What would it take to make the 3ds max c++ exporter with 3ds max 6 ?
What I’m getting if I try it is a tremendously helpful “procedure not found” error (would have it been so hard to mention which function/symbol wasn’t found ?), so if anyone from Discreet could give me some pointers as to what is missing in max 6 that the exporter needs, I’d appreciate it.
Without actually looking at the error message or dialog box, I am guessing that the collada_max plugin is a DLL which is dependent on another DLL e.g. libxml/libz which is not found in the same location where the collada_max plugin was installed.
The Max Collada distribution contains additional dlls including an updated igame.dll which is used by the c++ exporter.
I got this error when I first gave the plug-in to one of our animators - I had forgotten the other dlls.
If you want a version for Max6 I assume you’d need an updated igame.dll for max6 OR change the code of the Max C++ exporter to make it maxsdk only and then you could compile it against the max6sdk. The plugin uses igame a lot so could take a lot of work to move it over to maxsdk only.
