Hi nedelman,

Is there a known issue with the exporter help documentation ? I can't get it to display within Maya and 3ds Max. It's surely no big deal as there's also online version but could be nice to have it next to the scene.. I've tried on Maya 2013 x64 and 3ds Max 2014 x64 both Win 7 & Student versions.

Thank you for the work, by the way.

Edit : The latest one also fails to export the scene materials. I tried both scene and object materials but it keeps exporting only one of them and I can't figure out the error via Log, is there any chance I can grab the previous Exporter which ran fully successfully for me anyway ? :oops:
