Sorry if this has been asked before, but search hates me. I am learning Panda3d from MGF magazine(thanks, Gary), so I wanted to build a simulated Solar system. Make planet(oid)s circle around the Sun or other Planet(oid), rotate them, maybe add Kepler’s Law of motion… Decided on that because of very simple models: spheres.
I “modeled” Earth and exported it using Chicken. In pview it shows just gray screen, but it creates egg. I load egg in simple “show model” program, but still can’t see it. I export it as .x and add it to program, still not there. I use Blender 2.49b, python 2.6.2, Panda3d 1.70 and Windows 7. I can see and use MGF models without any problems. I think I made a mistake somewhere. It won’t even work with the default cube.
After exporting with chicken. My blender cmd shows following:
Known pipe types:
(all display modules loaded.)
:loader(error): Couldn’t load file /d/Panda3D-1.7.egg: does not exist.
Unable to load /d/Panda3D-1.7.egg
:framework(warning): Empty bounding volume for models
You’re loading a file that doesn’t exist. Maybe you’re having some problems with the path you’ve typed. If you post here the files needed (for example link a zip file) we can look at this. However Panda3D-1.7 is a weird name for a sphere.
