...i won't bother you here about how good/nice/fast/interactive this stuff is
just try it, it's free...

...just consider a click on the orange button below the menu,
if you use something for production

I have been using 3DS Max for a long time and am very confident in the plugs I have written for it.
XSI is a different beast and while I have tried my best to ensure all is 100% working,
you may come across something that needs correcting or improving.
I am open for comments and suggestions, whether they be good or bad.

 export to ZBrush-reimport to 3ds Max, export as obj, and again and again, and...
 then you possibly end up with wrong uvs (which is NOT the expoters fault btw.)

 This small utility tries to fix that issue, when you got stuck with messed up UV's.

 <--- the download is over there, just above the donate-button :)

 for 3ds Max 2015 and 1016
 last update: 01.10.2015
 based on Thomas Luft's Ivy Generator
 grow ivy's on any model in your 3dsmax-scene, good for hiding imperfections on your models :)

 v0.976b for 3ds Max 2010 up to 3ds Max 2018
 last update: 09.05.17

 initially created for Poser 6 import, but it evolved over time
 it has now been tested with 20++ professional programs out there
 it imports all material definitions correctly

... how she looks, right after import

 v0.94b for 3ds Max 7 up to 3ds Max 2008 x64
 v0.94b for SoftImage|XSI 6.x (32- & 64-bit)
 last update: 16.05.08

 well, you might also want to export...
 only std-max material support (for now)

 v0.94b for 3ds Max 7 up to 3ds Max 2008 x64 (XSI-version possible, if needed)
 last update: 16.05.08

 last update: 03.11.16

 Terragen importer
 imports Terragen terrains, camera/sun/render-settings
 100% match of a tg-render with MAX/XSI camera view
 don't use curved terrains, they won't match exactly (needs to be fixed)

 last update: 07.08.09

 a interactive terrain generator, far from being finished...
 it exports terragen-terrains, normalmaps and tga-files
 you can also generate seamless procedural textures, but that was not my intention :)
