News / Re: Version 1.22 has been released!

Just about the camera , it's very easy ,
you can parent a bone with two joints to the camera , bake the camera animation on top of it  and export it with ogreMax
then , you can use the bone to orient the camera , ( the first joint for the position , and the second for the orientation ( using lookat)  )
the small issue would be lenses and safe action zone , but it's not a huge problem

personally , since i do all the levels in maya ( or max , or softimage , or blender  ;D) i would not need unity at all
I export everything in obj ( or 3ds) , and I have the  exact same scene in jpct by reading object names in the *.obj

Perhaps the issue comes from the model ?
what is the polycount ? does it contains more than 4 sided faces , or things like that ?

if you need to load a single object from your 3ds file , maybe a loop is not that usefull ,
as it was already said in an earlier post , have you tried Object3D.mergeAll ?

Code: [Select]
Object3D o = Object3D.mergeAll(loadModel("res/" + thingName + ".3ds", thingScale); );

Exporting from a 3D package to Bones  works really fine using 3Dsmax and Ogre max , and Maya , using DAE_FBX ,
but , as i really like to work with Softimage , i was wondering if anybody have succesfully exported characters using Mod tool and Softimage for instance
if yes , what exporters are you using , how are the rigs , etc...

I had some problems converting from a collada file, however. The first animated frame in a loop does not display corretly
possibly an issue with exporter.

I got no such problem in Maya , but OgreMax is quite a time savior anyway ^^

Ok , i did'nt thad the the latest Bones version , so i updated and continuing to test  :)

Don't know if it's of any help for anybody , but i found out that maybe some export problems
are coming not from the exporters , but from the character rigs.

On ,  i found a lot of skeletons with controls inside the bone hierarchy ,
This could be an issue when exporting animation , because the controllers would potentially not be recognised
as bones by  the exporter , while being inside a bone hierarchy , and it would result in breaking bone hierarchy at export.

In ogreMax Xsi , i had several exported controllers set at origin ...

So I think it's a good idea to have the controllers outside the skeleton , controlling it using constraints.
Before export , you can use any utility to bake constraints into animation curves on the bones
( select the bones hierarchy , and go in edit/keys/bake simulation in maya , or plot animation in softimage )
and then , remove everything , but the bones and the meshes before export

Hello again ! , so , i don't think i did it right , but :

Code: [Select]
skinnedGroup  = loadDAE(filename);
skinnedGroup1 = loadDAE(filename);

gives :
Code: [Select]
Exeption in thread "main" java.lang.NUllPointerExeption

i'm wondering if somebody knows how to implement several animation clips into a single *.dae file , using 3dsmax , or maya
because it could be very tedious to import and serialize each and every animation using a file loader  :-\
