:o)ASC is even easier to understand than ASE....
I wrote an ASC importer for MAX 2 using MAXScript some days ago,
and it works quite well (except Camera FOV import).

Please email me if you need any specific info.

1. Looking for Maya ASCII Export file format


I am writing a program that needs to import polygonal data from Maya. Maya
has an ASCII file format (similar to Softimage's text file format) which
exports all the data I need (geometry, perhaps normal information, texture
coordinate mapping, and a reference to a texture file). I have taken a
look at this file and while I do understand where some of it comes from, I
can't figure out a few things. I am looking for some place either on the
Internet or available from a developer or something which explains the
format of this ASCII file so I can add support for it in my program. I
have searched the Alias Wavefront manuals and web site to no avail.

I do not read this newsgroup, so please respond by e-mail. Once I receive
a response, this e-mail address will be deactivated to stop spam.

Thanks in advance,
