  1. Hello HTML game devs. First time poster. Some textures aren't appearing in babylon.js in a tile set I exported from blender using the Blender To Babylon 5.6 exporter. Here is the tile set scene in blender, as well as a simple hand crafted scene built in blender using the tiles to give an idea of what the final product should look like. . Here is the default tile set scene imported into babylon.js as well as a scene generated by from my map-generation script. Despite my horrible lighting, it's clear the wall texture is not being rendered in all the models. Neither the exporter or babylon.js are generating any errors or warnings. Here is an archive containing the .babylon file and textures Here is the blender exporter log I am new to 3D rendering and only have a basic understanding of Materials, Lighting, UV Maps and Textures, so if somebody could have a crack at it I'd really appreciate it.
  2. Back to the Lamps on Babylon / Open Contest! forum thread, I've commited myself to write a tutorial about my lightmap workflow. Here the demo: And here the first published version of the tutorial... but in french, for now 😄 I will soon make available an english version, don't worry. [edit] english version is out:
  3. I am thinking that I might make an AbstractMaterial class, which would handle baking, assuming that the API is the same regardless whether EEVEE or Cycles. Fingers crossed, since baking was renderer dependent before, which sucked. Then make 2 sub-classes, STDMaterial & PBRMaterial, assuming a PBR can use bake textures. Big problem in trying to detect if baking is the same across renderers is I cannot find any user interface on baking, just output. Any one have a clue? This is the Render Tab, where baking used to be: FYI, this is not an old build. I just got tired of looking at those awful new default colors, so I set theme back to 2.79
  4. Hi, I have a room designed in Unreal. I exported it as Fbx, imported this Fbx into Blnder and exported as Babylon file. But the babylon file is not displayed properly. (screen shot attached). No errors were reported during these conversions and all the texture files are there in the required location. No errors reported during loading of the babylon scene. I could not understand what is the mistake I did. Can you please help me on this? Thanks in advance.
  5. An awesome series of game development tutorials. The famous Asteroids game is being recreated in Blender and WebGL, without using a single line of code! So far 7 videos are already available: Part 1: Modeling of the spaceship Part 2: Creating materials for the spaceship. Outline effect Part 3: Creating looping animated stars Part 3.5: Re-making stars animation with Verge3D Puzzles Part 4: Adding keyboard controls Part 5: Modeling of asteroids. Materials and outlining Part 6: Making asteroids move with Puzzles
  6. This interactive application was developed by a group of 3D graphics specialists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Using Blender and Verge3D, the team led by Brian Kumanchik with support from Soft8Soft developers created an engaging WebGL experience to give you the opportunity to explore all the details of this mission. Enjoy Experience InSight by following this link. Click (or touch) and drag to explore this 3D visualization of the Mars InSight lander. Use the control panel on the left to learn about the lander’s components.
  7. Hi Everyone! I am new to babylonJs and for the life of me can't figure out how to export a mesh that contains a displacement map. Does the blender exporter support displacement maps? If no then how can I apply a displacement map after the mesh has been exported to babylonJs? I have tried the following code after importing the mesh. Again I would prefer it if I can just export the mesh with the displacement mapping, but if that's not possible then I would like to apply it after it has been imported to babylonJs. BABYLON.SceneLoader.ImportMesh('', 'assets/models/island/', 'island.babylon', scene, function (newMeshes) { newMeshes[0].applyDisplacementMap('/assets/models/island/Sand_003_DISP.png', 0, 5); });
  8. Hey, all! I've noticed that Firefox (51.0.1 is my version) throws errors when loading all .babylon files that were exported from Blender. The files load fine, though. Should I be concerned with this? It doesn't happen in Chrome, but I'd like to remove the clutter from the Inspector so I don't lose any actual issues in Firefox. Error: (all .babylon files cause this) XML Parsing Error: not well-formed Location: Line Number 1, Column 1: Playground Link: Thanks!
  9. Hi everyone, I start learning to use your software because he is really interesting and usefull but I encounter a serious problem with blender export animation. So I create some asset and put them little simple, but when I export the file and put it in babylon, all the animation are compiled in one and apply in all the assets; Let me show you with screen shots. As you can see in the first screen the asset have their own animation but in the 2 and 3 screenshot they have all animation of all the assets Is there a solution about that ? I'll be glad if someone as an answer, thanks you very much and have a nice day.
  10. So I have a scene that I got from another person that I've exported from Blender into Babylon, but whenever I try to render the scene dynamically it falls straight down. Changing the physics of the scene in Babylon doesn't seem to work, nor does creating a ground object with collisions enabled. I've attached the scene in question; what am I missing? example.babylon
