I didn't see anything like this posted before, and I know some of this stuff won't work with GR:AW, but it might help someone get started with something and eventually work their way into GR:AW.

just a quick question... say I modeled something in google sketchup, would I be able to send it to someone with 3dmax 7 and have them convert it to the right file in GRAW for me???

It depends on if the Google Sketchup exports into a file format that 3D Max 7 will understand.

If it does export into a format that Max 7 understand, it will most certainly work.

The only way to know is to give it a shot and then let us all know if it does or doesn't work. :)

yes but:

1) remember to give him the material.xml

2) there are a few things to set up (hierarchy linkings, materials, dummies,etc..) and I'm not sure sketchup can handle them all (maybe only materials)
