I am working with Maya and Bryce and trying to figure out if
I can use w3d SDK to export files in the .w3d filetype. Anybody
have any ideas about this? It would be nice if there was a list of
programs that were compatible with w3d SDK. Also if you know of a
way of saving or exporting .w3d files in Maya or Bryce let me
know...I have definitely been struggling.
There were an exporter packaged with maya up until version 8.
If you do have a that you can simply go into the plugin menu and
check the load button next to the exporter. If you have a more
recent version of Maya I belive you can export through polytrans. A
quick google search also revealed a donation ware program calles
Sw3dC that can convert from fbx to w3d, you could give that a try.
Also I believe with the sdk you can use it to write your own
