| I`m thinking of learning Blender 3D but before I start I would like to know how well it integrates with Blitz 3D. Is the plugin that is available able to export models from Blender to Blitz format without any hiccups?|
Overall is Blender a good program to learn, it certainly appears feature rich. What are your experiences of the program if you have used it? Is it very capable?
Thanks for any help,
| I'm not sure about model conversion, but I guess how capable it is will depend on what it is you're planning on doing with it. |
| Thing is, I do not really want to devote lots of time learning it if it doesn`t work that well with .b3d exporting. If it does work well however, then I am very willing to spend my time learning it.|
| Well you'll want the Blender -> .B3D exporter available at THIS SITE, and a search of these forums for the same sorts of things (Blender, export, b3d) will reveal a bunch of threads about its use.|
HERE'S the thread that announced it and followed its progress and use.
| 2nd for that, exporter works great. I have tried it out with both animated characters and large static level bits. |
(just remember to "apply rotation and scaling" to child meshes b4 export or they kind of go wonky)
| Thanks for the links guys, I will go and have a look now. One last question, does the exporter keep vertex weighting info intact? (If it is possible in Blender that is.)|
| Blender also exports to .3ds,.X,and .Md2 with no extra plugins. |
| @quicksilva b3d doesn't support weighting as far as i know. I could be wrong there. Blenders animator supports weights though. |
