Convert .max, without 3ds Max?!Archives Forums/General Discussion/Convert .max, without 3ds Max?!
| I have two 3d models which come in .max format, and I wish to convert them to .3ds, .c4d, .obj, or something else that a program other than 3ds max can understand.|
The models are at the following two links:
Do you know of any *.max to *.* converter programs, or would you be willing to convert these and email them to me?
| not looked through them, but are any of these any use? |
| Gmax is free and it can open .max files, can't it? |

Nope, pretty sure it can't.
Moreover, I'm pretty sure that .max is a closed format and cannot be read by any other app. Even the fantastic 3d Explorations only ever read .Max files if you had 3dsMax installed.
| I believe you need max .dll's to convert the procedural parts of the models etc and compile the final result. |
| .MAX is a closed format that nobody has yet been able to read. The closest anyone has gotten to viewing a .MAX file was in 3D Exploration, and you had to have Max open so it could send the data to 3D Exploration. |
| I just converted the blimp to 3DS with my old version of 3D Exploration Enterprise Edition.|
But the Zep is giving me problems.
The latest version of 3D Exploration wont touch either of them..sigh :(
| Dylan, check your GMail account :)|
I didn't want to put up a download link, since they aren't my models.
| You could just download the 30 day demo of 3DS Max. |
| no need, iv'e already converted and sent them to him via e-mail.|
| Thanks Opcode :) |
