hi in a 3ds file, what is the difference between a group and an object hierarchy? i was under the impression that all objects were stored in the same hierarchy, what then are groups? (i have read all the 3ds docs+tutorials i can find, but none go into much detail...) thanks! (also anyone know any good docs on 3ds keyframe animation???)

Think of it like this:

A group is a family, not physicly connected, just happens to be in the same area. A Heiarchy is the physical linkage of parts of an object (think skeleton).
