I created a conveyor belt bone animation in blender and converted it in to j3o using the sdk. When I try to play the animation in the scene composer nothing happens. I even baked it and still nothing happened.
This is how it looks in the scene explorer:
This is how it looks in blender:
I already went through the tutorial checklist of “Creating assets in Blender 3D” I don’t know how many times.
if im not wrong, in NLA it should be only under Armature, not Vertex Group(but well i might be wrong)
this dont help me much to know the reason tho. But maybe someone else will know.
But, just to tell you, .Blend(because each version have different api) and .ogre(because deprecated kind of) exporters are very unstable. Current stable exporters are .obj / .gltf as example.
Maybe its because SDK 3.2.4 is compatible with Blender 2.8+ only? idk.
What i can tell you is rather some information. Myself i had issues with .blend exporter before, because it often break on different blender versions(because blender each version can change it).
So i can just suggest use .obj(static models) and .gltf(animated models) and using Blender 2.8+.
This seems stable and GLTF is new game export standard
Blender 2.8+ → export → gltf
SDK → second click on GLTF → convert to j3o (or just use gltf format, also possible)
i think you could try see link i provided earlier. For me it works very well. Both animations / shape keys and material export. But you also would need to know it export PBR material. so if you want older shader, you would need replace it manually via sdk or code.
One of my first tasks after I get beta2 out the door (eventually) is to move the blend support into its own separate project in jme-contrib. If someone wants to continue maintaining it, create a store page, whatever then they can.
…as a separate project it could also be GPL and resurrect the source code that was deleted.
GLTF worked and I didn’t even have to bake my animations, which was much simpler.
I also didn’t have to apply “all transforms” in Blender.
Also, this is not related to the topic but to the sdk: When I change the .gltf file, the sdk asks me if I also want to update the .j3o file. This always results in an error and I first have to delete the .j3o file and then click on the .gltf file and convert it into .j3o binary once more.
