Stop Motion OBJ (OBJ, STL, PLY sequence importer) - v2.1.1

Hi @neverhood311
It worked. I had a problem while exporting files. My python script was skipping mesh geometry while batch export from Rhino.
Thanks for quick response anyway :slight_smile:
You made an amazing plugin !

I am trying Stop Motion OBJ addon v2.1.0 with Blender v2.92.0. I tried with horse_gallop example obj files and my own set of obj files to import and play a sequence of obj files. On following the steps given in the Quick Start Tutorial in https://github.com/neverhood311/Stop-motion-OBJ

, I am getting the error shown in attachment. Can you please help me resolve the issue? Note that the obj files can be viewed with blender or meshlab and they look fine.

Thanks for the report. I was able to replicate this error on my computer. It looks like Blender’s OBJ importer changed from 2.91 to 2.92.

I’ll make an update as soon as I can. In the meantime, if possible, use either Blender 2.83 LTS or 2.91 when using Stop Motion OBJ.

I’ve just published a minor update which fixes an issue with Stop Motion OBJ in the latest Blender 2.92. If you plan on using Blender 2.92, you must download this update for Stop Motion OBJ. Grab the latest release here: https://github.com/neverhood311/Stop-motion-OBJ/releases/tag/v2.1.1

Thanks to @abhishekr for pointing this out!

Note: If you’re still using 2.80-2.91, the previous version (2.1.0) of Stop Motion OBJ should still work.

Hi,
finally being able to showcase one of my projects, where I used the stop motion add-on.

CFD results using our own open source software HELYX for PUR foaming simulation. Results (isosurface) are exported as a colored ply from Paraview and rendered in Blender using the Add-On.
Here is a more detailed blog post about the simulation.
I have used it in other projects as well.
Thanks a lot to neverhood311!

It’s always amazing to create a tool with one specific purpose in mind, then watch other people put it to good use for another purpose.

Looks awesome!

@neverhood311 Amazing add on ! When importing PLY files does this add on support vertex color? I’m not sure where this is turned on in Blender after importing the PLY sequence.

Hi Gavan,

Blender doesn’t make it easy to view PLY vertex colors, as far as I know. You have to manually assign them to the material using nodes. Perhaps this link might help: https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/36783/import-ply-doesnt-display-vertex-colors
