However when I go to Mixamo I don’t see that particular model listed anywhere. So my first question is: how can I find an animated version of this model off of Mixamo, or anywhere else? Also, how can I obtain a list of all the available animations on this model?
I tried downloading the un-animated model directly off of CadNav (first link) but my browser downloaded a prontovideoconverter_1.0.29-2.safariextz file and I have no idea how to load it with assetManager.loadModel(...)… any ideas? Thanks in advance!
CadNav models are not available in mixamo you need to upload them to Mixamo yourself then mixamo will rig and animate it for you. Are you sure you watched part 1 and part 2 of my tutorial ?
in part2 i upload the model to mixamo and animate it .
If you do not have 3ds max you can not use models from CadNav. So I suggest you to use Mixamo’s free human models instead and download them in .fbx or .dae format and import them directly to blender then save as .blend format and convert it to .j3o. i showed those steps in part3 of my tutorial.
Unzip it inside your Models directory to have textures import correctly. so the directory path should look like: assets\Models\Models\Players\Jo Sang\cadnav.com_model\Jo Sang
Edit2: If you are new to JME and you are in your learning path and just want to test and learn how to work with animated models in JME i highly recommend to use simple animated models which are available in jme3-test-data.jar .
and do not use complex models from cadnav or mixamo.
Hi @Ali_RS - quick question! I am (obviously) brand new to Blender. When I open it up, there is a cube rendered at the origin (0,0,0). I am trying to figure out how to remove it.
I am on a Mac laptop. According to Google, I can remove it by:
Selecting the cube by clicking on it
Issuing a “RMB” (Right Mouse Button) click
Entering the “X” key
Selecting the “Delete” option from the subsequent popup
So I click on the cube, then I press & hold the Control key on my keyboard, and then I click the mouse pad (this is the Mac laptop equivalent as a right-click with an actual mouse). I then press “X” and see the “Delete” popup. I select the “Delete” option, but nothing happens!!!
It is important for me to do this because I have already downloaded all my animated models from Mixamo and now I am trying to load the first one into Blender, but the cube is drawn “over” most of my model!
Thanks @Ali_RS, your screen shot is proving to be very helpful here!
I am in “Object Mode”, however when I click on the cube, I do not see its borders outline in orange.
All I see is the bullseye/target, but the cube is definitely not actually selected. In your screenshot, once you clicked the cube it surrounded the cube in a thin orange border - mine does not. Any ideas here?
I’m using Mixamo’s “Big Vegas” (Elvis) character with ~10 or so animations in a dummy game I’m making, just to get used to jME and gamedev.
Also, +1 to the idea of jME maintaining its own Model Repo, whether its free, for-pay, or both. I think it will help foster much better adoption for newcomers who have previous programming/JVM experience, but who are totally clueless + inept on the art side of gamedev.
As long as it was reasonably priced/licensed, I would pay to have all my models rigged & animated for me, so I could just “drag n’ drop” them into my jME game, and spend my time focussing on the code!
Do you know what’s going on here? Should I proceed forward without the “!EXPERIMENTAL! Apply transform” checked? Is there something else I can do to get “!EXPERIMENTAL! Apply transform” working? I’m on a Mac 10.10.5 if that helps…please advise!
If it works OK , then simply ignore !EXPERIMENTAL! Apply transform. I think there will be no problem so nothing to worry.
and continue the rest of steps normally.
thanks so so much that you informed me about this.
And if any problem occurs in any of steps please let me know about the issue.
Hi @Ali_RS I’m running into all sorts of problems with my model and quite frankly I’m running out of time! I think your tutorials are excellent however I think there’s just something advanced+technical that I’ve overlooked or that was different with my Mixamo model to begin with.
I just want to start playing around with jME3! Do you know of any j3o models that are already rigged + animated that will just magically load into my jME3 app? I just need something that looks human-like and can do a few various useful animations (idle, punch, kick, jump, etc.) but at this point I won’t be picky! Thanks for any-and-all-help here!
