GLBasic Export/Konvert Thread

<< < (3/3)

To be fair not everybody uses Blender or updates to the latest version as soon as it is released. Judging by the version number 2.66a the a would represent alpha if they follow typical naming conventions, which some people skip until a stable version is released.

Thanks to your input of the converter not working with 2.66a it has bought to light a problem with the converter which obviously was not known before.

Looking at the API docs on Blenders site it seems that 2.55 was the start of the major changes to the API & they even say

--- Code: (glbasic) ---Warning: The Python API in Blender is UNSTABLE, It should only be used for testing, any script written now may break in future releases.
--- End code ---

While having a look at the API change log it only goes as far back as 2.56 which to me says things got a bit more stable and the main core was created. Searching the addons shipped with 2.66 nearly all of them have a version no older than 2.57 including the 3ds & OBJ ones which are formats that have been around a long time and are well documented.

The API is still yet to be completed but judging by the 3ds & OBJ exporters it may be that the relevant parts in the API for those functions are quite solid & subject to minimal change if any.


Generally more people use AC3D, which is rather good, but has no support for animation of any sort...

I dont know if you already tried this, but: GLB converter supports at least .3ds, .obj, .md2 and  .x. Did you try all of them if you can convert from Blender?
