Export animation blocks as X, Y, Z + rotation?

(1/4) > >>

Hi Leo! I sent you an email but was unsure if it was the correct address, so posting here seems better.

I'm currently working with a HL1 mod based on Resident Evil and your tool is great. However, the ability to export the animations out into a format I can then convert to HL .smd animations would be really, really useful.

I was thinking perhaps if it just dumped out the current animation's bone index, bone pos (x, y, z) and bone rotation (x, y, z) then I could write my own script to convert it to .smd animation. For this to work I would also need to know the pivot position of each part of the model too. HL's format for animations is in plain text like this:

boneIndex Xpos Ypos Zpos Xrot Yrot Zrot

Any help you could provide would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I tried looking into this myself and wrote a quick tool for reading .EDR and .EMR files. I had no problem extracting some of the info from the EDD (I looked at ResidentEvilArtist's .pdf to try and understand the file format) but I cannot seem to figure out the .EMR format. I believe this is where the animation info stored (all the angles of each bone for each frame).

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Either with a description of RE2's .emr so I can extract the animation info and convert it to .smd myself, or if you were kind enough to add support to this to RE2MV.

For compensation, I noticed that you're using MediaFire and other websites for uploading files. I can offer you a place to upload your files. I run a website where we host mods of HL but it's no problem to set up a space to host your files too, so people don't accidentally download that Download Manager or anything.

Sorry for the late reply @james, I'll try to do something about your request as soon as I can, most likely I'll add an option to RE2MV that would allow to export selected animations  to .TXT so then you could use it as you want.

That sounds great Leo, thanks for the reply! I would be glad to give some feedback to you if you implement this. :)

Cool tool. to bad that the RE2MV can not export animation to editor in other 3D app. I hope in the future that support.
