Does anybody know, which 3D charecter animaton software(affordable) can export to a single .x file more than 1 single animation set ? EDIT: As Gage64 says - read the FAQ on what is and is not an acceptable subject title. 'lamks' is not acceptable. [Edited by - jollyjeffers on June 20, 2008 3:19:45 AM]

Tip: If you change the thread title to be more descriptive (instead of a random rearrangement of your nickname?), you are more likely to get help.

You may wish to think of your tool first and your format second. Generally speaking the .X format is a legacy of Direct3D and never really took off outside of the programming community - real artists rarely, if ever, use this format.

There are 100's of file formats out there and you're bound to find that your preferred tool will support a number of these. You can then put together the code (or download appropriate libraries) to convert or load whatever data your tool gives you.

I don't know of a modeling program that exports multiple animations.

However:

If you export a text format x file, you can cut-and-paste the animation set from a single animation file to a master mulitanimation file. Ensure all animations should be based on the same hierarchy.

Also, MeshView, provided in the Feb 2005 SDK, will add animations and export a multianimation x-file.
