So I made a model in Blender, Rigged it with bones, animated what I wanted, wxported the .x file, copied an existing FPE File, reset the model path, reset the texture path, set

animmax = 0
anim0 = 1,249 - this is the animation

And as I insert the model, it is placed in its initial pre-rigged position as if there is no animation on it.

Did you "Make Real" the armature?

Well I have parented the armature to the mesh "with weights" so I guess what you mean is that "Make Real" feature turns armature animation into a mesh deform animation.

I googled for the "make real" feature and found in only in the tutorial for older Blender version - which, bith all blender updates since, is quite hard for me to find relations in. I can no longer find the button within the latest Blender Version

PS: I think what I used may be reffered by the Blender-ers as the "Old Way" of bone control

Means zero animations maximum.

Oh and also I added the armature using SHIFT + A - not through the add modifier window.

Well after some research I have realized that the "make real" button has been removed in the later Blender versions.

OK then - What I need now is to figure out a way to apply armature animation to a mesh so that the animation would be present after I export the .x file.

Here is the "Make Real" for the 2.6 and up.


Also Rolfy has a good point.

I'm gonna need to do some searching as when I press the Apply button, it only captures the current frame position and then it, what seems line, de-parents the mesh from the armature.

Ok well it all stops before pressing "APPLY".

After I press "apply" the model captures the pose of the current key frame and that is it. If I move the timeline stroller, I can see the armature moving along it's animation, however the mesh stays at that pose that it was in when I pressed "apply"

Before pressing apply, my mesh is perfectly manipulated by the armature with automatic weights. I need to convert that armature animation to mesh deform animation to be able to export the animated mesh as a .x file
