The only one I can give you any info on is .obj.

Under Window -> Settings/Preferences -> Plug-in Manager, there should be an option to load "objExport.mll"

Load that, and when you have something selected, you can go to file -> export selection, and choose .obj format.

Maya should be able to load .obj's as it is, without the afore-mentioned plug-in to be loaded.

Well, at least I can kind of open the OBJ model, thanks

I just want to try and somehow get Warcraft 3 *MDX models into Maya and there is a program called Biturn which can convert the *MDX into the ones mentioned above. >.<

When I open the Obj the animations are for some reason then gone. :S

I'm not sure if animations "carry over" in .obj files.

Here's a thread concerning .obj's:

no, obj's only contain mesh information, all rigging/animation data will be lost.
