Hi all,

Is there a good software which can convert full scenes 3D Max Corona to Cinema 4D Corona?

Thanks and take care

I'm not a Max user, but I'm pretty sure you cannot convert a native Max file to C4D format, much less the Corona materials. I have used a website to convert a Max model to FBX, so it's sort of possible, but again. No materials. You would have to recreate them in C4D.

Not sure about other formats like Alembic holding materials. In the past, I've used .LWO and .3DS files in C4D and the materials came throuh generally. The colors and some textures come with it, but had to recreate things anyway.

Well color me surprised. I didn't know that plugin existed. I didn't think a third party had access to the native formats.

As far as I know it needs an installed 3DSmax version present.

Well that takes most of the fun out of it. I've had instances where I found the perfect model to purchase, only to find I didn't notice it was Max only. A place like TurboSquid will convert the scene for you, but not create materials. I guess that converter makes sense for someone making the switch from Max to C4D and has both.
