Export from Maya, error in the OgreXMLConverter.

Post by Imperil » Thu Mar 24, 2005 8:06 pm

We export the file from maya using the command line tool and we do get the proper XML files, I do not think that is an issue at all.

However when we go to convert the XML files using OgreXMLConverter the skeleton converts fine it seems, but when I go to convert the mesh it says that it cannot load the skeleton file.

Before anyone asks.. yes I have made sure the file exists and is in the same directory as the ogrexmlconverter tool and the mesh xml.

Here is what I get from the log:

Code: Select all

Thanks for the help.

EDIT:

I am using a Maya 6.0 file, exporting using the commandline tool to create .mesh, .skeleton, .material and then trying to use the OgreXMLConverter tool. I just noticed that the exporter is for Maya 6.5, does that mean it cannot be used on Maya 6.0 files?

It is very simple geometry and animation used for a test.

I replied to the PM, but for the benefit of others:

In the latest XML converter (Command line tools download from the main site) there is a notice that you can ignore the warning printed straight afterward.

I replied to your PM, but I tried loading the converted .mesh (which is very simple geometry and 1 single animation) in the mesh viewer as well as in the engine and I had major problems:

The mesh is an old version, probably caused by the fact the Maya exporter is getting well out of date. We've had a 6.5 version contributed (which I believe is up to date), but the 4/5 version is very old now. Unfortunately Maya-using contributors are hard to come by - unless someone actually gives us a license for Maya there's nothing we can do to help to get this exporter updated, sorry.

Try running the .mesh through OgreMeshUpgrader (from the command line tools).
