Hey guys, my goal is to have a character mesh with a few animations in a single file usable in 3ds max. This is possible right? This is what I've done so far:
Ok, so I got a mesh from one of the RE games, I think I got Claire's mesh from one of the Chronicles games using Dolphin. I also have a few animations I want to save with the mesh, in a format usable in 3ds Max.
So, in Max 2017 I use ActorX importer and choose an animation. Since I'm new and don't know what I'm doing, I choose a single animation and then export as 3ds Character file (.chr). I then open a scene I've been working on and choose Import -> Merge -> "Claire with death animation.chr".
At this point, all I can do is position her and found out she animates once I press play or scrub the timeline. How would I choose which animation plays, if I had for example two or more animations imported before I saved the mesh as .chr? Should I even be saving as .chr and instead be using export.fbx instead?
I'm very new to all of this, but I'm taking it one step at a time, I've been doing some beginner 3ds max tutorials and playing around on my own. I even bought a second monitor for this, since I really wanna learn how to use 3ds max. Hope I don't sound like a kiddo (no offense to youngsters!) I'm actually approaching middle age...just picking up a new hobby to replace a few bad ones I've decided to stop
bonus question: how should I be scaling my characters according to my scenes? Claire Redfield is 169 cm tall. In my scene I have 2 buildings that I built using real world units (as opposed to generic units). What's my next step for scaling?

egglesplork: Won't find this Easter Egg anywhere else on the Internet! HARRISON FORD played a robot killer in the movie BLADE RUNNER. "HARRISON" sounds like the French word "HERRISON," which means HEDGEHOG. So... WHO BETTER TO FIGHT ROBOTS THAN A HERRISON, a HEDGEHOG!

Mr.Curious: egglesplork - Whether or not Deckard (his character name) is a replicant is debated by many.

Claire Redfield: Does anyone have any tutorials on using Blender with RE4UHD? (Characters in particular.)

egglesplork: Using one of those new-fangled SSDs to UNPAK a RE2 pak with QuickBMS. WHEE-E-E-E...! WHAT SPEED!

egglesplork: Hey, Mr. Curious! In the ORIGINAL BOOK (psychedelic as it was) and both the semi-official novel-sequels? Dude is human! In the movie? Dude is human! He sucks too much physically to be a replicant. That's where I'm leavin' it.
