My mind is confused and I am lost. I am trying to get something really simple working and have failed to do this over the last 3 days. I have finally come here for help!
Export models from blender into JSON with vertexPositions / normals / texCoords / indices. Should be simple or so I though.
What I have tried:
My first task was to find a blender 2.5x compatible exporter. Found it (https://github.com/dfletcher/yawgle)
Next I used File > User Preferences opened the addon page and clicked the shiny install addon button. It did nothing. I pressed it again and it informed me that the script has been installed. Confused that the blender console didnt throw an error, no messages poped up I decided it must be a bad version of blender.
My second task (because the one above didnt work after the 15th try)
I uninstalled blender, uninstalled python. Got the new python (v 3.2) and installed it. Got the new version of blender 2.57.1 and installed that.
Attempted manual install (placed the files in %appdata%/blender foundation/2.57/scripts/addons) - this has the same problem as described above
Attempted to use blenders install - the same thing occurred
Opened a text file in blender pasted the python code and clicked run script. No errors were thrown and in File > Export there was a “.json” !!! yay but wait its grayed out and I cant click on it?
Im lost and cant figure anything. I have attempted to install 3 different scripts. I have attempted running Python 2 and 3 I have tried blender 2.49b / 2.53a / 2.57.1 they all did the exact same thing as described above (with the exception of 2.59b throwing an error when running the script because it was built with python 3 in mind)
Please help! Any ideas would help! Thanks in advance.
