FBX export: Embedding textures does not work
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The attached blend file has a packed texture. If I try to use the Embed Texture option, the exporter try's to call open on it's path (textures\mohogany_light.jpg) instead of grabbing the packed data from bpy. If you unpack the data, the path is still wrong since the "" for a relative path is a Blender thing that Python doesn't recognized. In other words, the Embed Texture isn't using a cleaned path for the open() call. And, in the warning, "embeding" should be "embedding."

Committed changes in rBAdb6e3acd34cdbb74.

Still needs to be really tested, not quite sure this is working (my VM with Unity is kind of broken again, and FBX Converter seems to ignore our embedded textures :/).

Will disable this (optional) feature before release in case I can’t get it working in time.

The option works when exporting to Unity, but UDK doesn't seem to work to well with it. But, I'll just blame that on UDK. Packed texture still don't work, I get the following error when I try:

FBX export starting... 'D:\\Documents\\ExportTest\\Assets\\TCube.fbx'

Here is a simplified file (the texture should be packed):

Okay, looks like UDK works if I embed a texture with an image format it likes.

Hu, 'data' is a whole new prop I had to add to PackedFile today, so you’ll have to test it with current master (rB7ab602b730 or newer). ;)

Okay, I'll test it when the build bot next updates (I don't have build tools setup on this machine).

Would assume this one is fixed for now (99.99% sure it is :P), we can always reopen if not.

Just confirming that the Embed Texture option works with packed textures with a new enough build.
