Hey everyone!

I finally got around to coding some more updates to Model Prop 2013.


New to ModelProp2013? Well... Basicaly its a remake from my original build ModelProp 2011 but has allot more functionality.

<warning>
This program makes animations based on solid shape parts with limbs.... Alot Like DB Classic...
Existing Animations To your Objects Will Be lost While Importing In.
Make sure to save in the txt .3mp format so you can edit it further in the future.

-Build models from scratch
-Link limbs together
-Add textures and alter UV data
-Create Animations
-Has A Quick Parts Menu (Can Save To and Load From)
-Export those animations as .x (dbc/dbp) compatible
-Export .x frames for use with AppGameKit V1 with a link to a model converter to .obj


<this app is still a work in progress and is 100% free>


Here is the latest update:
http://www.smotion3d.com/modelprop/modelprop2013.zip

This is open source....since blue gui is it makes it easier to post code free.

Plugins needed to compile it: Also you need DirectX9.0c as its a DBP app
-Matrix dlls:http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=85209&b=18
-stab in the darks dll fix:http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=163815&b=15
-blue gui:http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=198156&b=8
-enhancements pack:http://www.thegamecreators.com/?m=view_product&id=2083

If you decide to try writting up some functions for it and want to share them you will make my life easier if you code it in the form of a function for me to update the main download for everyone.

Enjoy! and remember its still in development so check back for updates. Use any code from it freely as well!

I haven't played with it long but this looks amazing. Definitely a lot of time and effort has been put into it I can tell!

Will be playing with this some more for sure. The WIP button for Remap Object + Limbs UV data for single image command looks very interesting. I would love to have that feature if I could load objects with multiple textures to remap them to only one!

yup it deffinetly is a nice command and works well...

Im also going to put a command in to reverse it. ei. put them back into seperate images.

2 new commands are coming this weekend for vertex editting.

1)grid draw... its literally going to be connect the dots and make triangles...

2)remove verts un-used... this will remove the unused vertex dots from your 3d model shape.

next week i will try to focus more on animation tools.

humm... blue gui has a memory leak somewhere. I may need to go back and make my own gui to fix the problem. for now save often so you dont lose your work.

ok very cool update:

-now can import .obj files

im working on uv data at the moment but it looks like its loading them in.

if the object has several objects defined then model prop will load them in seperatly splitting them from 1 file.

updated download from first link


edit: i just spotted an error....it turns out that most obj files are not defined....stupid format! I'll fix rightaway and repost!
