Urho3D-Blender

Urho3D-Blender

The Urho3D-Blender Export Add-on is a tool that bridges Blender with the Urho3D engine, allowing for the efficient export of meshes, armatures, animations, and materials.

Key features:

  • Export Process: Facilitates the export of Blender assets with a simple button click, using current options which can be expanded or minimized for user convenience.
  • Output Customization: Offers options for output folder selection, file overwriting, and the use of custom subfolders to maintain Urho3D’s folder hierarchy.
  • Object Selection: Allows users to choose whether to export all objects or only those selected within the Blender scene.
  • Mesh Origin and Scale: Provides settings to define the origin of meshes as global or local and to apply scale transformations upon export.
  • Modifier Application: Enables the application of Blender modifiers to objects before export, ensuring that the final exported model reflects the intended design.
  • Error Handling: Includes features to select vertices with errors and force missing elements to default values, aiding in troubleshooting export issues.
  • Object Merging: Can merge all exported objects into a single Urho model with different geometries, optimizing the export for certain use cases.
  • Animation Export: Supports the export of armature and object animations with various options, including the export of markers as triggers for use in Urho3D.
  • Geometry Data Selection: Allows users to specify which vertex data to export, such as positions, normals, UVs, tangents, weights, and colors.
  • Morph Export: Enables the export of shape keys, including morphed normals and tangents, for advanced animation and modeling techniques.
  • Material and Texture Export: Converts Blender material settings to Urho3D material parameters and copies textures used by materials to the output folder.
  • Prefab Export: Provides functionality to export Urho3D prefabs, streamlining the process of using Blender assets within the Urho3D engine.
