Hey everyone, Austin here with another 3ds max quick tutorial. What I'm going to be doing in this is I'm going to show you how to import or bring in files that are not Dot max into 3Ds Max. So what you're going to need to do is to just drop down this arrow or if you don’t have 2010, this could be a file button up here but you just going to press import. And you're just going to look for that file, the exported file so it would be right in here. And let’s say I want to bring in maybe this sniper I was making. See it’s a dot3ds file which that’s probably the file you’ll be getting from other websites. You won’t be getting it Dot max. You’ll be getting in dot3ds if you purchased it or someone was giving it out for free. So you press open, okay, and now it’s ion here. But let’s say I want to bring in something else from maybe a different file. That was the max file or just another dot3ds file and you wanted to bring it in but you also want to keep this here. So you go to this file section and you look for merge which if you're in 2010, it would be an import. If you're in 2009 or earlier, you just go to a file and be in its own little section called merged. So you're just going to press this and I’ll choose this man. And you choose what file you want to bring in so I’ll just bring in how about just these two and okay. Okay, looks like he has a gun through his head, don’t want that but it will keep the same size as the head before. So you have to scale them around and everything, right click, scale. Actually, it was a good size. Actually tats a perfect size for this. I think so. Now, maybe the gun should be a bit bigger. So my 3ds max is freezing up. Oh woops! We will just move this guy. Alright, this looks about good. So, this way it can make it look like he’s actually holding a gun,. If I wanted to rig him, move him around, animate whatever, unanimate whatever. Tadah! He’s got a gun. So yeah , that’s just the quick little tutorial on how to bring in, how to import dot3ds files or other types of files. Actually I’ll show you what you can import. You got all these things like Autodesk which is Dot fbx 3ds, Autocad, flight studio, whatever there is. Yeah and now you know how to merge or bring in other files into your current files. And if you’d like me to show you how to either make this sniper riffle or how I made this man right here, just comment that down in the comment section on YouTube and be sure to comment, write subscribe whatever. Thanks for watching.
