Very quick question about animation in 3ds max - imagine I model a character and I want to create, say, 10 animations for it. I'm using collada to export my models/animations and I was wondering whether in 3ds max, you have one file per animation or whether you can create a 'suite' of animations in one file?

I'm assuming it's one animation set per 3ds max file but how is this done in the real world?

Hi.
I use 3ds max 2009 and it only supports one animation. On the other hand, Autodesk Maya supports multiple animations.

I have read that some professionals model in 3ds max and then import them in Maya to complete their animations.

Also, i have heard that the new version of 3ds max, 3ds max 2012, supports multiple animations, in a feature named multiple takes, but i have never experimented it.

There is also a very interesting post about merging multiple animation files in XNA.
