Sorry, Strat but i am on red.
I don't know the interface.
Everything is weird to me.
My max could easily handle 230 mln plys.
C4d is dead with 50.

Love max, guys. Love max. It's awesome.

It's ok, but Autodesk really haven't put much effort into it in the last five years.

Can anyone help me with converting?

I have c4D scene with a building. Vray materials.

I need to load it in max with materials.

fbx succeeded in getting a valid geometry but no materials.

Is it even possible to get it with mats?

you wont convert from c4d to max whilst retaining all vray materials.

you might retain mapping co-ordinates, but you'll need to completely re-assign fresh max-vray materials. but it's hardly a ground breaking task is it.

Scene is a mess.
Messy names with only digits.
No layers.

And also [after importing fbx] every object has unique material.
Means i cant use "select objects with this mat" in mat editor and just reassign it to other one.

Maybe the export settings are wrong.
I mean why i get a unique mat for every object in scene?

Eventually i am rendering frames that i need right from the cinema.
It's amazing what closing deadline can force you to do. lol..

btw cinema is not that bad.
It's like making 3d in microsoft word.
So accurate and logic.
Our beloved 3ds max is a barbarian compared to this subtleness.
It's like comparing bully on a roaring bike with a gay rocket scientist.
))) My mind is melting. Gotta set my second render scene and go to sleep.

C4D and Vray are pretty good together. Very good in fact.. You just gotta getta yer head outta the gutter..

I'm currently in joint development of a plugin which seamlessly converts vray ( and standard ) scenes from 3dsMax to C4D.. But not the other way around - not much of a market for that ;)

C4d is beautif to use compaired to Max. But they both do the same thing, just get there differently.

For what its worth though i dont know why you just didnt assign fresh materials in max

Did I read somewhere that chaos group are working on a cross platform material file. Perhaps I am confusing with somebody else.

I've always felt that export options and file formats - within the 3D world - are all a bit behind the times.

Maybe just because there's so many software options and almost everything likes to be proprietary...

But as Ross mentioned... It really shouldn't be that much of a ballache to spit out a file which corresponds materials to polygons. Maybe some maps (procedural etc) might be missing or confused etc, but on the whole shouldn't be tricky? No?
