Morten, those last images, were the ones from Blender via Collada exporter or 3ds exporter?
These sort of smoothing issues can crop up when using some other 3d or CAD apps and exporting.
Here's some interesting base info about the old 3ds format, at Okino
. So it seems it depends on firstly the implementation of the exporter from the 3d app whether they actually convert any internal smoothing into exported smoothing groups and then how the receiving app makes use of smoothing groups to re-triangulate.
dazomatic; I see there's a new version? of Cool3D now released from Corel called MotionStudio 3D. However, it looks like it still has the same limited exporters.
