Blender rig exporter/animation importer


#334

I’ve added a note to the script’s original message here that should fix your issue: Blender rig exporter/animation importer


#335

Awesome man! I suggest that you make a separate dev post and link it since it is an entirely new process on its own. This is going to help out a lot of developers with their games!


#336

This is a really great plugin, however I would like to add a Keyframe at the End of the animation and I am finding a difficulty to find out how to get the Time of the last frame of the animation as to input it in your Add named keyframe option. Thanks.


#337

Figured out I can get the length of an animation through blender.


#338

Are we gonna get any info on mocap sometime in the future? :frowning:


#339

Actually, I believe that’s doable right now.
I recall one of the game jam developers had a portal mocap device. I’m pretty sure you motion capture yourself in a third party program, and export your created animation to Roblox. He was able to do it overnight, so I’m sure it’s not a long process.

Hello!

I’ve started having an issue with importing models from Studio. Previously, I’ve been able to rebuild a rig and all of its parts are gray (minus LowerTorso). Now they are all green. In pose mode, I’ve been able to move any rig part using G but now I can only select LowerTorso and move only that. I can still rotate any rig part but only on a certain axis, for example I can’t move RightLowerArm 90* to the right.

I’ve tried using 2.78 and 2.79 Blender to combat this but both have the same issue. It started today.

Any advice?

It sounds like you’ve enabled center point manipulation accidentally:


#342

This was unfortunatly not the issue; I am still unable to move the RigPart using the G shortcut. When I disable center point manipulation, nothing moves or rotates.


#343

This week or the next, i will publish a new dev post regarding usage of HTC vive and Brekel.


#344

Can you try importing the rig into a completely fresh Blender file? It still sounds like some configuration issue — if it persists even in a new file, please upload that file somewhere so I can check it out.

I have updated the addon to be fully compatible with Blender 2.80 now, see the first post. Everything is cross-compatible with 2.79.

Do note that due to various UI changes in Blender, I decided to simply move the UI of the addon from the left panel (which is now just a toolbox of icons, typically), to the right panel for the time being.

Because the right panel does not have tabs like the left panel did, this generally leads to useless UI clutter when you’re not working on animations on Roblox rigs. As a result, I’ve decided to make this panel only show when you’ve imported some rig data through the File -> Import menu (which imports the obj file like it did before):

Additionally it’s probably worth mentioning that the Blender animation UI is slightly changed. The keying set selector has been moved, for example:

Finally, I’ve added the MIT license to the code now for clarity. Also updated the tiny quickstart guide in the first post with this slightly different workflow.

Can’t wait to give this a try, thanks again Den_S!


#347

If only there was a way to port Roblox animations in to Blender…


#348

Been saying that for years now :joy:


#349

There is


#350

How?
