Import Project from MAX to Realflow -> Cannot move or rotate Object

Hello community,

first of all: I´m quite new to Realflow. I´m a student in media and I´m currently trying to get used to the program. My first problem is: Everytime I export a project from 3ds max via "SD File Export" and import it into Realflow I´m not able to move or rotate my object. I guess it has something to do with the red disk in the nodes which says "Node read and write from disk is disabled". Additionally I´m getting the warning: Node Hauptkörpe data export is enabled but none of its resources is checked on Export Central.

I´ve already googled for it but I´ve only found topics about exporting from Realflow with the wrong settings which might cause that problem but I´m importing and not exporting or am I wrong?

Thanks for your help!

Greetings,

Soluna

Hi

no, none of these warnings have something to do with the fact that you cannot move or rotate the imported object. Every imported object from SD-files is initially locked, because these object may contain animation information from your host application (baked animation).
So go to the node settings of your imported object and click "SD <--> curve" button. This releases the object from pre-recorded animation and you can start moving it.
