Hello everyone. I'm wondering what is the best version of 3D Studio Max to use with EAW. I don't want to buy the newest version if one of the older ones is all I'd need to create ship models, ect. So can people who use 3DS Max tell me what version is best? Thanks.
3D Studio Max 6 is enough :)
3Ds Max 6 doesn't support all meshes needed for modelling.
Use the Max 8...
Max6 supports all you need if you want to work for Empire at War. It might even be better since it was the production tool used to the art models in the retail Empire at War content.
oO Really?? I thought it lacks support for some shaders... But if that's what you say, than it's probably true.
But if you want the latest stuff not just for EaW but for graphics and other games...Max8 is the wiser choice I'd say.
