I'm using ColladaMax to export 3dsMax model in Collada, to load them in PaperVision3D after (a flex 3D rendering engine)

I have two 3dsmax model, (a woman and a man).
When I export the man, I have a tag "ibrary_lights" (used in "library_visual_scenes"), and then when I load it in PaperVision, all the textures are badly displayed.
When I do the same thing with the woman model, I don't have any "library_lights" tag, and I have no problem with the texture after loading in PaperVision.

So I think that the display problem come from "library_lights", as PaperVision3D is recent, maybe it doesn't support it.

I'm not an advance user of 3DsMax, so I have really no idea about the difference between the two files... (woman-man). I have already try to compare them, but I found nothing.

I have merged a mesh from the woman in the 3ds file of the man, and then export it in collada, I have found again the "library_lights", so it's not a problem of texture, but more of... "global setup".

If someone know what is the setup in 3DsMax that create the "library_lights" (to disable it), that could be very helpful !

check to see if you have any light emitters in your scene, they could be hidden

right click on your viewport and select Unhide by Name, or hit H and toggle the display filters to only show lights emitters, select them and delete them.

Thanks for this answer !

But I have removed all the objects that I don't need (so, for a person model, I just have Hair, Eyes, Face etc.)

So there is no light emitters in the model !

But as I am a beginner, I could have forgot any other basic things, so if you have another trick, please, tell me :)

To summarize, does someone has an idea about what make that 3dsMax build a tag during the collada export ?
