How do I mod or create DDS files for a game program in Max9? can anyone tell me of a plugin or a way to do so? I found something on Nvidia but its for max3-5 release and not 9.

Thanks!

in Max you can load a dds as a bitmap, to save DDS files download Nvidia's texture tool pack for Photoshop

Oh.. I thought the DDS file was an object file format not a texture one.

i found a plugin but it doesn't load properly

OK, thanks Kaj. Although I thought the DDS file was the character file. I guess that's the 3DM file instead. I don't think max imports those but the 3D Game Designer says it can be done in Maya and Max but doesn't go into a lengthy explanation of how to do it. My guess is there is some coding involved.
