3D scene objects

  • #1, by NigecWednesday, 12. July 2017, 13:41 3 years ago
    In V5 there is a 3D object field in scenes.. does this actually work?
    I tested my object as a character and it does work, well in the preview the texture is screwed up but "in Game" its correct
    but as an object nothing shows

    With it working as a character I don't want to mess about for hours exporting objects from other modelers to see if its that

    Only Spine is currently working there.

    sollte im Editor ggf. umbenannt werden, solange nur spine Dateien dort möglich sind... Verwirrt nur sonst den Nutzer.

    oh... ok,  I'm not going to fork out more money for software when I have sh*t loads of software that does 3D bones animation anyway
    I just wanted to add a few 3D static objects that can be interacted with, I could use character but I have to create a selectable area and its hard work placing them

    I agree Sebastian.. if I hadn't of tried it as a character first I could of been messing about for hours trying to figure out why nothing was showing

    @ Nige: you could try DragonBones. It's free & you can supposedly export Spine models from it.

    http://dragonbones.com

    Quick note: Spine, DragonBones, Spriter, etc are sprite part animation applications & have nothing to do with 3D. They are for 2D animation, but do allow you to create joints/bones to chain together multiple image layers.

    P.S: another member on here explained in a thread the other month how to export Spine format from DragonBones, if I remember correctly. Then again, not really sure if it will be all that much use to you as I'm guessing you was wanting something you could rotate/manipulate & use for generating projected shadows?

    yeh basically I wanted to do a hidden object scene, 3D with shadows would be an advantage
    I see no reference to import 3D objects into DragonBones

    Its not that important .. it just looked a posible cool feature, I really don't think I want to learn more software

    DragonBones is a 2D sprite part animation tool mate. Think sprite sheets that animators used to use years ago.

    But sprite part is a bit different as they use static image of characters facing different directions that have been split into layers based on each of the characters body parts; arm, forearm, hands, fingers, eyes, head, torso, leg, etc, so that they can be added to various joints/bones & manipulated like you would rig up a character in a 3D application with bones.

    yeah I know how it works wink, looks really cool but I don't think I'll be doing 2D animation anytime soon
    I'm clutching straws and lack motivation so "easy" is the order of the day lol and after a scary long time playing with computers learning more sh*t isn't my idea of fun.. I'd rather learn a bit of lua in context

    haha. That's my same thoughts in regards to learning any of the C languages. I'm not getting any younger & those languages take a while to learn & probably require a decent memory, which is something I'm lacking in. Now what was I just saying...
