I have a question about the md3 plugin. Is there a way to import md3s for modifications or is this just for export. Is an import script available in that case?

there is one for 2.49b, but Blender won't transfer the vertex animation data over to 2.6x, which sux.

Alternately, use either Misfit Model 3D or Noesis to export in something that Blender likes. You can get the mesh that way, but again, it looses the vertex animation data.

What do you mean it looses vertex animation data? I import md3s that way all the time, the animation is stored in shapekeys. Is there more to the animation that I'm losing?

I imported the quake Ogre from a variety of sources as an MD3 and one or two other formats. The model was animated when it came into Blender 2.49b, but when it got opened in 2.6x, it was static.

Does the export script work with Blender 2.65?

And another question:
is it normal that I have to activate the plugin everytime I start Blender?

I've had one or two issues here and there with it.
No, That isn't normal.

Having said that, I just tested it and it loaded the plugin on launch and successfully exported a game model with textures and animations.
I tried it on one of my production meshes and it exported empty air. The model has to be UV'd and be triangulated.

I've not tested if the script recognises the new triangulate and decimate modifiers. Would be cool if it does.

When you've done your modification(s) of settings, you have to save them, so you don't need to set it up again on each restart :dukecry:

When set, at the bottom of the settings window, there's a button to save the settings.

(Bump)

Any update planned for Blender 2.67b?

Some import script? ;)

yeah, importing models would be nice.

I'm so distant from this script and blender and python. I won't make an importer in the foreseeable future. I'm good for an update or two though, any bugs with the latest blender? I have yet to use it.

Added:
I grabbed 2.67b and did some quick tests, all seemed well, I didn't push it too far though. Just the basic cube exported to md3 and then opened with npherno. Back to slab 6 ;)

Thank you, appreciated! ;)

If I link you a very old MD3 import script, would you be able to modify it so it works under the current Blender builds?

In the meantime if you've got Blender 2.49 installed you can use the importer here. Please note that your animations will be a bunch of shape keys, so there isn't much application for use of that beyond re-uvmapping, sculpting, or using as reference for a new mesh.

You are welcome, and no, sorry but I have that script myself and I also do as leilei says. Once you've made an md3 all you really have left is shape keys. I can't really make an importer that does any better than this. However, I do agree, it can and should be updated to work with current builds, just I'm not there right now, I had to re-install npherno & blender just to run that test last night. I don't even have python on my rig anymore. No idle gui here :P

It is not urgent, it's already fine to have an answer that quickly ;)

Take care

So much for my plans with slab 6, I blendered a Star Trek Tri-Dimensional Chess Board today. My daughter and I have been getting into "normal" chess, then she see's this on one of her disney shows, I immediately recognized it. I started this just as a template for a real board, but now I think I may just be able to make a game of this someday ;)

Slight thing that may be a good thing to fix. I was doing a tut for the guys over on QuakeOne and noticed that the exporter fills in your blend file name as the name of the MD3 file. Thing is, that it also fills in the extension of your MD3 file as '.blend' which will overwrite your original blend file. I've always just changed it, but new users may have 'issues' with this. Just an idea for a future revision.

Great work on the exporter, it rocks and makes modding Duke possible! Thank you!!!!

Thanks man.

I guess it may be due for an update after all. I can't believe how long I've been bummin' around here now, this thread is going on 2 years old lol

Blenders at 2.7, wow. I just downloaded it. I've had my head buried into C++ lately :no:

Added: Oh yeah within the hour ;)

New Update for 2.7 no more accidental .blend overwrites. Filename is now blank on default.
Attached File  io_export_md3.zip (7.42K)
Number of downloads: 227
Added to first post also.

Why not change the thread title to Blender 2.7 MD3 Export Script? http://forums.duke4.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

Slightly off-topic, but Drek, your exporter works with 'real' (Quake 3, Cube engine) md3's with tags. You have to parent an empty to the bone in question and name it "tag_nameoftag" i.e.: "tag_wrist". Just thought you would like to know that - also anyone thinking of supporting it in eduke.

Yes, I know about md3 tags, not too sure how useful they would in Eduke32. Then again, I don't quite understand exactly how ID used them in Quake, I've never bothered to look. How can we benefit from tagging an empty?

from in the zip, the folder "io_scene_md3" goes to "Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.72\scripts\addons"

then just tick the box in blender > user preferences > addons > import-export > Quake 3 model (.md3)
and save user settings

edit:
I just confirmed with a fresh install of 2.72b

guys, i can see that you can export the Shaders too.

But how can i export it? i mean, i already have the Shaders.

And by the way, you can't export tags in 2.7 md3 exporter. but it fixes when you change the code in the scripts : " scene.set_frame" to "scene.frame_set"

i hope someone will give information that how can i export the SHADERS too

Seems like there is a problem in phyton script.

elif obj.type == 'EMPTY' :# "I think this is all wrong (matrix location)"


when exported.. ALL tags comes back in median point
