3ds export from Blender shows invalid
« on: January 05, 2011, 12:02:23 am »
Blender may have changed their exporter or something, but I can't get a 3ds file to load.  It's just a plane with a transparent .png texture.  It says
ERROR: Not a valid 3DS file!

I had some problem with another model but managed to get it to load although the scaling was completely different from the past.  This one I can't load at all.
It re-imports into Blender.

jPCT can load this without any problems:

Code: [Select]
Loading file grass.3ds
File grass.3ds loaded...300 bytes
Processing new material Material.002!
Texture named grass.png added to TextureManager!
Processing object from 3DS-file: Plane_Materi
Object 'Plane_Materi_jPCT-2' created using 2 polygons and 4 vertices.

Double check that your path and filenames are correct.

It was a naming error.  Sorry for the trouble.
