Hello,

I have maya 7.0 and visaul C express edition 2005 FRENCH... if you explain me what I need to do to compile the source code... I can compil it for maya 7.0... and if the procedures are the same for linux in a few weeks I will be able to compile it for maya 8.0 linux... But I need you to explain me what I need to do to set visual C to compile the plugins... after I think I will be able to do it under linux... with a few help...

Great stuff you made, hte faster xml mesh exporter :wink:

Awsome, it's woring! :P

Do you have all you need to make the 6.0 and 7.0 version, yourdaftpunk?
Or should I send the 6.0 dev-files?

I want it to work for me too! :x :D

I promise I'm going to try to compile for 7 by Saturday. If it works I'll try 6.

Also, I just got material support working in a limited way (only one lambert, blinn, or phong applied to a model). Latest files here for those with Maya 8:

I am getting the Maya 8 bug with emitters.

// Error: No object matches name: materialInfo7.incandescence //

The MTI script should have been looking for my object's lambert shader, keylightShader.incandescence, right?

I had no idea there were even MaterialInfo nodes in Maya :)

Again, thanks for that Shawn.

Mmm... don't want to bother anyone but that'll be so cool, and a final breakthrough... Material's attributes names haven't changed through Maya's versions, only their index has... well, nevermind, I know I didn't help anyone out here :? or maybe it's just more complicated that I suggested :oops:

Linux version of the exporter would totally kick ass! :wink:
Intel Core I7 4770K @3.5ghz, 32GB ddr3 1600 mhz Ram, Nvidia Gtx 760 4GB for display, Gtx 780 6Gb for cuda rendering, win10/Linux mint 17.2, Blender/Sketchup/Modo

Ok, the Nov. 25th version has a Maya 7 (edit: and Maya 6!) build for testing. http://www.shawnlipowski.com/plug-ins/

I can't compile for Linux, but maybe someone else can.

Also, there is still some problems with normals. Let me illustrate:

This is what it should look like (old mental ray render):

stylish 8)
Heh, looks like he has been attacked by acid :P

Have you exported the normals the same way as in the MEL version?

And when do you think you'll have a 6.0 version?

Really love this thing :D And I would love it even more if I could use it myself :P

You should see that the normals are not the same.. :)

Sweet, the plug-in and scripts work for Maya 7. However, I'm also having problems with the normals being exported from Maya.

Thanks, this is awesome.
