This utility will read in a Realwave (RW) simulated in Realflow.

In Realflow's Export Central, choose to export surface deformation (.bin) to the /meshes folder for the Realwave Mesh. Simulate. Run 'Realwave Loader' utility in Max. Select any file from the sequence. It defaults to load range starting with file selected to end of file sequence. It also has options to load all of the sequence or any subset of the sequence you choose. It will create an animated editable mesh and set keys for frame range you chose beginning at the current frame in Max's timeline.

Additional Info: 

Go to the Utilities Tab (hammer icon), click MAXscript button, run scripted utility .ms file from here if you haven't already, look in the Utilities drop-down for 'Realwave Loader' and select it. This will bring up the rollout and you can use as described above. Once a Realwave is loaded in, there is no dependency on this utility. The displayed RW info will be held in memory until you close the utility or Max

NOTE: You can also choose to have any script run automatically by placing the in the Scripts/Startup folder located in Max's install directory.
