Does anyone know of any way to import M3 models into Maya? I find 3DS Max animation tools to be pretty terrible and I'd like to animate in Maya but I haven't found a way to import models into Maya. I know there are ways to go from Maya to 3DS Max but I'm trying to animate the SM_Nova model and I need a way to get it into Maya.
Get plugins for max and maya to import/export FBX file format. It saves animation information and I've used it to import units from War3/SC2 with animations straight into max, as well as animations out of maya back into max/SC2.
I haven't tested how IK works, so it might be best to bake your animations before importing them into SC2.
