3ds max 2012

Anyone have a plugin for importing FBX 2012 instead of 2013?

I am currently using 3ds nax 2012 and 2014 and treid to import it with the standard FBX Plugins. Surely it gives you an Warning that it isn’t the version of the SDK, but it still works. The 2014 version gives me some wierd bugs and doesn’t seem to be working very well. The 2012 version instead seems to be working pretty good.

I noticed when you use the 2013 update to 3ds max 2012 it seems to work fine.

I think that you should download the latest version of FBX on autodesk website.

will try 2012… importing/exporting models seems to be a pain sometimes it depends on the program and whatever. :-p wish 3d model exporting/importing into various programs was less frustrating :-p.

For the Max 2014 issue, the FBX export options should give you the ability to select which version of the FBX format you want to export to, the FBX exporter for 2012 for example can go back several versions, all the way back to fbx 2006 (Max 8), so the 2014 (and soon 2015) should easily be able to export to the 2013 version. Hopefully epic will update the fbx importer with the incremental updates.
