    well, if it works in version 2.0, it will work in 3.0 as well. However, if you want animation, one way to do it would be to export the animation as a *.3ds file from the program that can read those types of files - *.mdl, right?

    I'm not too sure, but some people were talking about using gMax - which is free from discreet, and made for games - and exporting out, but I don't think that it does *.3ds export.

    I've never used MilkShape 3D for longer than a few minutes, but I believe they have support for exporting to *.3ds. So, you can animated your file, export the *.3ds, and then open that into Swift3D.

    worth a try.

    but I do like the output of this using an animated model. But it is using Director/Shockwave.
