    your best option would be to get the swift plugin for 3dsmax http://www.erain.com/

    it is not free, and i'm pretty sure theres not a free option. one approach though would be to save it as a quicktime movie and import that into flash

    maybe off topic, but...considering the price tag that a full version of 3D Studio Max has, the price of the plugin is really peanuts...

    You could export it as a 3D Shockwave object. The Max plugin to export as 3D Shockwave objects is free at the macromedia site.

    You could try Plasma which makes SWF files. [img]images/smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    discreet makes that program btw. You export to .mov and then to .swf.
