Scene configuration.

The Blender SMD Tools allow Blender 2.58+ to import and export Studiomdl Data files, and to import DMX models.

  • One-click export
  • Supports all types of SMD
  • Supports DMX import
  • Supports most Blender features
  • Export multiple objects to one SMD
  • Compile a QC automatically
  • Import a whole QC at once

Installation

  1. Download the script (1.0 - June 24th, 2011; changelog)
  2. In Blender, open File > User Preferences, move to the Add-Ons tab and click Install Add-On in the bottom of the window
  3. Check the SMD Tools' box to enable them
  4. Click Save as Default to enable the tools in all Blend files

Usage

  • Use the Import SMD and Export SMD operators to import or export. Search for them from the spacebar menu, or use the File menu.
  • Group objects to export them to the same SMD.
  • Use the Scene Properties panel for SMD export options. SMDs are exported to <output folder>\<subfolder>\<object>.smd.
  • Use the Armature Properties panel to filter and batch export actions, and to more conveniently manage or create them.
Tip:You can drag the new panels to a higher position if you want.
