FAQ

  1. Why can’t I re-install the new version of D5 Converter? (When it updates automatically or you re-install the new version manually.)

Close 3Ds Max, then run the D5CCleanUpTool.exe to clean the older installed files of specific Max’s version automatically. After that, run the 3Ds Max as Administrator and install the new version of D5 Converter.


  1. Why can’t I install the D5 Converter for 3Ds Max 2021?

Close 3Ds Max, then run FirstRunForMax2021.exe to set the compatible environment value for D5 Converter.


  1. Why some objects in exported .d5a file are with wrong position? Because the mesh in exported .d5a file is with format FBX, some transform matrix of modifier can’t be attached within FBX.

There are two ways could solve this problem:

a) Use the version 2020 of 3Ds Max.

b) Select the wrong position objects, and ungroup the groups which are
containing the wrong position objects. Then, go to ‘Utilities’ and find ‘Reset XForm’, click ‘Reset Selected’. Do export again.

  1. How to export the scene with Corona Render?

a) Install V-ray for 3Ds Max, select all objects of scene and right click, select
the ‘V-Ray scene converter’. It can convert Corona materials to V-ray materials, then do export. (Limitation: the CoronaBitmap can’t be converted.)

b) Any scripts that could convert Corona materials to V-ray materials perfectly, then do export.
