Want to learn how to Animate (view models and world models)--

So I have 3ds Max 2011 64 bit installed. I got the SMD exporter/importer from http://www.wunderboy.org/documentation.php

Now, I’m wondering where to go from here.

I’m not asking for a full tutorial ( although that would be helpful ), but if you could just maybe post some visuals or instructions on:

  1. how to import the valve skeleton / playermodel or whatever you view while editing
  2. make a simple animation
  3. export smd to mdl
  4. import to gmod

That would be very helpful.

I have no experience in animation at all, so please don’t assume I would know how to finish an animation without fairly descriptive instructions.
