MDL to an8 converter
« on: May 13, 2015, 04:40:24 pm »

converts from Source engine MDL to anim8or an8.

Thanks to NickE for figuring out how to convert from the MDL reference frame to the an8 reference frame.

It does not currently output material definitions. i plan to fix that soon. Also, make sure that the .vtx and .vvd files have the same case as the corresponding mdl file.

You can find some models to try out at sfmlab.com

Does it convert skeleton animation?
If the answer is yes,do the models on sfmlab.com
include animation?

Has anim8or frozen whenever you open the files this produces? I've had some odd problems with that especially after i add the materials

OK. I think the zip has source code in it. You might find some of that useful.
