    guys if you don't know then this isn't for you!
    I'm sick of people wanting to be able to do everything there is... it takes AWHILE to learn 3d modelling so if you don't know how don't post here until you do. BTW if you are not serious about 3d modelling (as in making commercial stuff) don't buy 3dsmax. (www.discreet.com)

    oh hey... my first time on this forum. i like this format where the text box is at the bottom of the screen. it might be better at the top so u can see the last comment you're responding to.

    despite what alot of ppl on forums say, 3d modelling is not that difficult. don't be afraid to try it because other ppl say it is. most of em havent even tried. but if you do, be prepared for a lot of work. if ur not willing to shell out the effort, go do something else, as mr. amro suggests.

    in regards to silly questions.... i.e. what is gmax.... ummm... google it bro. if ur not willing to research this stuff on ur own, don't bother trying 3d.

    it's alot of self motivation... looking up stuff on the net, buying books, taking classes...

    speaking of classes, if u don't have a version of 3ds max, that is wat i'd suggest that u do. go to a community college that has it. u can work on ur project from there,

    while learning things from ur teacher and other students. from my experience most of these classes are pretty laid back, and the teachers will let u work on watever projects u want to.

    a few links:

    www.wings3d.com --- the best modeller, aside from MIRAI possibly, today. forget max. make ur models here, export as .3ds, and import into max, to animate and optimize.

    spiraloid --- google the site. it's not spiraloid.com. alot of ppl post their work here. it used to be a better site, but it's still not bad.

    bay raitt, who did the facial animation for gollum, owns this site. he visits between projects i think.

    www.cgtalk.com --- there are some free models in the news section u can use for reference.

    www.3dtotal.com --- some tutorials. free models also

    www.3dbuzz.com --- downloadable video tutorials

    there was an .mdx exporter they were doing in milkshape 3d awhile back as well. i don't know if it is still around. ask the mods or admins. i think it was republicolas...

    if u can't do the community college route (which is the best option) try the milkshape 3d exporter.

    Alot of ppl dl this for gmax and think that thay cant use it with it cus it wont instal but the truth is you can use it! this is what you do you dl QMPQ and use that on the installer and it well extract all of the files out of it into a seprit folder. you go into that folder and export all the stuff inside to your gmax deritory and there you have it! im not shure -WHARE- you put the files but you have the files!

    Edit 1: seems like the plugins for it dosint work

    Edit 2: the .max model files dont work you might need to find some type of converter for it so it well turn .max into .gmax

    Edit 3: probebly the only thang you wold want this for if you dont have 3dmax is the texture files thats in it
