I am loosing some sanity here trying to import an FBX (which is exported from MAX) to alter it and then export it as an FBX again but having exactly the same names on nodes.
I seem impossible to do this due to the naming convertion that fbx does on import.

Does anyone here happen to know how to export clean names. I find this totaly dumb.

Thanks

Did you try using Crosswalk?

thanks for reply.
Well, crosswalk is the only possible way to import the FBX in a ny case, so yes I've tried useing crossw. :p
The problem is that is changes the names on import and on exporting the FBX

It's highly unrecommended by Autodesk, but wouldn't it be possible to export the FBX from Softimage as an ASCII and edit the names by hand. BTW I have no idea, how complex this would be and again: it's officially unrecommended by Autodesk, but maybe as a last option?
Probably a silly idea, so proceed at own risk... ;)

Exactly, the Crosswalk plugin for Max. That's why I provided the link for download.

If you have only an FBX file and not the original 3DSMax file, then I think you don't have any other solution but to rename it manually.
Is that what you were trying to say?
