Blender.SceneLoader basic file loading ?


Recommended Posts

I'm using Github pages to play around with Blender scenes. Following David Catuhe's tutorial (understanding but just pasting his script), I successfully loaded a simple box and plane scene from a .babylon file. 

I have three pages posted here, labelled "Loaded Blender..." http://gson78.github.io/miscWebGLpages/

gh-pages repo here: https://github.com/gson78/miscWebGLpages/tree/gh-pages

The first, Loaded Blender box trial 1, is working. That loads the file simple-box.babylon from the same folder .

The second, Loaded Blender box trial 2 (not working), is not loading the scene. Same file, simple-box.babylon The page loads, black without the scene..it just spins. That page I'm trying to load fa copy of the file from within the folder labeled "blender-scenes"  - one folder down the tree. Maybe I"m not understanding the parameters here.

BABYLON.SceneLoader.Load("blender-scenes", "simple-box.babylon", engine, function 


The third link, Loaded Blender Speaker Model Download (not working).  That loads the file Speakers.babylon, from the same folder as index.html.  That page loads, black, spins for a  couple of seconds, then is just black.

Both of these babylon files load into the sandbox. This speaker model i downloaded from blendswap.com, and I really didn't do anything to simplify the scene, i just exported to babylon. My next step would be to simplify the scene to just one light and camera. Any insight on that would be appreciated, but starting with just one question at a time, I'm wondering how I load a babylon file from a secondary folder, for the sake of organization/volume.

Thanks again!

I do not use SceneLoader, but I know SceneLoader.Load is depreciated.  Think you need a directory terminator, '/' or '\', on blender-scenes.


scene = engine.newScene();
BABYLON.SceneLoader.Append('blender-scenes/', 'my.babylon', …)

I think JCP is right, the first parameter is a folder so it needs to end with /

Can you publish your pages somewhere so we can test them?

@JCPalmer The slash / after the first parameter worked, thanks!

@Deltakosh thanks, As far as the Speakers.babylon file, I'm going to mess with the Blender file first, then export something simpler and see if that works. There's a bunch of lighting and planes and a lightmap or something I dont know much about and who knows what else. I'll work on using jsfiddle maybe in case I need to post again.


I know that the PhysicsEngine is updated but I figured I would try this the first time, then gather what I could from newer examples,
