VTMB Bloodlines Model Editing Lessons
« on: May 01, 2019, 10:44:05 PM »
Hello fellow campers I thought I'd stick a few Blender Model editing vids together Today so anybody that fancy's a play around that feels daunted can get little insight. Not the most polished but will cover the basic of import edit export with a couple of tips.

The Vids contain import/export script setup in Blender. Import, edit, export of a model. .x/vpk Extraction regarding .mdl

What this will help you do is edit Jeanette's Model to give her no skirt and a Ponytail.

MooCHa, you're suggesting to use ugly VampEd 0.92, but the Packfile Explorer from the SDK does the same exctracting from VPKs and exporting to .X.
Also, new SDK already includes both Blender 2.42 and its import-export srcipts.

It's what I choose to use and Blender 2.47 is a bit more updated where you see textures in edit mode where in 2.42 you can't as reported in another thread. In fact I've never used 2.42 ever so can't really comment on it. It's what I'm use to.

People can  use Packfile Explorer if they wish too.

Thanks for the tutorial, it has helped me a lot, I have already posted some models in Vampire Bloodlines Mod DB, I am like Marius217.
I have a doubt. How can I assign the textures to the Bone?
I want to make coats ... but I want that when the model walks the suit goes hand in hand and does not look too rigid.

Really thanks for your videos.
regards

Javier/Marius217,

Thanks for the kind words and am really happy you can make use of the video lessons.

Bare with me as I'm a little intoxicated.

We can't add new Physics as I'm aware of which would be the Cloth modifier in Blender so If it is rigid. Its rigid, hence , no coat movement :(

Assigning new textures(Materials) is Impossible as far as I know. If you take the Jack Tribal tattoo re skin I posted in the download section. I increased the width of the body texture file, copy and pasted the arm and moved all of the UV around so I could accommodate the new addition, so, You can add texture elements but not assign anything new.

Thank you! I have waited for these tutorials! And I have just one question. These scripts will work with 2.79 blender because I used to this version of blender.

Can you do a video about replacing a weapon? Or anything related to changing animations?

Animations are still impossible to modify :(....

No.

Sadly, I'm not doing anymore Video's. The Nostalgia has worn off and got other things to getting on with in life. Regarding animations, Barabbah has answered that question.
