i wanted to export a small animation i made with blender like the tutorial, but i can’t.
This is the exporter in the tuto:
and this is my exporter(there is no option for animation):
Did you use the armature modifier to attach the armature to the object?
Did you select your object+armature before exporting?
Did you troubleshoot the Chicken manual about exporting animations?
Well, this is my .blend file so you can test you’re self(it 's a stupide animation, but it’s just for test ).
(1) Go to object mode.
(2) Select the box.
(3) In the Modifiers tab, hit “Make Real”.
Then, it shows up for me in the exporter.
i tested that with this settings:
but i have always the same problem
After doing above steps to the above .blend file, and selecting all objects, the “Add Animation” button appeared in the exporter.
i did all the steps you have mentionned, but i couldn’t add any animation to my model. This the new .blend file: http://maroxe.olympe-network.com/animation.blend
Now you removed the modifier. Select the Cube, hit Add Modifier, Armature, and for “Ob:” type “Armature” (which is the name of your armature). Do not press Apply.
Then if I load up the Chicken exporter, the “Add Animation” button appears.
PS. Keep in mind that Chicken does not export envelopes correctly.
it works now, thanks
but why do i have not to press apply?
oh sorry, i did not read this completely , now know there is many ways to get animation…
Very nice thread, solved my problems instantly
i wanted to export my animation with 3 different meshes(hair, body and clothes), but there is only export the animation an the body.
I selected all of the objects, when I exported! I set shadeless.