  11. Hi Blender users! We have to enhance the doc about how to get things from Blender to BJS. Here the existing one: and also some tips: Github issue can be found here: You can use github or this forum to suggest some missing parts, and you can, of course, suggest direclty here content to "copy-paste" If you prepare screenshots, please use the default Blender theme "Flatty light". If you want to see the advancement, here is my doc' fork. --- Nota Bene: (I put here a list which will be updated to easily retrieve some tips/methods/asking) about animation, something to investigate: when animating multiple objects, use have to rename each action with objectName-Action? Another one. about animation, explanations from JCPalmer, contribution to future too. Blender animation parenting & pivot issue - instructions animating a child mesh export multiple actions vs only current : --- todo list canceled for now: about automatic baking : can't be avoid for now
  12. In a blender armature modifier there is a setting called "Preserve Volume" which basically stops meshes from collapsing on themselves in some bone-related animations. I'm a newbie animator, but I'm aware that there is more to joints+deformations than just checking the preserve volume box and hoping things look good. This is particularly relevant given that some game engines, such as our beloved BabylonJS (also Unity) do not have this feature. So the question here is really what techniques do people recommend for keeping joints rotating/bending and looking nice in Babylon? An extreme example of volume being preserved versus not preserved occurs when twisting a model comprised of two cubes and two bones. With volume preserved we get what appears to be the twisting of a square column: Without volume preserved, we get twisting that collapses in the vicinity of the joint, creating something like an hourglass: If the twisting motion continues the central joint will get all the way squished: Something similar occurs in other twists such turning a head, in certain shoulder rotations, in internal/external leg rotation at the hip, and probably a bunch of other scenarios. A milder deformation occurs in movements that are mostly single-dimension rotations such as a knee or elbow bend.
  13. How do I play animations created in the blender action editor? I'm trying to organize walk, run, idle, etc animations and start/stop them by name. Also is there a particularly good way to import the blender objects that don't have any world position when the game begins? I noticed there are many different ways to load things. Objects in this game are spawned in after a receiving a network message, so there's no pre-existing concept of a scene (or my brain just isn't used to thinking about scenes). Even the terrain itself is chosen by the server. Which loading strategy should I employ? Blender scene: Action editor from under the dopesheet: Loading and positioning the character (exported with blender/babylon exporter 5.6.4): BABYLON.SceneLoader.LoadAssetContainer("./", "blocky.babylon", this.scene, function (container) { console.log('CONTAINER', container) var meshes = container.meshes var materials = container.materials // manually position the object somewhere that i can see it when the game starts up let whatever = meshes[0] whatever.position.y = 21 whatever.position.z = 4 container.addAllToScene() // can i just get rid of this somehow? // would prefer something like scene.add(new BlockyEntity()), executed later }) When inspecting the loaded `container` object, none of the animations arrays are populated. There does appear to be a `container.skeletons[0]._ranges` that has properties that match the names of my animations (crazy, walk, walkdss, etc). I'm not sure how to play them. Here is the character (appears to be hovering on the last frame of one of one of the animations? or maybe this is just the pose it is in in blender not sure) Thanks
  14. I'm using addMeshTask to load my models, and I'd like to start loading bones from them as well. Is there a similar function for loading bones asynchronously? (The documentation seems silent on this point.)
  15. Hi guys! I'm trying to learn Babylon.js. It's really cool! I created a simple configurator with a mesh imported from blender and works fine on localhost. However, when I put my files online, I can't see the meshes and the page remains blank. The Console returns this error: . BJS - [17:53:08]: Unable to import meshes from 3d/cube.babylon: Failed to load scene. t._ErrorEnabled @ babylon.js:4 f @ babylon.js:36 (anonymous) @ babylon.js:36 p @ babylon.js:4 XMLHttpRequest.send (async) s @ babylon.js:4 d @ babylon.js:4 t.LoadFile @ babylon.js:4 b @ babylon.js:36 i @ babylon.js:37 (anonymous) @ babylon.js:37 load (async) t._checkManifestFile @ babylon.js:37 t @ babylon.js:37 i._loadData @ babylon.js:36 i.ImportMesh @ babylon.js:36 createScene @ configurator.js:71 (anonymous) @ configurator.js:100 It seems that the .babylon file does not exist... but it exists! If I create a simple cube or another mesh (not imported from blender) it works fine... I attach the project folder. And this is the url Thank you in advance!
  16. Hello, For anyone that may be interested, I have been messing with to get it to export Vertex Groups along with their associated indices and have attached it. I think @adam and @ozRocker have both asked about this and I'd definitely make good use of it. I'd be grateful if you could let me know if this works for you or not, please. It currently adds them under the 'meshes' as 'vertexGroups' Massive disclaimer: I am not good with Python! Thank you Problem: it duplicates indices.
  17. Hello, For those that are interested, I have been able to tweak the Blender exporter to grab the vertex positions of a mesh over time and save it to metadata. As this comes straight from Blender it will also support PC2, MDD and animated modifiers. Files could end up quite large though if there's a lost of frames and / or a dense mesh. Clearly there's an issue with missing faces but here's a PG:

