Does exist a VRML exporter plug-in?

Would it be that hard?

It'd be nice to have one.

Although, I'd want a VRML importer.

Blender has a VRML import/export option. So, you import with blender and export to an anim8or compatible format. It would be awesom if there was an importer for anim8or though.

I'm going to make myself this exporter, but I'm thoroughly a noob !
How to format a string like this :
"hello world" -> "hello_world" in ASL ?

Thank you !

Have you bothered looking at the ASL tutorial list in this board? Technically a "hello world" tutorial isn't useful at all in this setting, just follow one of the tutorials out there step by step and read the references until you get results. If you have no prior experience with scripting, start small!

I read ASL specifications and the two tutorials. But I didn't find how to create my own function ! Then I think I'll be able to format the string as I want. My exporter is nearly ready to be released ;)

I don't think you can make your own functions. You'll have to be creative with for and while loops. I'm sure you can do it! I worked on my own export script a while back and it wasn't that hard to work around the limitations! (reminds me that I should go back to it sometime...)

That is ok, this is the code I made (it's simple, but it can be useful for a beginner) :

Code: [Select]
$s=$shape.name;
for $ii = 0 to ($s.length() - 1) do {
if ($s.GetChar($ii) == 32)     {
$s=$s.SetChar(95, $ii);
}
}
My exporter works fine, but I'm going to improve it a litle bit :)

I use this code :

if ($attribute.GetType() == 6) {

But Anim8or console says : undefined member reference 'GetType'
Strange... what is wrong ?

Sorry but I don't remember ever getting that one to work. You'll just have to assume an attribute is the right type before you work with it. You can use GetStringValue() to make sure you're capturing a string. If it returns 0 then that means it's not a string. Or at least that's how it's supposed to work...

It bothers me but I removed this verification step... GetType function doesn't seem working, maybe it's a bug !

I have a big question :

How to separate (cut) an object with several materials into several objects with only one material ?

And a small question :

Is it possible to make some alert dialog box ?

(after that, my exporter will be perfect !! ;D)

I don't think there's an alert function.

As for separating meshes by materials, you could try looping through the GetFaceMaterialIndex() per face to differentiate between faces that have different materials, and then export accordingly. Just look through the scripting reference to see what you can do.

I succeeded in making a kind of alert like this :
Code: [Select]
file $alert;

if ($ext=="bmp"){
            $alert.open("$console", "w");
            $alert.print("\n\nWARNING :\n---------\nSome bitmap textures are used in : %s \nVRML doesn't support this file format for textures.\n\n",$s);
            $alert.close();
          }

Now I'm coding the separation of meshes by materials. The end is near :)
