XFile

Hi vvvvolks,
I found a C4D plugin to export meshes as xfiles. It gives many export settings but I don’t know how to handle them to get the best compatibility with vvvv. What must I be vigilant to (in a general way)?

Cheers,

I found a .x exporter for 3dstudio max, it’s called panda exporter and is located here: http://www.andytather.co.uk/Panda/directxmax.aspx . I’ve used it before to export .x files for various programs and it seems to work well. I’m very new to vvvv so maybe I don’t know the proper chain for displaying a loaded x file, but I wasn’t able to get mine to work either.

Are there standard .x format settings or setup in the 3d app that need to be done to make it work?

Thanks for any help.

Well, after a google search I might have found my own answer, sorry :(

EDIT:

Wow, my noobness strikes again, the link just links to a dead page for the panda exporter. Well, there is the updated link anyway!
