As you can see in the title, my 3ds max version is 8. Ok so i'm importing the npelican model from hugeass, animating a flight path, and exporting with CAD's thing. When I try to build with tool *tool animations levels\test\bloodgulch\npelican*, I get this error:

### 1.jmw
### ERROR reached end of file during parse.
### ERROR too many nodes in actor.
failed to parse jma

model animation compression saved 0 bytes

I'm following MattDratt's yt tutorial on this whole thing, and everything is fine except for this. Also i'm not sure if it's important, but when I export the animation, it plays it and always freezes about 80 frames before the end, then says done. Any thoughts?

Move to a 64bit version of 3dsmax, it sounds like it's running out of memory. max 8 is 32bit, 32bit means only 2-4gb of memory is accessable. Or try waiting to see if it responds after a few minutes.

Unexpected end of file means the exporter never finished writing all the animation data to the file.

In the end I just decided to get gmax. (am I crazy? lol) anyways, i'm just planning on doing animations, so. I got everything working fine in gmax, just trying to figure out how to use it better. I already made a test animation, and no errors in sight, so that's good.

Also, if I HAD to get 3ds max, would version 9 work as 64-bit? If not, do you know which versions would? Thanks for the help so far btw
