Hi all! IS it possible to import 3d models in VB for my rpg game. I know how to create 3d models on 3d studio max with extension of .max .3ds or I can convert to .avi Is it possible to have avis like (image) to show my character???
I bet billsoo has the answer to that :)
the animation control will play avi files, but I don't know much about it, I just came accross it trying to play animated gifs

i dont know anything about 3d
but i was wandering how far have you made your rpg yet?
i have started learning a few things like click systems, special movement etc.
so have you actually made any models yet.
even tho this may not be of any help but you could make the model do the thing that you want and take a picture of it and use images instead of models, even tho model idea would be much better
or you could try the avi idea and have the model performing the function

Yes I am already trying the images idea but it is not that good since the images is jerky. As in I change image to image but the movement is not smooth. if I can make the model move or play an already made movie(eg walking) then that woul be better.
I was wondering wether it is possible to make my character walk e.g in an avi and then control the avi on the direction keys so it seems that the character is walking by the keys. Do u understand? I once tried this technique in director and it worked.

I created a model in poser and rendered each of the 30 walk frames as bitmaps then rotated the model etc.
finally created masks and bitblt to screen and based on keypresses would "walk" in that direction

oh that's cool i didn't think about saving bitmaps for poser figures ^_^ well i'm going to try and do that as well now!
