I am currently learning Maya and Hammer (the map editor included with the Source -- Half Life 2 engine -- SDK). From my research, it appears that Hammer only supports MDL files. I found an SMD plug-in, but I am not sure what that format is actually for.
I have searched Google (for "maya export mdl"), the official Source SDK wiki, the hl2world wiki, this forum, asked on a Counter Strike: Source mapping website, and searched the official (included) Maya documents.
Can anyone tell me how I can export as MDL? It has become apparent that I will need a plugin or converter. On this forum I only found two topics
mentioning "mdl". The only relevant one was this topic
, except the links to the converter are no longer valid and I don't believe it supports Maya 7 anyway.
Any suggestions? Thanks,
