This isn't a game question, but it is directx related, so think this is the best place to ask.
I'm just wondering, how difficult would it be to display an animation that was made by 3D studio Max.
When you make an animation in 3DSMAX, I believe you can save it as a .x file. How difficult would it be to display this animation in a window (not fullscreen) by using DirectX, and if possible, just put some text in front of it.
What I'm trying to make is something like the about box from winamp. But at first not as fancy. Just the menu on top and the animation below. No reaction to the music as winamp does and stuff like that.
I don't know anithing about 3D programming in directx. I know some DirectDraw and DirectShow.
But I don't need it finished tomorrow, I have time.
