Blender Animation Import Not Working

Postby Benton » 12 Sep 2011, 18:39

Hey all,

I have created an animated object inside Blender 2.59. I created an action called "Wave". It is a simple bone animation.

I exported the model into DAE. I then imported the DAE into ShiVa (1.9.1 Beta 1) twice - once as a model without animation, and once as an AnimClip. I created an AnimBank and assigned it to the model. Then, I put the AnimClip into the AnimBank and played it. It did nothing. ShiVa shows the key range is 0-0, which it is not, and the AnimClip editor shows the AnimClip has nothing in it. What am I doing wrong?

Dunno how you use blender but you're blender file you've post can't work.
The animation isn't working in blender too ;)

You need to respect some basic thing.
-> root bone
-> apply all transformation before export

Hmm, it works for me in Blender :P

I am just wondering how you do animations in Blender. I created some actions, which are edited in the action editor.

And how do importing animations into ShiVa work?

Maybe you could send me an animated Blender file that works with ShiVa? Or even a video of you making one? If you could that would just be awesome! 8)

Thanks,
Benton

Never mind, I got it working using Ultimate Unwrap 3D. It turns out Blender's DAE exporter does not work well. The model I exported from Blender in a DAE format was deformed, and it did not have any animations in Ultimate Unwrap 3D. But exporting the model into FBX and bringing it into Ultimate Unwrap 3D was perfect. I then exported the model from Ultimate Unwrap 3D into DAE and the model is animating perfectly inside ShiVa. I highly recommend Ultimate Unwrap 3D.

I also had problems with Blender's DAE export. I had to export as FBX, then use Autodesk's convertor.
