Is it possible to use 3DSMax(4.2) to export lighting solution for particular scene? I am thinking of writing my own lightmapper but I am curious if it is possible to ue Max instead.

Lol, nice answer. I''d be interrested in this as well, so:

How can you use 3ds max to export lighting information for a scene, and how do you use it in an engine? Does it "bake" the lighting information onto textures, or produce seperate lightmaps?

The render to texture features were added to MAX 5.0.
Maybe it can be done by using tons of maxscripts, but that''s beyond my knowledge.
