3ds max 5.1 exporter

Hi all

Is there any exporter plugin for 3ds max 5.1 (to egg format)?

I looked for it in Panda\plugins subdirectory but there was only maxegg7.dlo and maxegg6.dlo (for versions 7 & 6).


Unfortunately, the Max 5 headers redefine the standard library class “ostream”. This is incompatible with the most recent version of panda, which uses ostream.

I don’t think I’m going to try to fix it, myself. It’s just not worth it, considering that they’re up to Max 8 already. But if you want to give it a try, it’s not hard. Download the panda sources, learn how to use makepanda, then look for this code in “makepanda.py”:

DIRECTORY: pandatool/src/maxegg/

for VER in [“6”, “7”]:

Change that to [“5”, “6”, “7”] and it will try to build the max 5 exporter. You can debug the error messages from there.
