Thank God!

Ok, here is a new update for my exporter.

There are several new features since V1.1.
Here are the most important:

-Any texture, which is restricted to polygons will be exported as separate surface now. This makes level design and especially creating of lightmaps much easier.

-Multitexturing is now supported also.

-Via Vertex Maps it is now possible to set vertex alpha / color

-All polygons are disconnected automatically by default now, to ensure correct texture mapping all the time.

Here is a small demo which shows some of the new features:

Hi BigBug,

is it possible to get a plugin for V9.6?
Thanks for your continued support for Blitz<->C4D! :)

BIG BUG(Posted 2007) [#10]
It should work with V9.6 too. The examples however are made with R10 but can be used with the demo version.

no animation?

North(Posted 2007) [#12]
Weird - the plug didn't show up in the list.... i'll check this more thouroughly.

Thanks Big B!

BIG BUG(Posted 2007) [#13]
Animation works with all the versions, but bones are restricted to Vertex Weights. Claude Bonet from Mocca or Vertex Maps from R10 aren't supported.

The plugin should be located within the regular "Plugins" menu. Maybe you just looked for it in the wrong place?

Hey, we try to use this plugin in Cinema4D R16, but we get:

(118) Variable or function expected
File: Export_B3D.COb
Line: 1
Row: ~1

Maybe you are still willing to work on this =)
