A lot of people don't know about this, but you can extract animations using this version of FE. I might have mentioned it before.

Open your model in FE, and then drag an animation entry onto the model. When you export the mesh, the animation will be exported with it.

Import is not supported.

Having limited success with this. The animation exports just fine, but import into 3DS is tossing crashes. I have been investigating some wizardry to help get the animation into a scene, and it seems I get slightly further in the import process when I remove the mesh from the file prior to import to 3DS, but still get a crash. I'll look into it more to see what I can come up with.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I knew you could view them, didn't know about exporting. Would it be possible to add some level of import support?(rhyme unintentional)

Short version, probably not. You need the formats (check), the source to FE (check, I think), and a coder (don't look at me) to write up import/export for it.

That's all assuming we find practical and functional ways of editing the data. Taking it out and putting it back in unchanged doesn't serve much purpose. Wink

There's a few Fable anims I posted up on my youtube channel from when I was playing with anims in 3ds max back in the day. There might be an issue with newer directx importers though.

That's probably the case. I used to use 3DS 7, which honestly served all my needs but can't install it anymore because DirectX is stupid. Using 3DS 2008 now, and you're right, the plugins do behave differently. I'll see what I can come up with.
