I have been playing with BM and miniB3D. I bought a static model to use, but it is in Maya 7 (.ma, .mb) formats. Is there any free tool I can use to convert this to something that miniB3D can use?

i could do it for you, just send me an email with the file. otherwise its best if you use uu3d, but for that you still need to have maya to open the file. i think milkshape has a .ma reader.

I was just trying to play around with miniB3D. At this point, I would like to try and get some rendered images of the model, with the background transparent, so that I could use it in a 2d game for my granddaughter.
