• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hi , so i tried to make a simple box in 3ds max and animated it by putting key frames and moving it about the x and y axis the animation works in 3ds Max , when i load it into MCX , it is just loading the object and not loading the animation and giving error "Could not find linked animation for object for Box001"

the both files exported .x and .xanim are in same folder

Here is a picture

Hi,

If you open the XANIM file, does it look like it contains the animation keys?

Hey Arno thanks for your reply , so when i open the the XANIM file with MCX this is what i get

and for instance when i opened it with notepad ++ to see if there is something in it , the text file looks very small implying that maybe it means the animation from 3dsmax was not exported but i can not figure out why

Looks like the animation did not export. Did you use the animation manager in 3ds to assign the right FS animation tags?
