Trouble with Export from Blender

Post  wiesl on Fri Apr 24, 2009 11:19 am

I am new to SIO2 and Blender; so, any advice is greatly appreciated.

If the following is not an issue with SIO2, but is more my lack of knowledge with Blender; please direct me to the correct source for answers.

Okay, now on to it!

I have a Blender project that is a six sided die (cube) and have run through the process of exporting it to SIO2 format (.sio2 file). The die is red with white circular craters for the number indication; when exporting and running my project, the object does not have any color; it is black and white and displays the triangular construction. After playing around a bit; I can get color exported, but the circular craters are square when running the project.

If I select the entire object (which looks glorious in Blender) and run the export script; shouldn't I have what I'm seeing in Blender?

Hope this all makes sense! Thanks in advance for your help.

You need to watch the tutorials VERY carefully with regards to what is and isn't supported when exporting from Blender. This is especially important when dealing with textures and texture size. I highly recommend reading through all the source code in the tutorials paying extra special attention to the comments. There is a lot of info in there. Pay attention to the details in the video tutorials as well. There is a good post in the forum with a HUGE amount of tips that you should also read through thoroughly as it touches on the finer points of exporting from Blender.

Uprise78 has hit this right on the money.
The video tutorials are very thorough and will answer every question you have!

Make sure you select all and convert from quads to triangles.
Make sure that all your textures are a power of two - e.g. 16x16, 256x256 up to maximum of 1024x1024.
