Blender Tchat Addon

Hello guys !

I’m very happy to release my very first addon : the Blender Tchat Addon !

The Blender Tchat Addon enables you to :

  1. Create or Join Tchat Rooms and chat all arround the World
  2. Add friends for direct chat
  3. Share Files with rooms and friends
  4. Share ASSETS from Blender to Blender : You send any asset (Mesh, Material, Texture, Particle System, etc) and the others can directly append them right inside their current scene !

A huge work has been done on BGL side : Overlays, Drag and Scale, Hovering, Scrollbars, Profile Pictures, and much more ! The networking is all HTTPS based.

A lot of new features are being developed but … One day it’s time to release ! So today I try to fix a V-1.0.0 to share it with you…

I just created a room named “Blender Tchat Addon” for you guys, feel free to join and give it a try !
ROOM ID : aabemflflx

Don’t hesitate to share, and ENJOY ! :smiley:

Nota Bene : Please note that the Tchat Addon is only compatible with 2.83 and higher.
(Last features tested under 2.83.4)

Indeed, since 2.83 there is an issue with Color Management influencing BGL shaders, that I reported here : https://developer.blender.org/T79788
According to devs, the current fix is to hard code the GLSL code for GPU shaders, with a new function blender_srgb_to_framebuffer_space() but it breaks retrocompat with 2.82 and previous.

Once it’s fixed I should be able to deliver a version compatible with all 2.8X versions

Stay tuned ! :slight_smile:

For those who have Tchat, could you check if you see my room where I share a model. It’s an organic model, kinda fractal, textured. Let me know how that goes, so I can write about it in my article. The room is called New_Media_Supply and you can access it as shown in next message from developer with this ID: qwppp7df71 . This is the model and you can have it for free:

Article made and posted on Twitter as well:

Hello and thanks for your article on your website !

For now, all rooms are private and therefore knowing the name is no use. People need the ROOM ID to be able to join, as explained in the Documentation. You can copy the ROOM ID with this button :

And share it here. Then people can copy and paste it joining a new room :
