Textures 3dmax to 3dPDF

Post by Naud » Tue Nov 09, 2010 1:00 am

What can be the reason that the texturemaps used in 3dmax will not be exported to the 3DPDF?

Hello Naud,

The plugin utilizes the obj exporter for 3DS Max, so you should check the obj exporter options for OBJ to make sure it exported textures (and texture coordinates).

Please take a look at the documentation from http://www.simlab-soft.com/Downloads/3D ... om_Max.pdf to see how to do that.

Thx, it works very good. Now I have to find out how the navigation works in the 3DPDF. How does it rotate around the model origin?

The camera information is transfered to the 3D PDF file from 3D Studio, try to set a correct center of rotation for your camera and try to export the 3D PDF file after that.
