I'm now working on an XNA 3D game, and I want to add animated models in it. I came across this example. I see there is one FBX file and a few texture files in the content project, and that in the code you can choose which "take" to play. In this code it is "Take_001". Please tell me: When I create and animate my own 3D model in 3DS Max (2012, since I was told it's only possible in this version), how can I define those takes? plus, are any configurations need to be made when exporting FBX from 3DS Max to XNA?

Thank you.

if you still want to use 3DS Max for your animation takes you can use this:

Animation in XNA is the one and only reason I did not pursue a game solution in XNA, the Microsoft example is nice, but it is the only animation I ever get to work.

If I remember correctly, you need to write your own BlendingAnimation.

Maybe take a look at CodePlex's XNAnimation, wich is currently being ported to 4.0

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for commenting. I actually got it working a few days ago! Although, I ended up using Blender. I created a bone system for the model, textured it, animated it and when exporting there's an "XNA Strict Options" check mark. I checked it, unchecked it, and then checked "Export Default Take". and it works :) \$\endgroup\$ – Itamar Marom Oct 7 '11 at 12:15
