    Hellooooo...

    I was just browsing around one day and I came across SciFi 3D....

    now my problem is that what are MAX's, 3d's and LW's

    I ask because I downloaded sme of the files and I have no idea what they are!

    Thanks

    \\'ell obviously you took the red pill, lets see how far the rabbit hole goes.... Max is the extension for 3D Studio Max files by Discreet. LW is short for LightWave by Newtek, and 3ds is the industry standard for the original dos version of 3D Studio BEFORE it was called max. If you are wondering what all of these programs are, they are the 3D graphic design programs used to create objects in 3D "cyber space". You could go on forever, but goto http://www.ktx.comwww.ktx.com or http://www.newtek.comwww.newtek.com to see 3D Studio and Lightwave3D respectively. Or to see what can be done or how to use them, goto http://www.3dcafe.com.www.3dcafe.com. Also, the files on our site are projects created by team memebers of SciFi3D for the use of everyone to create still images, or animations for personal use. The files you downloaded are no use if you do not own a 3D app. To answer a question before it is asked, to find out how to get these programs, goto the URLs I listed, or any other Software sales site on the web. They run high in price, about $800 for Lightwave and $3000 for 3D Max(US Dollars), So they are big boy toys. You can get lesser products for cheaper, but those are the main ones. BUT remember the program is ONLY limited by the USER not the program!! Some great artist can use TrueScape and create some great 3D art... Hope all that helped some.....

    Yea, and before you ask about where else to get this type of software read the "3d Studio Max" thread from a day ago. It's all about alternative methods and warez, etc.

    One of these days I'm gonna put all of this in our FAQ so we don't have to keep answering the same questions. One of these days....

    I started out with Ray Dream Studio and Bryce, and I've moved on to LightWave. LightWave has a moderate learning curve, but the results are fantastic. There is built in Networking capablities if you have multipul computers hooked together using a node or eithernet cards.

    LightWave to me seems to be a complete package, and imports files from Bryce vary well! Some touch up action with some of the surface images, but well worth it!

    Most of us here use MAX. But we are very picky about not being seen as a MAX site. We accept all formats and try to do 3DS conversions for everything so anybody using any app can import a model. LW is an excellent app too.

    I had no idea this thread was transferred to Snowboards until now. Now I can edit it!
    Starting with changing the name of the company...
