Doesn’t the DXSDK come with some exporter plugins? I don’t know for sure since I stripped my august 2006 version down to the bare essentials I need, but I do recall seeing some plugins included with the package.

The SDK came with a Maya .X exporter that I use. Being that Max has been more game-centric than Maya, logic would dictate the SDK would also include a Max .X exporter.

Note, I had to do a few google searches for instructions on how to install the plug in for Maya. It wasn’t obvious from the MSDN docs.

I’m fairly sure vanilla max9 does not have the required 3rd party plugin to do it.
