Is there a way to convert a .max file into a .obj or .dae file to use it into Blender?
I searched a lot but I can't find a solution.
My pc can't run 3ds max

>> No.671827

Not without max installed. Use the questions thread.

>My pc can't run 3ds max
Use bootcamp or windows virtualization like VMware. That's how I run 3dsmax on a mac.

The problem is that my PC is not powerful enough. (I have an old PC with Windows XP)

>> No.671938

go to the questions thread you fucking idiot.

>> No.671941

Upload it somewhere and I'll convert it for you if you want

FBX, should work fine in Blender


The materials were some ancient V-Ray thing so you'll have to replace those yourself

>> No.672015

Then get a new computer that CAN run 3DS Max? Or is that out of the question?

>> No.672017

Protip: If you don't mind the noise, buy a decommissioned server. Just got my hands on a dual processor e5-2670 supermicro server for 1400$ Canadian; 16 cores, 32 logical cores 194g of DDR3 1333. Some guy bought it at a liquidation auction, but didn't know what he had... It isn't bleeding edge fast, but its well, well beyond any desktop computer I'd get at that price range.

When I got it set up (which was as easy as a fresh install of ubuntu) I did a quick speed test. It took me longer to physically click "render scene" then it did for the computer to spit out a cycles render of the fresh install startup cube scene in blender 2.79.

Also, buy old Tesla cards off ebay, asap... All the bitcoin miners are dumping their supplies onto the market cuz gpu mining hasn't been profitable for awhile now. Telsas may have no video output, but blender can use their CUDA cores just fine. Like 100$ will get you another 3k worth of CUDA cores easily.
