    Help with uni project

    stripey11
      ok so im doing a uni project and im doing a quick and easy snowboarding game i have made the game in 3D studio max and i need to import this 3D environment into director so i can control the snowboarder and play the game. I am quite a novice at director and believe i need a plugin to get my 3D environment into director can anyone help with this?
      Also i need to then use the arrow keys to control the snowboarder which i have been researching but not coming across much help so if anyone could help with this then it would be very helpful

      Thanks

          Hi there, just come across your post while trying to find some help myself lol

          Anyway, what you need to do is:

          1. Update 3DS Max (service pack 2)
          2. Then restart the package and open your scene for the game
          3. File/Export - Scroll down the file types to export as and you will now find .W3D

          // .W3D is the only file type you can import into director for 3d scene's //

          That's basically how you export the scene so that you can then File/Import in Director

          - So far as controlling the snowboard here is a link to the codes for each key on a keyboard:

          I think you should be able to do the rest, hope this helped!
