Animation:Master Interchange: How to integreation A:M in your workflow

For a long time it has been a troublesome thing to integrate A:M in your existing 3d workflow / pipeline. That has changed with the new genious Blender plugin. With this plugin you can export MDL files from Blender. It can not only export geometry (which was always the hardest thing to do) but it can export UV informations and even Bone-Information. It is planned to add import of A:M's action files into Blender too.

That will enable whole new working methodes for A:M users and other 3d-software users how you can see in the picture. In the shown workflow I export an model from A:M to blender using the OBJ-exporter, use Blender's UV mapping features and export it with geometry and UV-informations back to A:M using the MDL-Exporter for Blender. In the next step I export it to 3dCoat for 3d-painting (using the OBJ-Exporter or the App-Interchange-plugin) save the textures out and use them in A:M to final render that boy. (and if you want to use Blender for rendering, that is possible to using the MDD-exporter from A:M in combination with the OBJ-exporter)

This possibilities are really a god sent and I just have to bow to the programmers nemyax, Malo and Styler from the A:M forum for that extraordinary accomplishment. With the deep knowledge of nemyax concerning Blender and the deep knowledge of Malo about the A:M format those two have made it possible to create such an workflow and to open the more or less closed world of A:M for others.

Thank you VERY much and my deepest respect for that accomplishment!

How to use Animation:Master in a 3d-Workflow / Pipline?

You are using Google Chrome...

Do you know that Google is known for not respecting your privacy and using your data without really asking for it?
For instance Chrome will scan your computer and the files you saved on it, transfers data about your internet surfing to Google and creates a extensive profile about you as a Chrome user while combining those data with all other services of Google.

Additional information can be found here: Why you should not use Google products if you can avoid it.

Because of that I highly recommend using another browser:


If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
