Hi,

Thank you very much for your super useful addon. A really admirable work.

I’m testing it in Blender 2.8 and when export to Unity the object appears there with a 180 degree rotation on the x-axis

I am using the Blender version of today June 20, and trying with Unity 5.6 and 2019.1.5 with the same issue.

Is it something I do wrong or is it an export bug?

Thank you very much!

Hello, everyone!
I have bad news - “Export to FBX” still non stable for 2.8. Apply Rotation works incorrect.

Blender 2.8 still has bug with apply rotation for objects with Parent-Child Relations. I hope this will be fixed soon.

Stay Tuned!

I noticed this indeed!

Question regarding SubstancePainter Exploding “Bake by meshname” usage;

  • when I use the batch rename option using your script it renames it;
    EXAMPLE_high.001
    EXAMPLE_high.002
    what Substance Painter requires is the numbering BEFORE the _high appendix. Is this possible currently ? i.e.
    EXAMPLE_001_high
    EXAMPLE_002_high

You can use follow steps:

  1. add postfix “_high” -> EXAMPLE_high.001_high
  2. use “Replace” for delete a specific string. For this “New Text:” field must be empty:
  • Old Text: “high.”
  • New Text: “”

Result: EXAMPLE_001_high

It’s very easy for use!

Hello mrven,

First of all thank you for the great add-on. One questions/requests regarding the add-on.

Would it be possible to add an option to remove all the materials from the object when exporting the fbx. Now i am using some materials in blender while modeling that i remove before the export. It would be really handy to be able to remove all the materials during the export process. For example “remove all materials” check box in the “export mode” menu?

Keep up the good work mate :smile:

Hey @mrven , great addon but I’m having an issue importing assets to unreal that were exported using your addon. They scale down about 100 times their original size and not sure if I’m missing a setting or it’s a bug? I’m using the 2.8 version

Is there currently any way to export by collections? … or is this something that will be added in a future update?
What I mean is… somethign like the ‘By Parent’ option but that recognises collections as the parent. currently it doesn’t appear to.

cheers
