getting an old model to export properly - help please
show user profile  thegeneralsolution
I posted about this in "finished art" since I'm just dealing with an existing model but I think this is a more appropriate place for it.

I bought a model from turbosquid.com and am just trying to use the model for game programming purposes. The model is fairly old and while I can open it in 3DS Max and view its animation, exporting the file to a .3ds isn't working properly. No error message is given, but the resulting output file is scrambled. I tried exporting to a variety of file formats (including some non-standard formats via plugins or scripts I found online) without success.

I am able to draw a new model from scratch (i.e. a teapot) and export it without a problem. So its just something wrong with the model.

If someone experienced here would like to either give me some tips, or would like for me to send them the model so they can try exporting it, I would be very grateful. I already paid for this model and I haven't found any others online that suit my needs.
