3DS Max to Lightflow exporter


AseToLf is a small program that can convert 3DS Max ASE files (ASCII Scene Export) to Lightflow compatible files (Python Module). It is still in an alpha state of development, since only a small part of classes are exported. I am developing this software for my personal use, but i guess it could be useful to someone else, since Lightflow is such a marvellous program and a growing community is appreciating its capabilities.

A Small Sample:

Here is shown what you can do with AseToLf. The left Image shows the raytracing capabilities of Lightflow while the right one emphasizes the beaty of radiosity algorithms: only a line of Python code was added to get it. Cool enough, uh? :)


Here you can download the latest version of Asetolf 0.4.2 (32Kb). Please contact me if you find any bugs, since it's an alpha vesion.

Here you can download the last windows version of AseToLf 0.2.1 (11 Kb)
If something is missing to you (some dll or ocx), then download this full (and huge!) version here full version 0.2.1 (almost 2 Mb).

What's new:

0.4.2 (23-11-00)
  -Improved error handling
  -Minor speed improvement
  -Minor bug fixes

Work in progress:

C version of AseToLf is complete. Now it can handle MUCH bigger files than the previous version and it's also MUCH faster.
Here is an example of a 74172 faces model successfully converted.
