the x file store the frame and mesh.
you can use CD3DFile to load the x files.and you can control the mesh by CD3DFileObject.
the good sample is Dolphin in DirectSDK.

Now I can load a mesh, but is it true u can load animation also from x files ?? and I can''t find any info how u manipulate (rotate, transform, etc) the mesh .. can somebody give a hand ??
must I do it manually via vertices ??
I''ve tried to make simple animation using 3D Studio ,but the result after conversion was.. ehm.. screwed up ??
Is there any rules that I must follow to make the animation using 3D studio ??

You manipulate all 3d content in D3D, including meshes, with matrices. I believe this is demonstrated in the rotating tiger demo in the SDK.

I don''t know about getting animation from MAX to D3D though, since I haven''t tried it, but I read somewhere it didn''t work correctly. Maybe someone can confirm that?
