I have 3Ds Max 8 and I have created 3d animations in it that I would like to convert/render into adobe Flash CS3 so I can use them in web sites. But I am having a hard time figuring this out. Searching the knowledge base here at ee comes up with a lot of qustions one doing this but no blunt or even a hint to answer on how it is done is given. Could some one please reveal this secret? Thanks

I'm a big fan of erain's Swift 3D as a standalone product, but they also produce a Max plug in too

I second that motion on Swift3D.  It's a great, easy to use animation tool.  I often use it for still images, though it's a great animation tool that's designed specifically for export to Flash.

Also, Photoshop CS3 and CS4 Extended open 3DS files, so if you're looking for 3D stills you can bring into Flash after a bit of processing, that might be a good option.

Thank you guys! Just bought the Swift3D Max plugin - so we will see how it works!

Graphixer:

I have Photoshop CS3 but never heard of opening 3d objects in it. Are you able to open 3ds max objects?

I believe 3DS import only works with the 'Extended' versions of Photoshop CS3 and CS4.  I have CS4 Extended and it worked great.

It should be as simple as File > Open.  You can't open 3DS files?

Actually, for CS3 it might be:
Layer > 3D Layers > New Layer From 3D File...

Try this tutorial.
