hi,
im tring to export from sketchup to moray  and i can work it out.
i tryied to import 3ds to PoseRay (it has mdl exporter ), in poseray i see
the file perfect! and the materials , but the file that i get afetr i
export is mdu that moray can read but there is no materials, and if there
is i cant see iy in the liberary in order to edit.

i also used rehindgold3d converter, no geometry and no materials.
and i found on the web 3 tools to convert but nothing came out of it.
same deal with obj

I took a quick look at the sketchup web page, unfortunately the current demo
doesn't work on Win98.
Poseray has a User Defined Object (udo) exporter, not the same as a mdl
file. You might want to get your objects into obj format and try Alexander
Enzmann's Mesh Importer (MeshObj.dll). I think this imports obj objects into
Moray. Follow the web page link for the Animation and Rendering plugin on
the Moray web page.

hi thanks for replying...
well, i can see the geometry with no problems at all now, but what about the
materials?
i want to be able to edit them?
no matter what i did, there is no way to import the materials into moray?
 thanks again.

Materials in Moray are stored in the .mdl file or optionaly in a Material
Libraury .mtx. I'm not aware of any program that can create these, other
than Moray.
One option you can use is to create a  DirectCode material in Moray and
copy/paste the POV-Ray code into this.
When Poseray exports for Moray you should get up to 3 files; myfile.udo,
myfile.inc, myfile_mat.inc. Look in the myfile_mat.inc.
