I am just beginning to learn how to import 3d studio max objects. I am also new to 3d studio max itself, so hopefully someone here can see where Im going wrong. My problem is, after importing my object, it is displayed without any of the colors I specified when I built it in 3d Max. It is completely blue. I am not using any textures, it is a rather straightforward object. I based my code on the tutorial at http://www.gametutorials.com which claims to correctly import the object along with it's textures and colours, so Im not sure where Im going wrong. BTW...I am building the model in 3D Studio Max and exporting it as a 3DS file and not a MAX file, because the code I have is written for 3DS files. Anyone had a similar problem? Am I missing something..do I need to explicitly specify the objects color in 3D Max somewhere first?? [edited by - Dark_Streak on June 25, 2002 4:19:33 PM]
