    A friend showed me this cool app that can pull whatever is drawn on screen and dump it in a 3D file that can be opened in max/maya:

    Been using it too look at the cars in GRID and will probably get Burnout for PC to look at their cars. Awesome tool for learning how stuff was made in a PC game :)

    What? That sounds ridiculously unreal.
    I'll check if I can find a video example of it though.

    Basically what it is doing is exporting the frame buffer to a special 3D format. Its really fun to play with and see how people make their games :)

    Downloaded the burnout PC demo and ripped out the demo car... might have to get the full game to study the other cars :)

    Roughly 18,000 triangles:

    I can post the max file if anyone is interested in studying it.

    What kind of car is that supposed to be? The front is Pontiac, but the roof looks just like early seventies Cuda. I would guess a quarter or more of those polys are in the front grill:p

    Hey, I'm interested! I wanna import it in TM.
    Can you give it to me please? I've got 3ds max 2009, so I can't import .3dr files...
    Thanks
    Cya
