How do I export from Blender 2.5 to Ogre (Linux, Ubuntu)?

Post by SwedishWings » Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:51 pm

I've spent quite a few hours trying to figure out how to export from Blender 2.5 (Ubuntu 11.10) to Ogre (also Ubuntu 11.10).
There is much written but i can't find any tutorial or something that helps me install a working exporter in Blender.
All i need to do is export a few simple meshes, no animations or anything like that.

Any pointers would be most helpful!

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Have you tried the hartsantler's exporter (http://www.ogre3d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=61485)? Works quite well for me (I'm on Windows though, but that shouldn't make a difference). The only thing you need to do is hack the script to point to your OgreXMLConverter binary (or convert the XML files yourself).

Any particular reason you're still using Blender 2.5 rather than 2.61? The latest exporter script probably won't work with 2.5.

Thanks LiMuBei,

i did just that, getting 2.61 and the exporter you suggested. Works like charm!

Thanks :-)
