Usually new versions of Max are backwards-compatible with older plugins. (I can use my Shag Hair for max 6 with Max 7 for example.)

That's usually, though. If it doesn't work, well...damn.

Does Max give you any errors concerning the plugin when you open it up? Something along the lines of "Could not load qtip21-max6.dlu, this was made for an older version" or something like that?

nope it doesnt show anything, i checked the plug in management and its there. i see the file, but when trying to export or import *.md2 or *md_ isnt there, even trying to force it to import doesnt work.

Hm, have you tried going into the utilities section and clicking "more"? Maybe they nestled it somewhere in there. I was having a similar problem with some inventor files. Have you looked at Polytans? Also, look for converters that may convert your md2 file into a max-readable format.

Do you have access to a lower version of Max? If so, I would use that plugin with a lower version. If you absolutely need, go ahead and email me the MD2 file and I'll import it in my version of 6 and export it as a .3ds for you.

well the main reason i'm looking for a plug in is so i can do it myself anytime wanted to. you say it works in max 6 right? did you do anything else but drop it in the plugins folder?

I haven't tried it in Max 6, however if it claims it's compatible, I see no reason to disbelive it. Looking at their site, it looks like it has its own toolset. Go to the utilities tab on the pannel to your right (The pannel with Create, modify, etc etc. Utilities is the last one with the hammer.) Then there should be a small button near the top that says "More". Look for QTip in the list that comes up.

Haha, sorry, but I have absolutely no idea. I've never used the tool before. I'd look around on their site and the internet, but I can't help you any more than that.


haha thanks anyway, you already help me out a lot, and i apreciate it. =D
