Google had turned up your page actually and I was going to write to you and ask for a few details on how you accomplished this?Well, I took the sample-point-cache-code - a maxscript that ships with the pointcache2 and replaced the writing function with a custom function. This function reads a sequence of obj files and feeds the vertex-data into the pointcache. Depending on how much time you want to spend with this, you can implement a nice converter. I decided to go the quick'n'dirty route and do face flipping and rotation correction (this is caused by the max z-up) in 'post'. there is also no interface as it is meant to be part of a pipeline.
Are you willing to share the code? There's no link on the page.. but the animation is evident that you got it working.I guess I should. Currently I am dreaming of using this in my 'reel'/'applications' to demonstrate that I have a deep understanding of these programs. But maybe I should write a tutorial for this, as it demonstrates how to fix a problem by using mockups. Georg -- Dipl.-Des. Georg D?mlein http://www.preset.de/
