[3DSMAX|REL] OpenIV openFormats I/O

Recommended Posts

Alexander Blade

 

Thanks for the clarification Alexander.

 

About the part where you say not to use this on GIMS prepared files, is it only for the openformats that GIMS created?

 

What if I have a scenario like this: Export model to .odr using GIMS, then turn it to .wdr using openIV. Then I turn that .wdr to .odr using openIV. Will OFIO be able to read the resulting .odr? Technically it isn't quite GIMS file anymore, it is more similar to any other odr you import from Rockstar.

For drawables you will definitely get broken normals in some places after export + import because of vertex optimizations which gims and ofio perform , so it's not an option to do so . You can try remaking the scene for ofio by replacing all mats and recreating ofio hierarchy with proper ofio user props for each scene object .

 

-------

Interesting stuff about ped anims is that one of the unkown blocks ofio doesn't process is being used for triggering game events like shooting , never saw in any games before that animation by itself can trigger such things

Thanks, so I guess I need to back up my 3ds max scene when it haven't been touched by GIMS.

 

Anyhow, can I export odr without centering the model on 0,0,0 coordinates. Because GIMS aitomatically does it. Also, for odr that has lights attached, will OFIO auto center the lights to 0,0,0 with the model it is attached to? GIMS have this weird bug where only the model gets centered but the lights stay at original position.

So I take it that I don't need to manually move my model to the 0, 0, 0 coordinate and that OIFO does it like GIMS. Cool smile.gif

 

 

Thanks again. icon14.gif

I'm going to step here lol sorry.

I think it might be because it is a GIMS exported odd.

But the problem is that he tried my Ghost Rider odd and it worked which I exported with GIMS.

One of my animations is glitching out it works fine in 3d max but when I export the skeleton it seem to do some extra stuff that I didn't add in the animation.

печальбеда, try to solve your own problems, nothing to do with the scripts, pay attention to the details of your animation, you might have done something wrong. Check keyframes and bone index.

Well if that was the case I wouldn't be here posting as I already checked all 160 key frames and played it in slow motion in 3d max the issues doesn't occur in 3d max only in game and open iv after exporting. So before I start ranting please take your trolling else where if you don't have anything to say to contribute to a solution don't bother saying anything at all.

for anims

changing model position/rotation works the way it should in the game only for peds , so if you need to move model then move root bone instead

 

for models

moving means nothing , u need to move model center , not the model itself

Do you mean you want the object to be lower on the map? If so, just changing the model's Z won't work, you have to change the wpl.

 

Don't know did I understood you correctly though. blush.gif

Its the wpl. The wpl is what places the object on the map. Move the object to its location on the map including placing it 1m below. Export wpl using GIMS.

lol thanks a lot limiter but when i was talking of being newbie it's with 3 DS max , i know what is a wpl biggrin.gif . the object i want to modify is a procobj and thus does not work exactly as static wdr (if i remember well) . but i can't find that text helper that was in a txt file and explained it all anymore (like the header in handling.dat that explains how handling should be tweaked) . i have 2 questions in fact how do you lower a wdr in Max so that it has a part of it burried by default IG . and where has gone that text helper made by R* , and that explained how procobj works
