Issue with conversion to .bones
« on: June 28, 2011, 09:12:26 am »
hi raft,

I am back   :D again.  I got a recent set of deliverables from my artist.  When I tried to convert the .xml files .bones, i got the following exception.  Any idea what's going wrong?

looking at the code, a MeshChannel is tried to be created out of zero PoseFrame's. in other words, an empty pose animation is exported by exporter.

my artist has tried couple other things.  But still same problem is occurring.   :(
Only difference is that this time the exception is thrown after the skeletal-animation has been generated.  He said that he followed the following threads to do the correction; but no luck.

I've mailed you the .mesh and .skeleton files.  Can you please have a look at them and let me know what is going wrong?  :-[

hi raft, we kinda solved the problem. :)
My artist was trying to use two different materials for the different portions of the same mesh and that was causing the exporter to generate an empty clip.  So we got around the problem by using same material for the entire mesh.

Thanks for the support  :D

i'm glad you've solved it :) as you have noticed there is an empty pose track in mesh file which causes the trouble.

Code: [Select]
<track target="submesh" index="3" type="pose">
    <keyframes />
</track>

there is no need to crash import process for that. i skip such empty tracks and print a warning. please re-download the zip
