Making models in blender

Postby Mama's Boy » June 26th, 2009, 6:58 pm

My md3 exporting script is working well, but I am having terrible luck with two things: 1. The texture 2. Exporting the animations. I have read countless guides, but none of them seem to help. Blender is a complex program, so I might have done something wrong. Would someone care to take a look at it? If you do, can you please reccomend a virus free uploading site :D ? Thanks.

animations, are defined between two frame points, ie, jump could be frames 22-30

for textures, you'd have to UV map the model, and apply the texture(s) correctly to said UV map,
you can easily google some tutorials on doing this
This is not a url, clicking it is pointless

But there are so many ways to unwrap the texture map. How would you know which one to use?

Have you tried this tutorial? It really helped my webdesigner for my previous project learn how to make models haha.

Take care.

That's the one I'm currently using. I know how to work blender, but I just can't get those md3s to work in sandbox!

Actually, the shape is in sandbox, only with that Image no texture image. I have the skin in the folder. Could there be something wrong with the md3.cfg?

Mike,

Could not follow the tutorial (old - as I have blender 2.45 installed) with the link to the md3 export script.

Downloaded the script and read the readme file. It mentions "you must load md3_export.py in blender's text editor and run the script". Here is where I get stuck.

The "py" file mentioned is included in the archive, but no instructions as to how to access the text editor within blender or how to run the script.

I have not used blender, even though it is installed, I have not had a reason to use it until now.

Sorry if this problem seems too basic for you guys, but that is where I am at the moment.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Regards

J
May your journey be free of incident.

Live long and prosper.

It is a bit of a tricky problem. For me I put the md3 py stuff into the scripts folder and I was able to access it from there. If you're on windows it likes to put it into a hidden folder. I haven't used any text editor stuff to get it working, just needed to put the files in the right place. Are you on windows or linux? Take care.

EDIT here is my path to it on Windows:
Blender Foundation\Blender\.blender\scripts
