FBX Import: Fix failed to open FBX if it contains multibyte properties.

Authored by dano min (danomin) on Apr 17 2019, 4:47 PM.



The following errors may occur if FBX contains multibyte properties:
"KeyError: 'ID property name length is limited to 63 characters"

The file where the problem occurred is here.

My patch avoids this problem as follows:

  1. First replace the invalid byte. And get the correct byte length.
  2. Discard the last invalid byte generated when cutting out 55 bytes.

Decodeing with 'replace' may increase the byte length.
This is because invalid bytes are replaced with 3-byte REPLACEMENT CHARACTER (0xEF 0xBF 0xBD, U+FFFD).

ex)  Use the first 4 bytes, but get 6 bytes
b1 = 'ああ'.encode('utf-8')            # b'\xe3\x81\x82\xe3\x81\x82'
s  = b1[:4].decode('utf-8', 'replace') # 'あ�'
b2 = s.encode('utf-8')                 # b'\xe3\x81\x82\xef\xbf\xbd'
len(b2)                                # 6
