Nimet - Advanced Ogre3D Mesh and dotScene Viewer

Post by saejox » Fri Apr 26, 2013 6:48 pm

Hi Everyone,
I know there are a lot of mesh viewers already. None of them have the features i need (unicode, flexible resource paths, light visuals, animation blending, etc...).
So it made another one. It has quite a lot of features, will add more if you want me too. :)

Features:
Mesh viewer, Animation viewer, .Scene viewer
- Wireframe/Textured, Show normals, Polygon Count and Vertex count, SubEntity list, Geometric Information
- Play multiple animations at a time
- List used bones and keyframe count
- Tail and Head locations, axes and names on each bone
- Adjustable bone sizes
Live Coding, View changes you made outside of Nimet applied immediately. No need for a restart

- Mesh files updated as they are exported
- Material files updated immediately
- Program files updated immediately
- HLSL and CG shaders updated immediately
- Textures reloaded as you edit them
Easy Resource management
- Drag and Drop resource directories
- Drag and Drop resource.cfg files
- Lists used materials, textures and shaders. Opens them with one click
- Hierarchical list of resource paths
- Turn each directory to a recursive resource path or remove if needed
- Save settings so you don't repeat yourself
Many light and Camera options
- Directional, Point and Spot lights
- All light properties editable at runtime
- Point and Spot lights are visualized as billboard in the viewer
- Color picker
- 4 different camera modes. Pivot, Orbital, Free, Fixed (rotates mesh)
- Adjustable camera speed
Open non-English(Unicode) meshes, resources and directories.
Always On top option, fully resizable window and hidable panels to allow easy window management
And Many more features to create a better workflow

How to use:
- Install VS2012 runtimes if you did not already: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=30679
- Extract zip file do any where
- Associate .mesh files with bin/Release/Nimet.exe
- Drag and drop directories, resource.cfg, .scene or .mesh files
- Every action has a rebindable keyboard shortcuts. Hover over the buttons to see their tooltips.

Known Issues:
- Live coding of cg and glsl shaders in openGL renderer does not work as expected. Use hard reset [F5] at this moment.
More info at this thread: http://www.ogre3d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=77135

Please list all the features you want. Everyone has their own needs from such an application. I might have missed your favorite feature from another viewer.
I am using this daily, i'll add all the useful features you request :)

Nice! Haven't tried it yet but I can tell this will be a great alternative to the good old OgreMeshy. Thanks saejox, great job.

How to view a mesh?
That's curious. That's how it works, drag/drop .mesh file, you should see notification that its loaded.

Does your file have a .mesh extension?
Is it failing always or sometimes?

Btw, is there any interest in a .scene viewer?
I can add it if you want.

I just unzip it, and then run the exe.
I drag and drop .mesh file on it, it always display nothing, the log has no changes.
The mesh file has a .mesh extension, and it always display nothing.

My OS is Windows 7 64bit. I also tried change the RenderSystem, it doesn't help.

@Pulas
I have completely rewritten drag/drop routine. This time it uses COM/OLE.
Its much more stable now.

Also added .scene viewer. It doesn't have a new ui menus at the moment. Will add it later.

Changelog:
== 1.1.0 ==
- Completely new drag/drop handler. Now uses OLE instead of WM_DRAGDROP.
- Nimet now can open .scene files, there no new gui menus atm.
- Added faster free camera speed when LShift is held
- Free camera speed is now same for all meshes, does not depend on mesh size anymore. Was harder to navigate big meshes before.

Download link updated at first post.

edit:
updated again. ver 1.1.1
- Nimet now can be associated with .scene files to open them by double clicking
- Force reload now works with .scene files

New version time!

== 1.2.0 ==
- Added dotScene information panel
- shows dotScene batch count
- show dotScene polygon count
- show dotScene entity count
- show dotScene light count
- Settings now saved when program exists. Previously you had to press ctrl+s or save button.
( resource directories still need to saved manually. That's intended, you don't want too many resource directories defined.)
- Added frame limiter ( very useful during shader development)
- On/Off switch for limiter
- Add added fps limit selector slider
- removed forced vsync
- now camera speed does not depend on frame rate

main post link updated!
