Hi,

Does this support smooth groups and multiple UV exports to B2RizomUV ?
Thanks!

B2RUVL works with exact defined channel in case of obj format. But if I change it to fbx it will be possible to work with multiple and smooth ing groups.

Well,do it have a option to export fbx format ?

Can you provide a demonstration video? I want to know if it works correctly.

Thaks!

Hi Bop, I will make demo video soon. And it will be like : for UVLayout it will be using OBJ for RizomUV - FBX. And in future i’m going to add an option - Muliple or work on all UVmaps.
PS: i have to add “to do” list

i add some properties to UVLayout part of the bridge:

  • Surface type SUBD/Poly
  • Mark cut edges in UVLayout automaticly by marked sharp(Hard) edges from Blender. But it works only for single object.

Many thanks!
