If you want to export your gmax files, gmax only allows P3D files for exporting. There are no converters for this file format. So what if you are learning 3D modeling or animation on gmax, and want to use the pro version 3ds Max? (It used to be called 3D Studio Max.) All your work, at least your 3D meshes, can be exported to 3ds Max, or any 3D modeling software program that accepts the OBJ file format, like Blender 3D.

These tools and sites take advantage of the higher speed and bandwidth of today’s Web with full-motion video, 3D animations, and interactivity.
