I am a rookie user of Blender, my blender project cannot be exported to 3ds file.

How to solve that?

Error message Object %r can't be written into a 3DS file

This is the link of my project Blender Project 2018


There is a maximum number of faces limit with .3ds files. You might be exceeding this. If possible, consider using the .OBJ format, which doesn't have this limitation. Try removing all but a small part of the model and exporting that to confirm if this is your problem.

If it is not this which is causing the problem, try baking all the modifiers before exporting.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't use After Effects, but you might consider using the .FBX file export format from Blender. There is a free .FBX import plugin for After Effects. .FBX is a good format for 3D files. Good luck. $\endgroup$ – zzubnik Oct 2 '18 at 8:09
