3ds Max: Smooth groups IDs problem while exporting in .obj f

Posted: January 31, 2007
Hi people,

I have to export objects from Max 4.2 to .obj format.

It seems that Max mess up smooth groups while exporting.

I have tried to export a single box. In Max, smooth groups go from 2 to 7. In the .obj, it goes like 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 etc

It seems that it works this way : if I have a face with ID 16 in Max, it is exported as 2^16 in the obj.

Could anyone help ?

Thankx by advance, cheers !