    We are glad to present a new release of Verge3D – the Blender version comes first this time. We included several significant improvements in this release, such as basic support for Cycles nodes, puzzles for dragging objects with the mouse or gestures and puzzles for limiting object movement, support for anisotropic filtering for textures, Unicode characters and new settings for constraints. We have also created a new application to demo all these features. In this release: • Support for Cycles renders, including physically-based lighting model and the Principled BSDF node! • New Puzzles for positioning, rotating and zooming objects by using the mouse or touch screen. This tool has unlimited possibilities whether it's controlling the a complex equipment or the simple arrangement of the furniture in your apartment. • Support for international and special characters for the names of objects, animations, files and projects. • Textures now look much better due to anisotropic filtering feature. • Ability to control constraints, procedural animations, sounds and many other features in the Puzzles editor. • Various UI/UX improvements in App Manager. Remember the NASA Curiosity application? Now you can create the same app without a line of code using only visual logic blocks, look at our new example.

  19. I downloaded the latest blender exporter for Babylon (currently 5.6.2), but I noticed that when I try to export there are no options for the exporter. See here: I tried with blender versions 2.79 and 2.80, and while the exporter does work in 2.79 I can only export with the default options. I've always hated Python so I'm not clear exactly what's happening, but I did notice that if I combine the contents of the JsonMain and ExportSettingsPanel classes I do see the options panel as intended. Does anyone know what's going wrong here?

    Farmer's Journey

    This is a simple runner (walker exactly:) ) made with Verge3D engine and runs directly in the browser. All was modelled in Blender, even texturing in 90% made in Blender: I just set up shaders and light and baked it to texture. In my pipeline I've also used 3ds Max, Krita, Webflow, Gimp and Audacity. The game was made without coding in two weeks by only one artist. Character and most of the assets based on concepts of Vihn Nguyen . Thanks to Forget the Whale for the soundtrack. Link to the game: DIRECT LINK You can also download all source files with mesh, textures and sounds HERE Some art related to the game can be found here on my ARTSTATION PAGE
  21. Hi all! I use Blender for modelling. I've found out that mesh's instances can greatly improve performance, however I've got 2 issues after importing scene in Babylon.js: 1. There are no collisions with any instances except "parent" mesh. In Blender collision checkbox is set and affects all instances (no chance to set it separately, but that's OK in this case). How to enable collisions? 2. There are no tags for individual instance. I can set them for "parent" mesh, in Blender tags are visible for all instances, however they are not accessible from Babylon.js. How to set different tags for individual instance? Thank you!
  22. Hello, I'm posting this partly to help anyone else who has struggled with this, but also to ask if I am doing something wrong / if this is a bug in the exporter. When I export a mesh from Blender with 'Shape Keys', I have to create two Keys in addition to the Basis for it to work in Babylon. One Key + basis: Two keys + basis:
  23. Hello, Can mesh.lookAt be hardcoded into a .babylon file? If so, how? I have a few meshes in blender that I would like to use the 'Track To' constraint but I see that these are not supported for meshes in the exporter, whereas they are for cameras. I am hoping I can tweak the Blender > Bablyon exporter. I appreciate I can do the same thing in the js script, but I'd rather have Blender and the exporter do it for me. Cheers,
  24. Probably a good question for @JCPalmer: I am looking for some advice regarding rotations of exported Blender models. During the creation of the two models below I used the Blender alignments, i.e. I used front view when editing the front of the model, right view to edit what I considered the right side, etc. However, when I export them they have different alignments than expected. The box model is just a simple test cube. It does not have an armature. The "dude" model does have an armature. Still, it is aligned with the same axes as the box. Neither model has any rotation (all 0's). Both are using the default XYZ Euler rotation mode. The dude is slightly elevated (y axis) but is otherwise at 0, 0. I would not expect the red dot to be visible in the Babylon shot. I have not rotated either mesh in Blender, only imported them with SceneLoader.ImportMesh.

    Blender animations

    Hello - can anyone explain how to create a simple blender object with 2 or more animations, for exporting to babylon? I can get a basic animation to work, but more than 1 is a mystery. I can't find any tutorials that explain this. I just want a really simple cube that moves sideways and up and down, as separate animations. Then I'll be able to understand how to setup multiple animations in blender, ready to be used in babylon. Thanks
