The download runs as a trial version for 20 sessions, and is cheapat $125.00 ( compared to the CAT addon from Soft Image ) runs on Max 8&9 . i use Max 8 so i can give this a try but i don't see any version that will run on Max4/Gmax .. too bad because this is the tool for engine cowlings and canopy production.Thanks for the heads up C.J

Yes a bug prevents vista machines running Max8 from opening .dds files, same goes for the Nvidia plugin for Max 8, wont open a dds or save to that format during a compile with auto texture save enabled. too bad .I was trying to track down a solution to this last week and did a bit of consultation http://www.aerodynamika.com/cgi-bin/yabb/Y...?num=1191330005 at FFDS and checked a dozen links on the subjectto conclude we are screwed.

Yes. I was seeing the same type of posts. I think a fix may come at some point, but even though I am on XP still, it disabled my ability to see dds unless I manually move dds.bmi up from the dxplugins directory to the stdplugins directory. But there is other stuff there, so I have a feeling that I won't be able to export either, at least with dds textures. I could just use psd textures on my next project, but I like using dds.Anyway, if you hear of a fix, let me know too.
