Default 3DS Importer Problem

Hi,

I am trying to import some 3DS models into Maya 7.

I downloaded the 3DS Importer from Autodesk(Alias) website. It is called 3dsimporter.mll which should be copied into the plug-in directory.

Everything is done. However, the "loaded" tick box in Maya's plug-in manager cannot be selected so that the plug-in cannot be enabled.

I don't know why it happens. Can any body give me some clue?

Thanks

canīt tell about the plugin, but embedded in/export format of both software I use is fbx file format (obj also sometimes for small geometries) which works pretty fine.

I had the same problem. Download the Bonus Tools from the site and it will have the 3DS Plugin that works for maya 7.

Thanks. The 3DS importor in the bonus tool for maya 7.0 works perfectly.
