flamerboy's Barn

Post by flamerboy67664 » Tue May 27, 2014 8:41 am

Workin on this Crimson Skies Universe Curtiss-Wright J2 Fury.

My first for-YS-only scratch model. It took only 6 hours to make this thing.

I just deleted Blender 2.70 and downgraded to 2.48. (but this thing is made in 2.70)

Please help on how to add animations on blenda!

I like to use dnmviewer. It's more accurate and less messy IMO - even decaff has issues from time to time.

It's pretty easy to use too - self explanatory for the most part. move things, see the results, animate things, see the results - you can't go wrong really.

Looks good... keep it going!

I think Decaff's animation tutorial is a good source for learning about animation.

I don't know if it helps, but props use CLA 3 in YSFlight.

the YS Wiki has a lot of animation stuff that I pieced together from the scripts themselves and examples in existing models.


The problem you might have been having was that the mesh was originally made in 2.70. I would try exporting it from 2.70 as a obj and then import that into 2.49...unless you've already gotten it as a dnm or srf.

Sir decaff, can you give me instructions on how to separate objects from the fuselarge so (as you said) the props can animate?

(BTW who likes Crimson Skies here? After this I'll make the Hughes Bloodhawk.)

Go into edit mode, then select the faces you want to separate, then press p
A message will come up asking what to separate, and click on selected.
And don't forget to name the objects with a .srf at the end - I often do and then can't work out why it isn't working.... :lol:

Too lazky to do it.

Too many asshole faces.

Damn I made the model as one I didn't fuck(separate) an object so it won't merge with the model.

Sorry.

After errors in DNM export by Attribute Error, I ran these things

1. put the DNM export .pyd file in a folder
2. put the .blend file of your project in the same folder
3. open the DNM export .pyd in the folder
4. DNM appears the same name as the .blend file.
