Free modelling software that export .X files

Recommended Posts

I''m looking for some software that''s free and exports to .X files. Some tutorials would also be nice. Anyone know of one that has a small learning curve? Thanks. -Nick

You could also get the Maya 4.5 learning edition which is free and use the Maya exporter that comes with the sdk?

gmax: exactly the same as 3d studio max except can''t render (it''s designed for use in modeling for games) and is completely free. www.discreet.com


Gmax is free, yet commercial. It works, but its file format is encrypted and unknown. It can only export to a few supported game formats, the only interesting one is md3. But then you are stuck with the quake 3 restrictions, like the model being split in 3 parts, head, body and legs.

I use anim8or which is 100% free, comes with manual, online help and a fantastic forum and it is extremely easy to use

You can export your creations to 3ds format then use conv3ds.exe to convert to x format. This works perfect, I should know I use it to get all my creations into DX9 using VB.NET

Check it out at www.anim8or.com
