has anyone actually used mesh deformation in DBPro yet?
If so, what format did you export to? I haven't tried it out yet
I know everything! At least I don't know anything I don't know.

i've tried a .3ds format model using bones animation exported from milkshape and it didn't show correctly in DBPro (geometry knackered up) BUT i'm just learning to do this stuff. so don't take this as read. I'm having a major go at mesh deformation animation this weekend so we'll see...

I asked basically the same question only in ref to a specific charactor/model and received no real answer either other than changing of vertex positions. So I don't think DBPro supports mesh deformation in .3ds or any other format as far as I have been able to find out. I may be wrong but no one seems to responds saying it will or they have.

I retired so I could work for 18 hours a day rather than $18 an hour on the days I worked.

Use mdl, not 3ds.

I have made and animated a .X model in MS3D v1.6.4 and it works just fine mesh deform and all. I don't think 3DS supports mesh deform in DBPro. I think just bones.

3DS doesn't really support Mesh deform at all...
The format is far to tempermental!

I have created a MilkShape tutorial for how to do bone animations that do mesh deform in DBPro. I have tested this myself and it DOES mesh deform. In DBV1, the model separates, but still animates fine.
