on the internet and coming up with blanks to answer my problem, I decided to put the pieces together and do some testing. I also noticed a lot of others asking the same question on other forums and blogs. More often then not, their questions related to my topic went unanswered or unsolved. I hope the tutorial is useful to someone. Here is the link: http://www.mentalquake.com/troubleshooting/case1/ ...

    Hi Everyone

    I wrote an in depth tutorial today entitled "Exporting and Converting an

    ".

    answer my problem, I decided to put the pieces together and do some testing. I
    also noticed a lot of others asking the same question on other forums and

    Hi Jon..

    Do you have any solution on switching z-up to y-up coordinate system export from Max to W3D?

    Thanks.

    On the export, no. But if you look at step 6, the FBX 2006.11.2 I installed for
    Max 8 has an option to switch incoming world coordinates between Y and Z, or
    vice versa. So a possible option could be to simply export it as a .FBX and
    then re-import it. You will need to install the appropriate FBX plug-in though.
    For Max 8.0 use 2006.11.2, any later versions go with 2009.3.

    Hope that helps.
