3DC Export to 3DS Max maintaining smoothing?

3DC and 3DS use different systems for smoothing/creasing. So, 3DS can’t import 3DC creasing. I store the actual normals for each point, where they store ‘smoothing groups’. At least that’s how I understand it.

In my opinion 3DC’ method is more flexible. <!– s:-) –><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":-)" title="Smile" /><!– s:-) –>

This is a bit of a MAX/3DC question,

Is it possible to export a model from 3DC in .3ds format and maintain the smoothing? e.g. max will apply smoothing groups accordingly once imported?
