What do i need

Hi, Guys i want to start rigging some models from other game is theres any tutorial on it btw What tools do i need i already have 3ds max 2011 32-bit

As far as I know, 3ds max 2008 is the best for rigging because I think it’s the last max that support .vta (face flexes). Maybe 9 is supported with some plugin. I don’t think there is any .smd exporter/importer for max 2011.

Max 9 supports both the SMD importer/exporter as well as the VTA exporter. Not sure if later maxes do it as well.

EDIT
checked wunderboy’s site.
The VTA plugin is supported up to 2010.

There’s links to tutorials and basic info here
