TXExport

TXExport is an X files exporter plugin for 3DS Max 4 and 3DS Max 5. It can export static geometry, skin meshes, bones hierarchies, b-splines, as well as animations. The plugin extends the standard X file format to enable features that are not originally available in X files.

Technical Features:

  • Supports static meshes.
  • Supports skin meshes. The plugin supports both the Skin modifier (ISkin interface) and the Physique modifier (IPhysique interface).
  • Exports vertex normals after handling normal groups.
  • Exports vertex colors.
  • Exports material data. Supported attributes are diffuse, specular, emissive, opacity.
  • Exports texture data and texture coordinates.
  • Supports bitmap textures and RGB Multiply textures. RGB Multiply textures are exported as D3D multitexturing. The plugin will also export the texture coordinates of each texture.
  • Exports hierarchies and bones.
  • Exports line shapes.
  • Exports nodes animation. Animation includes translation, rotation, and scale. Animation can either be an array of matrix keys, or separate arrays of translation keys, rotation keys, and scale keys.
  • Exports text, binary, or binary compressed x files.
