Loading 3D Studio Max Files

Recommended Posts

The easiest way is to use the .ASE file format. 3DS is in binary and ASE is not. Just export a simple cube and take a look, you should be able to figure it out. If not try here. He converted all the code to .net but you should be able to still figure it out.

EDIT:
Heres a web site that has information on a lot of file formats.

but loading 3DSMAX .MAX file seems to be impossible to me for beeing available to you - the reason is simple: .MAX file is a procedural format, no data-format; and i''m sure that you are not interested in replicating the 3DSMAX API and it''s ton''s of (parameterized) funtion calls, which are used while the loading process of a 3DSMAX .MAX file. (why do you think are the most tools, capable of reading/loading .MAX files, using 3DSMAX (via the API) itself to display the files ?)
