Yay! New location! Now, I know Mod Tool not the ideal platform for getting models into source, but I just didn't feel comfortable giving out the information that Autodesk wants for the 3DS Max trial, and I can't even come close to affording a license. Anyway, the problem is this: the model I'm trying to import is in .fbx format, which the application says is fully supported. However, every time I try to import it, it gives me this: I checked the log file that it references, and found nothing. Hitting "okay" generates an "Unspecified Error" message. Anything that helps even in the remotest way is much appreciated. It's my first time trying to get a model into source, and I'm getting a bit discouraged. Also, I do apologise if this is in the wrong place.

I think im the only XSI user here so all I can say is modtool is barely supported for most formats, notice you cant even export objs with that version. I usually use 2011 but recently it just stopped working so im forced to deal with mod tools problems. use this program to convert the FBX to something else, like SMD or DAE obj... something http://oasis.xentax.com/index.php?content=downloads
