Character Animation Pipeline: Export & Import assets with 3DS Max, Maya, and Blender

Image Learn how to bring your creations from your favorite application into CRYENGINE with this short and practical video tutorial. The latest tutorial in our Character Animation Pipeline series, hosted by Roman Perezogin, one of our Junior Technical Designers, shows you how to import assets from different applications into the engine using the FBX pipeline. The tutorial shows you a simple workflow to export geometry and animation assets from Maya, 3DS Max, and Blender, and then drag and drop them into the CRYENGINE editor. The export process is demonstrated for each application, and then you are shown the import process for CRYENGINE, all in only five minutes.
