First let me mention, that there is very handy Import Objects...
wizard, which you might find useful. You can find all detailed information about the process of library creation in our on-line reference guide
. For that work-flow, you should have multiple objects stored in one .max file.
In case you want to add models from various .max files, I would suggest you to edit the index.xml
file(s) "manually". Library Browser needs to have a folder structure created with index.xml
file (storing all library information needed) and thumbnails
folder (containing just thumbnail images). This is created by right click on User's Libraries folder and selecting Create Library
The Library Browser can automatically attach grouped objects into a single mesh & create a Multi/Sub-Object material by defining the "object" tag in a following way: <object>*</object>
Please feel free to check our "Creating Libraries
" tutorial covering this topic in detail.
