Thx for getting back so fast, was up till 6am slogging through wikis and forums.. seems I may be doing something very few are right now.. that being digital puppetry
I needed the objects merged, to put back the puppets face.. since the import was breaking apart the puppets, eyes, nose, skin, inner mouth, I needed it back together to use a BLEND on it as a whole..
Then once back together, I ran the different heads, only 4 right now for testing, into the BLEND..
but after speaking to you, and exhausting all other ways of import / export.. that I need to do it all "game style" texturing and uvmapping, which is ok.. worked a bit on an XBOX game in the past.. so it just a bit more time consuming.. I was just hoping "fingers crossed" it was going to like my models the same as MotionBuilder does.. but.. hey.. TD I think is more powerful than MB especially for LIVE playback vs pumping the data back into MAX or MAYA for rendering..
