avatar mesh weighting?

Hi all, newbie here... does the Cal3D format carry mesh weight info along with the geometry/materials? What version of the exporter do I need for Max 9 (or XSI 5) and where do I find it? Are there any tutorials that describe the entire 3D Max -> Vizard pipeline for a complete character/soldier? fwiw, I'm tasked with generating a scenario that has a squad of soldiers walking a patrol down a city street. Thanks

Hi,

Are you referring to skinning, where the mesh is weighted to a bone? You can find a Cal3D exporter for Max 9 on our downloads page. The following page has info about the Cal3D exporter, including a tutorial:

Yep, I noticed that some of the examples (guy w/tophat and guy running around the room tutorial) are pretty rough (mesh not bending/folding with limb movement). Just wondered if the weighting info was included in the Cal3D format. Thanks for the tutorial link.

The Cal3D format supports vertex weighting. You have to specify the weighting using a modeling tool, like 3dsmax.
