    Strange Measurement Problem... Again.

    Okay... Maybe someone here could help with this one.
    Let's say that someone wants to follow the UDK pre-fixed measurement for some reason.
    So we know that a char is about 96 units height and that 1uus is 1 unit in max and that 1uus = 2cm. So I set my max in 2cm per unit because I prefer to work based on metrics. So far so good.
    So,
    I made a test-cube 5 x 5 x 5 meters and exported it as .ASE.
    When I import it directly into udk it looks as if it is 2,5 meters.
    BUT!...
    If I export the file in .3ds format and reimport it back in MAX and re-export it as ase ... that's when it finally appears as 5 meters in udk...

    Any ideas about what I'm doing wrong here? This drives me nuts.
    I use 3d studio max 10 and the latest udk version.

        ..........
        And from what I notice after further testing...
        After re-exporting the mesh from .3ds to .ase still, the measurement is not right. It appears that the process scales the model 2x for some reason.
        Well I guess that I'm gon'a have to wait for the character-artist to build the main char first and scale the rest of my meshes in comparison to his model.
        Unfortunately I don't see any other way for this to be done right.

          try setting the measurements to generic and your grids 8x8

          don't forget you can scale the character via code if need be
