Hey guys! With all these Dust trailers showing Moros(es?) doing their orbital strikes and whatnot I was very eager to try to render a Moros in 3dsMax. Unfortunately (I don't know if this happens to other people) every time I try to open the Moros model in Tri-Exporter it crashes on me!

Anyway, I was wondering if someone was actually able to export this model at all, and if so would you be so kind as to post the obj. model and the folder with the DDS files for me please. I would be very grateful.

Hello forums

I'm currently creating a Eve Fan Trailer in Unreal UDK.

Thought Id share some progress im having with getting Characters and Ships into Unreal UDK from Eve.

Character WIP

Ive also created a Wip tutorial for Ships,

Ships Tut

I plan to make one for the characters as well, but be warned its rather more complicated.

I'll continue posting progress as it develops.

Shocked

My man, I literally drooled when I saw those characters in UDK... the quality is impressive! I would love to know more about your project and how you imported the character models into UDK so well.

@AK Thank you so much for the model! here is what I accomplished today with it, the reflections are a bit messed up but I'm getting close to the look I'm going for. Now if only I could find the model/texture for those large turrets. I've searched around in tri exporter but I can't really find a good turret model.

/me puts gun to head and pulls the trigger.

Makes my paltry efforts look like dog$hit.

That's serious talent.

Love to get access to one of your UDK models and plug it in to see where I can improve my process for UDK.

We just got a new 3-d printer at work and I'd like to test it out with some eve ship models however, I seem to be having the same issues as a few people on here and can't get TriExporter to run without immediately crashing.

Can anyone upload the model files for a hurricane, myrmidon, and naglfar? I have the tempest files from sifting through this thread and plan to print it soon. We also have photoshop so any files related to editing would be helpful as well (Just got it and want to try some 3-d editing, I've already played with blender some).

I'll post pics up after they're printed (shooting in a petition to see if ccp is cool with me printing them as I plan on keeping them for myself and not selling)

Also does anyone know the work around to get TriExporter running? I've tried it on both windows xp boxes (32 bit) and windows 7 (64 bit).

Win7 64-bit.

No problems...all I can tell you is I run it from a hard drive other than my operating system and the eve installation is on a 3rd hard-drive.

To test your problem, I deleted the Tri-exporter file and folder, cleaned the registry, downloaded Tri-Exporter 2009, dragged it into the hard drive folder, unzipped it and ran it.

It worked straight away. Just a mystery I guess.

Here's the link to your files though Linkage

Look forward to the pics.

All I can say is maybe try erasing it completely (this includes the registry entry with regedit) and install a fresh copy of 2009 from evefiles. Tri Exporter works fine for me on windows 7 64 bit. Also maybe try changing the compatibility mode.

Hello Chaps

Ive Uploaded a simple UDK map Linkage including the shader network for the apocalypse discribed in my Tutorial, The map also includes a basic light and post processing chain.

So all you should need to do is export the Apoclaypse mesh and textures from Tri Exporter, re-link the mesh and textures in UDK and you'll be good to go.

This Shader Network should be able to be applied to any ship, by replacing the various values with values from the desired Ship.RED file, The Material instance is used to avoid having to recreate the shader network for each Material and will instance any changes in the Master Material to all Instances.

Ive also added a new section on my Website with some WIP Stills of a Fan Trailer im currently working on.

Been playing with the blender compositor to try and create the engine effects and background. Still needs a little bit more tweaking and then I can start on the weapons effects.

BTW does anyone know of a good way to extract the turrets with the bones in a format that can be imported into blender? I can get by doing the work manually but it's a bit of a chore.

Hey guys, Been trying to use the Tri-Exporter.

A few questions and problems, I tried using many versions, tryign to find the latest, its quite hard to make sure i have both the program and granny2.dll

I got 4.2 and what I believe is the latest granny2.dll

I's there any reason the appropriate granny2.dll isn't sent with the latest version of the program?
another question, Does the tri exporter only view .tri files? or .Gr2 files too? I try and load a Gr2 and I unfortunately I get a
"Model not loaded"

I am a little confused because there is apparently UI updates, and program updates, and different versions of granny2 floating around
So anyhelp with having matching/latest granny2.dll is helpfull

I'm trying to get my hands on the Incarna files for the CQ, particularly the Pod.

Most probably because granny2 is owned by rad games and Selvin would get licensing issues as i suspect he doesn't own the RAD Game SDK.

