Version 0.5 of the standalone build of fbxtomdl is now released
This release incorporates the fixes from qmdl v5 and so creates .mdl files which are better compatible with Winquake. Also please note the feature from v0.4 which was not previously highlighted; the -g switch allows you to group ranges of frames, e.g. “fbxtomdl.exe -g 1-6,33-40,50-53”.
Fixes to several deficiencies in the Mdl saving code causing issues with Winquake:
- Onseam flag uses the value 32 instead of 1 to prevent visual corruption
- Added helper functions to correct bbox_max and bbox_min values for frame to prevent a crash in winquake
- added recalculate_header function to calculate correct values for boundingradius and average_size fields, improving rendering in winquake
The helper object has been enhanced to automatically run these helper functions on the mdl file before each save.
Version 0.3 of fbxtomdl fixes inaccuracy in conversion of the UV coordinates to mdl format. It also upgrades the code to be compatible with the latest version of the fbx python library (2015.1).
