Hi, I'm currently working on a 2D RTS (Dated Animation I know, but we do what we can) and basically I'm looking for a way to convert models I create in 3DsMax or any other 3D program into a set of 2D .tga's or such. I guess I would set the axis's and then let the program render the 2D version for each angle. I've heard of something that does this, paid or free is fine. Any help you guys & gals can provide while I search for it is greatly appreciated :)

If you artist doesn't mind doing some extra work, you could always render the model from multiple angles in 3DMax (using orthogonal projection) and save the results. Maybe there is support for scripts to do this automated, though I wouldn't know since I don't model.