Anyway,
My frist attempt on rending models using blender.
It's a Drake, and i've managed to extract Normal, glow, specular and the diffuse textures. Also, Paint textures are only available to ships that
  • have faction variants
  • have T2 variants


I'm trying to get reflections right, but caldari wouldn't be the correct choice then, as they are more rigid and less 'round' (thus prone not to reflect as much), also dark.

What do you think?

It's a good start and you have the basics down but you've got a bit of work to go yet :)


Some things that might help:

- Look at using texture & material nodes for the skin, it becomes much easier to extract and manipulate the image channels.
- Open each ships .red file and take a look in there, you'll find useful details on the ships material colours, mask colours, glow colours and turret / engine hardpoints (they're a bit messy to read initially but you get used to them quickly).
- Get GIMP 2.x with the .dds plugin to extract the paint maps (nearly every ship has one but blender can't open them for some reason).

Hope that helped.

Hey guys, I'm having problems applying the material for the new Maller model in 3DS MAX. The process I've been using with the other ships doesn't work for this one. I've been trying to fit it manually, messing with the tiling and rotation, but so far I got nothing. Any ideas?

Awesome, but what i worry about is the end animation, doesn't that revert to the same position a little bit too fast?
(What am i to judge, i'm still trying to figure out how to texture everything correctly)
Also this might be of assistance to you, explosion.zip (.red files)

i found where the capsule is. dx9/model/worldobject/capsule

Cheers, yeah I noticed the turrets reset a little too quickly after I had finished rendering but since it's only an experiment animation I'm not too worried about it.

For the textures have a read back through the thread, there are several very good guides (I used Kolath's guide when I first started). If you're using blender I can try to answer any questions you've got.

At the moment, i'm trying to properly render the trusters, so far so good. (Also, using faction masks for ships they're not supposed to be on, more pictures here)

Also, .red files should show the location of all needed textures, just export them using TriExporter

You can find the turrets under dx9 -> models -> turrets. The new turret models have a much nicer naming convention and are easier to find than the old models

For the deployment animation I had to manually break the turret model into the individual componenents I wanted to animate (the turrets base, the mount and the barrel).
I animate the behaviour of each component when the turret deploys and save the IPO curves as actions (it's really important to give each IPO and action a proper name or it'll get very confusing quickly).
Once the actions are saved I can remove them from the current turret model as they will be saved on that blend file for use later.

For the tracking animations I created an "empty" to act as the turrets target and then applied the "track to" constraints on each turret component that would need to move to follow the target. I also added the "limit rotation" constraint afterwards to ensure the components turned the right way to follow the target.

2/ How did you do the lens flares?



Using the glare node in the composite node editor with the "ghosts" setting.


Originally by: Lupus Hekki

3/ How did you do the lasers/projectile/energy?




Each weapon has its own process to produce the effect. For the laser it's a simple cylinder mesh stretched from the turrets barrel to its target. The cylinder is given a simple white colour and set to shadless.
To finish the effect I go into the compositor and apply a glare node set to streaks to the laser, then add the output of that node back into the existing image.


Sorry the descriptions are general but I'd be here all day doing a detailed guide and I don't fancy spending my weekend doing a full document of the process, I'll try update the above with some screenshots later than may help.

Ok, been using Triexporter with Cinema 4D since it came out. Wish I could say I was expert.

I've found some Incarna stuff, like the items in this image: IMAGE

But I can't figure out how to get the CQ room itself together. The floors are hell in Triexporter. I've also noticed I can't figure out the clothing textures for clothing, and many models, like monocles and the like don't show at all in Triexporter.

And like the rest of you, I see the work of Thomas M with UDK, and every dream I had of doing something epic gets shattered to bits. Man I wish I had that skill.

Anyway, if someone can help me figure out the non-ship stuff, would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all,

Been a bit AFK due to some RL issues that appear to be solved now (I am NOT looking forward to a second episode).
I have written tons of concepts on scribbled pieces of paper and my little notebook (the pen and paper type) and spent a good time of the past 2 weeks on my new rig trying all these things out.
New turrets and stuff is being *ehum* ... omitted for now.

This moves slowly, and it will take a good amount of time still for me to get done what I have set myself to achieve. But simply to let you know that I am still on it.
Should I ever give up or for whatever reason not be able to continue, I will most possibly pass on my WiP to someone here on the thread. But for now I am back.

Sorry for this setback.

--NaK
