Dear 3ds Max Gurus,

I am a novice 3ds Max 8 user and kindly asking expert advise;

I have simulation program calculating 3D path for an object as a function of time.
I can change the data format to any format and units if required (ASCII, binary, comma separated, degree, radian etc).

The path data consist of a record of [time, x,y,z position roll,pitch,roll angles] for each animation frame. For example if the animation consists of 1000 frames, then I will have 1000 records in my data file as shown below

[time, x,y,z, roll,pitch,roll]
1, 0,0,0, 0,0,0
2, 0,0,0, 0,0,0
1000, 0,0,0, 0,0,0

HOW can I load an external data file to define the path for my 3ds object?
I appreciate if you can point to any tutorial and/or demo .

Thank you,
