Convert .obj to .mdl
Anyone know of a program that isn't blender (because i absolutely hate blender) and that is free that can convert a .obj to a .mdl file?

Source SDK: Steam > LIBRARY (why upper-case?) > TOOLS > Source SDK
It has an itemtest feature. I remember using that to convert OBJ files to MDL before I learned Blender. Of course, it's a REALLY bad method, and I'm not even sure it works post-SteamPipe, plus you have to copy the model/material/texture files from Team Fortress 2 to Source FilmMaker yourself.

But if you want to convert OBJ to SMD/DMX to MDL, that's way easier, better, and allows much more customization and such. See above post for tools to convert OBJ to SMD/DMX.

Question: how DO you use blender to convert OBJ to MDL? I tried using the Source SDK itemtest, but all it would show was a black square in the middle of my screen.
