I am having trouble when I try to use animation from 3dsmax in direct3d environment. I can get stills and the first frame of an animated figure to show up, but no animation! Where am I going wrong? I tried to read the sdk help but it just gave me a headache. I make a scene in 3dsmax and animate it, then I export it as a .3ds file, then I conv3ds it to an .x file. I use the .x file in my directx environment, and then what?—or am I doing it wrong?

Are you using any parameters for the conv3ds? If so, what paramters are you using?

No, I’m not using any parameters. Should I be?

I was doing something wrong before. When I read your previous reply, I looked at it again and I started using -A; but it wasn’t working. I tried it today, and ‘poof’ it works. Tried it several times and now it is working fine. Thanks
