mnax is a closed source copywrited format. it is illegal to have a .mox stand alone exporter importer. 2.5 is aloha, not even beta. there is alot that dosn’t work. max can export a varity if files, get a 2.48 or 2.49 version of blender with the best import script for a legal format blender can import, that the only way to do it without paying more. if it is worth more money for you there is a program that works as a plugin for max so it only works with installed legal max avoiding copywrites is polytans.
but if you donthave max and are only downloading .max meashes or models from the web…it cant be done without getting sued for big bucks. and max is an autodesk product, it seems they make as much from sueing as selling. it wont be if you get sued, it will be when. they even sue innocent users of blender, wings 3d, and variouse other cad, mesh, photo, and video processing tools hopeing to get lucky.
if you dont pirate autodesk products you might get sued. the probability seems to be related to profit. autodesk employes as many lawyers as programmers it seems but you should be able to prove you innocence. if you do pirate autodesk you will get sued, and like i said auto desk hires the best lawyers you will lose and they will own you future paychecks for a while even if you dont make profit in cgi, they areas happy to garnishee your check from mcdonnalds.
no software is pirate proof, autodesk policy is to make piracy more expensive than buying it. access wont be enough in court, make sure you have licensed rights to use it. auto desk is like the don from godfather when it comes to cgi.
