I am running blender on three platforms and I have one big problem. I did most of my work in Cinema4D on a Mac and a student license of Maya on an SGI Onyx.
Now I am thinking of switching to Blender due to licensings costs, and I already played around with it for a month or so.
Till now, I found NO way to get my previous work into Blender, and if I can’t find a way, I guess I have to stick with Maya and Cinema4D (due to it’s blazingly fast renderer).
I tried exporting both to DXF and VRML 2.0 from Maya and Cinema4D. When I try to import the files in BLender Mac/PC, it says it doesn’t recognize the file.
Under IRIX, Blender opens the file, pushes one of the CPUs to 100% for around five minutes, and stops, but it hasn’t importet anything.
Is there any way, any application I can use to get my meshes WITH textures into Blender? I would even sacrifice all the animations I did, all I need are the meshes, the object information and the textures.
Any help is greatly appreciated…
