Is it possible to convert animated .w3d files to other file formats easily?

Ideally, .x format.

For static objects, is it possible to easily convert them to .x, .obj, .3ds or any other format that's commonly used?

right now, no, I don't know any type of converting for that, you need to reverse engineer.

So you can't even open the w3d file in say GMAX or something, and then export it so another program can open it? Darn!

Thank you for the reply.

Import the W3D file (assuming it imports correctly/completely) into 3DSMax, then export using 3DSMax to the DirectX format.

You can download the DirectX plugin here: http://www.andytather.co.uk/panda/directxmax_downloads.aspx

he probably wants the animation too. With that you can only extract W3D file without animation.

This allows him to do just that.

Animations is just not possible atm as the W3D importer does not work with animated W3Ds yet.

Ummm, I can confirm that the importer DOES do animations. What I cant gaurantee is that it will import every single animation correctly (hence my request for files where it does not import the animation correctly)

It does? Surprised
I must have missed something (been a while since I used any of this stuff Razz ). I thought animations where still mostly broken. Good to know that is not the case!
