Event Timeline

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Needs Information from User.Nov 15 2018, 1:16 PM

Please attach a .obj file to reproduce the problem, as I guess this does not happen with any file.

Hi Brecht,

That is correct. Most obj files I have imported to 2.8 now work fine. Here's the offending obj.

This obj also produces the same error:

when I export this obj from 3ds max as obj... it imports into blender correctly.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) raised the priority of this task from Needs Information from User to Confirmed, Medium.

Cannot reproduce with the Adidas2.obj alone.
Mind uploading the Adidas2.mtl as well?

Can confirm an error with the VW (but it is a different one...)

I've commited rBAa0e769eeb3603a30caf663c97f833f569e757b5f and rBcfb6f14616ecd96831815b48c7edfdd706ddcf2e now.
These should fix the VW Bus.

For The Addidas [the original report]:
@danny austin (dannysetvisions): there are probably imagemaps as well, but thats fine for now...

There is still something wrong with the ImageTexture/Normalmap node not being created in the Adidas case...

@Bastien Montagne (mont29): is this because of the lazy init? could you have a look?

Bastien Montagne (mont29) closed this task as Resolved.Nov 16 2018, 3:12 PM

Addidas file now imports OK, so think we can close that one.

Great work you guys!!! That was FAST

I've had a support ticket in with Autode$k for 3 months now... I still haven't heard anything. lol

Hi folks, it seems exporting from instant mesh gives this below error.
We can eliminate it by un-checking split by > Object | Group.
or using Keep vert order.
In Blender 2.79 checking those are working correctly.
In Blender 2.8 Before May 26, 2019 it was working correctly too. But after that it's broken.

@Fahad Hasan (cgvirus) Please check recent reports first, and do not re-activate old ones like that… FYI, it's reported in T65326.
