Joints improt? is there a way

Hay I was wondering if there is a way to get joints with a modal from maya into blender. Is 3ds a way to do that or what is a format that blender and maya support or have an add-on for. Thanks.

Um… Does anyone know the answer? if not just say so, so i can move on with my life.

I don’t know much about this, but if you just want to import a .3ds file there should be a script built in with blender to do that. However the only time I used it I was trying to import a model I found on the net, but it was made of a lot of separate objects and they all go collapsed or something upon import, so I didn’t do anything more with it.

P.S. A lot of times threads go un-answered here, when it is a question like this it is best to just look for the answer with the the wiki over at, and/or just google it. I’d say that 90% of the time you can find the answer in a reasonable amount of time.
