?Exporting Questions?

Postby jshug » Thu Oct 30, 2008 5:06 pm

I was trying to figure out how to export my objects after i do hard or soft body sims, back out to lightwave 3d? with a fluid i know its just a mesh but i cant figure it out for an object.

In export central, for each object you have in the scene, you'll see a .obj export option if you open the tree for the object. Select this.

You'll probably need to flip the polys in modeler.

but once i select it and do export all objects, it doesnt save the files in my meshes dir. do i have to do something to say, like with fluid, build meshes, to get it there?

It'll save them in your objects directory, because they're objects, not meshes.

Oh, and you have to simulate at least one frame of the sim for it to write the files.
