If I'm not mistaken, it wasn't possible to convert directly from 3ds max to IV so it had to be converted to zmodeler.
A while back I heard they were developing a plugin or something for 3ds max that would allow to convert straight to IV but I'm not sure who did it turn out...

The Plugin is finished, it is for Open IV, but I am also after a tutorial for that to convert cars from 3DS into IV as I do not think one has been made for the plugin which was released a couple weeks ago.

Or was it GIMS, or is GIMS something to do with OpenIV.

Thanks for the video, but I was specifically referring to setting up the dummies and mapping the vehicle correctly for Carcols and the dirt to appear and getting names for the parts correct and such, importing gives you the structure of another vehicle and everything but it is not explained how things get set up correctly or why you set them up that way.

 

I would probably be willing to make a tutorial on how to do it, but I am not sure how to convert the vehicle so making a tutorial on it would be a little bit difficult.
