I have no idea what you mean. Please try again to make a discussion and describe your idea in more detail.

That too with whatever actions you have defined on your model already taking priority.

I wanted to try and add a discussion topic but it won’t let me. So I ask this.
Would it be possible to automate the “Proportion Trick” with Blender Source Tools in the future? Such that you’d import a .mdl to use its animation set, and make Blender export your model with all the existing animations angle changes only to your model’s skeleton. Or supply a folder of decompiled smd’s from that .mdl include.

Garry's Mod will be recognised as an engine branch in the next release. Until then, just leave that field blank.

Jem, same dude, i've been trying for 1 day searching for an answer, but couldn't find anything. Maybe try unistalling gmod?
Jem Jun 15 @ 10:53am 
I cannot export as smd because the engine path of Garry's Mod is an error and doesn't detect it. I've already tried changing blender versions and still nothing. I can confirm I have the "studiomdl.exe" so why is this issue happening???

does anyone know how to Import the MDL models PLZ

I'm having trouble with exporting a cosmetic I've created for TF2. It seems to export fine, however when I try to preview my item a page shows up saying the build has failed, and at the end of a long list it says:

ERROR: unknown attachment link 'bip_head'
ERROR: Aborted Processing on 'workshop/player/items/medic/item_preview/item_preview.mdl'
CTargetMDL::Compile Failed - c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\team fortress 2\tf\models\workshop\player\items\medic\item_preview\item_preview.mdl
WARNING: CTargetZIP::Compile - Target 1 Compile Failed

Other people have seemed to run into this same problem but I don't know if anyone has figured it out yet. Does anyone else know what this means?

can someone tell me why everytime i try to export my model to either DMX or SMD, it says

"WARNING: 1042 verts on "*body part name*" have over 3 weight links. Source does not support this!"

the model is ported from BO:CW if it is of any help.

Does anyone know how to export a blender model as a "vmf" file?
EmperorFaiz.rar Feb 3, 2020 @ 2:38am 
He meant the surface of the faces of the model not normal map.
Lyric4l Jan 25, 2020 @ 6:36am 
I do not have normal maps for my materials
Merydian Jan 25, 2020 @ 1:57am 
most likely inverted normals

ArcticSnowPup Dec 20, 2019 @ 4:00pm 
I got it
I had to rename the dmx to say idle, then export that. Go back and retry to compile the model.
ArcticSnowPup Dec 20, 2019 @ 3:42pm 
Here is the console error

I am having trouble compiling my qc file
Artfunkel Nov 24, 2019 @ 2:16am 
The first link is part of a QC file that is used to compile the model. The second is an SMD file that contains data. Totally different things.

So, I'm having this problem lately. whenever I'm trying to export smd in blender 2.8 it's saying "scene unconfigured. See the SOURCE ENGINE EXPORT PANEL in Scene Properties".
Where is this scene properties??
I'm a noob in this things. So please help me out.
thank you

It seems, after 3.0 update, It became impossible to export the armature.

At the moment i'm encountering a lots of bug every time i bake the texture, does it occurred with anyone also? i think i should wait for the final product before i could use its full potential.

Ok, I have a question. I have installed the Blender Source Tool into the Blender, it works but the only thing is, it only exports, doesn't import SMD files. I'm trying to grab some models and it won't allow me to import them to grab. A little help please?
Boxic Jan 16, 2018 @ 10:12am 
Hey modders, I'm willing to pay for a model of a cardboard cutout of a friend of mine, with a little stand in the back. Like the Andruha model on the workshop, but a playermodel. Easy enough?

I'll be providing a photo-shopped image of the isolated person.

Can do paypal. Or maybe a steam game? :)

Hello, I cant seem to download blender source tools, everytime I go to it, it says "404" The requested URL /BlenderSourceTools/ was not found on this server.
When it doesnt say that, its just a saved copy of the download button, you click it, and it does the samething as above. Any help?
