Description

Project: Blender Extensions

Blender: 2.62
Category: Import Export
Python: 3.1
Script name: Export Camera and Lights to Vue
Wiki page: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.5/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/VueCameraExport
Author(s): Ruchir Shah
Status: Open

The script will export all cameras and lights, their positions and rotations

Scene:
Exports render dimensions resolution settings

Cameras:
Exports name, focal length, position and rotations for each keyframe.

Lights:
Exports name, color, position and rotations for each keyframe

To use, run the py script in Vue.
Before running the script in Vue, ensure Auto-Keyframing (Timeline toggle button) is on and Always Keep Level (a camera toggle button) is off.

This script is based on the Campbell Barton script to export cameras and markers.
There are currently issues with precise match for the camera lens and fov settings.

fix for changes to the api added attatchment

Hi,
Due to changes to the api including the merging of bmesh, several addons are outdated.
Please, if you are the author of an addon check your script with blender revision 44256 or newer.
That is builds made After blender 2.62 official release.
I would ask that updates be made to your addon before the Blender 2.63 release.
6-8 weeks away.
This allows time for the api to become more exposed & bmesh to stablize furthur.
If you need help, drop into irc freenode #blenderpython or #blendercoders & feel welcome to ask questions.
At the time of 2.63 release, scripts that are not repaired or in active developement will have their tracker page marked "Closed"
this will not affect your links to the tracker, similar to closing scripts in 2.49b, the page will be still availible & can be re-opened.

Thanks for your understanding & patience during these Exciting Times.
Brendon.

hi, I'm unsure on the status of this addon,
could you please let us know if it's still working & functional

It probably works, and the lens issues might perhaps even be resolved, now that the Blender camera code has been improved.
At the moment however, i haven't got time to test it, so best if you mark it as closed.

hi,.
I'm closing this page for now. as part of 2.63 cleanup.
If you want to update & resubmit your addon please let me know & this page can be reopened easily.
Also note the page is closed but you can still use as a tracker page, only the status is closed.
Thanks for your addon & interest in Blender.
Brendon.

I've redone the script - it works fine now. Vue python has created some problems for me, but the script should work fine.

How can I amend the detailed description section here?

hi, thanks for updating, re-opened
you should be able to edit description, if not contact me in irc freenode #blenderpython
or comment your new description here & I'll update for you.
thanks.
