New version 2.2

Lists of changes in 2.2

  • File exception handling has been improved

NOTE! This time there's no need to delete config file. You just have to overwrite existing python scripts and reactivate the Addon in User Preferences window. Enjoy!

New Version 2.1

Lists of changes in 2.1

  • BSP Optimization now ranges from 0 up to 3
  • JPG and PNG renaming is now turned off by default
  • New option of centering the object near its centroid. Very useful if an object is not
    located near the 0,0,0 coordinates in Blender.

If you use version 2.0 you must delete your current config file (dark_exporter_conf.txt). The new version will create this file from scratch with default content. Remember to customize the paths after the file has been rebuilt.

New version 0.1.8

Blender 2.60 (which has just been released yesterday) introduced a little change in API, which I had to take into account. Version 0.1.8 is exactly the same from the user point of view as version 0.1.7. Version 0.1.8 can also be used with previous versions of Blender (2.5x).

0.1.5 ready for download!

This time Dark Exporter makes the modeler life a bit easier. From now on you only need to change Object Names - the script will automatically copy that name to Object Data Name.

I've managed to write a full documentation for Dark Exporter, so I decided to switch the development phase to Beta.

The documentation is available on my my site: http://www.bytehold.com/index.php/projects/dark-exporter
