If I purchase a 3d object from a third party vendor, what file type is supported by motion 4 (i.e. .max or .obj)? I need to make a livingroom scene and have to get a 3d couch. Please let me know, Thanks!
Well I'll be darned - right you are, Stephen, I did not know that. However, I cannot get it to import any Cinema4D scene I create, even if exported as a different format. I suspect it does not support version 11.5, and I don't see a way to save as an older version. Nice to know, though - would be interesting if anyone has had any success with this.

Steve is correct. You can import lots of different file formats via pro Animator. I have done it before. Motion however does not support import of 3d Files. get the plugin form Zaxwerks. Load the plugin Pro animator then select new project and use OBJECT menu then at the bottom select import 3d object.
