I have been searching for a while for a way to get an animated mdl or mdx model into any 3D animating software (such as Blender), but so far have not had any success.

I found a few methods of getting textured static mdx or mdl models into Blender/Milkshape/Hexagon, but no one seems to have written an importer that deals with the mdl/mdx model's keyframe animation.

On that note, if anyone knows of a way of importing a keyframe-animated 3DS model into Blender, me and alot of people would appreciate it if you could let us know.

Thanks for any help! :)

PS: For anyone curious about static MDL or MDX -> Blender, see here: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/WarCraft_MDL
