The new avatar importer gave us access to some cool new api for importing fbx files. I spend a lot more time importing normal meshes compared to custom characters, so I’ve modified the avatar importer to work as a normal mesh importer. This has sped up my workflow a huge amount, so I thought it might be useful to some of you as well
This plugin (when clicked) will simply open a window where you can find and select the mesh you want to import. Once you click okay, it will import it into studio and place it in workspace.
You can get the plugin here, or if you want to view the code/publish it manually you can get that here. I’ve added very little of my own code, it’s mostly the remnants from the avatar importer plugin.
You can see how quick it makes importing a reasonably complex mesh:
I hope some of you find this useful!
