Loading Models.
Hi, I have a question about loading models of this engine. I have read through animation tutorial and see it loads a skeleton, anim and mesh files for the current model, I use Milk Shape 3D but I do not really know how to export the models to be able to load them correct.

I exported 1 model from Unreal, now I got 2 files, 1 animation file ( psa ) and one mesh ( psk ).

How do I convert them to .skel .mesh .anim files?

Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks.

Re: Loading Models.
please check documentation
resources\mesh\importing

psa and psk arent supported, you can try to import them via external plugins to max or maya or other, and then export to popular formats described in the doc.

you can try also writing importer by yourself, ive found some info here <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://udn.epicgames.com/Two/BinaryFormatSpecifications.html">http://udn.epicgames.com/Two/BinaryForm ... tions.html</a><!-- m -->

Ok thanks, I have one more question.

I saw that function Bool ImportB3D(..), I can export the model to B3D, can you make an tutorial how to load a model and animate it using that command because they are not documented that well.

Thanks.

Re: Loading Models.
you just need to drag and drop any external format to the Mesh Editor, it will be imported automatically

Re: Loading Models.
How do you set the original Walk, Run, etc animation frames?, Like I want 20-50 as run frames.

Thanks.

Re: Loading Models.

I just have 1 file include all animations, There is no way to just set the key frames for them instead? If not, how can I split the current file?

Thanks.
