Hello, I am trying to use the Panda exporter to export a 3D model from 3D Studio Max 7.0 to .X file format. My model is of a guitarist playing and the animation is simple hand waving and body rocking rhythmically. I test by loading the file in the DirectX SDK's sample called SkinnedMesh but it only works when I don't choose in the plugin to export animation for this character, or when I export simpler characters, such as 3D Max animated character tutorials. Can you please help me find a way to export this character to .X file? Even if by not using Panda, which is I think the only reasonable exporter out there for .X files. Or, is there any LGPL code for loading animated models directly from a .3ds file and displaying them using DirectX? Or from other format than both .3ds and .x, a format to which the 3D studio Max exporters are kinder. If there is anyone who can help, I can send you the .max file, but you'd have to promise to delete it once you finish, as I have bought this model (it's a cheap commercial model from TurboSquid). This is for a commercial project of mine gone awry. If you want, I can probably pay around 100$ for someone to sort the animations out. Thanks a lot.
