Hi I''ve been using microsofts Meshviewer for some time now, but im becoming abit frustrated with it''s limited capability... Im wondering if there are any alternative DX model viewers which support shaders and/or DDS textures better (etc)? Cheers in advance, Rob

Have you tried EffectEdit (also included with the SDK)? It''s good for playing around with shaders. For more complicated models with multiple materials you could try something like FX Composer from nVIDIA, RenderMonkey from ATI or, depending on what 3D package you''re using, a shader plugin for your modeller.

You should try Rendermonkey or nvidia''s program (the name escapes me, but IMO nVidia''s is a bit better).

It''s mostly designed for shader development, but it''s got a rather intuitive interface for artists.
