so i see it has a option in the pic to set the object properties for the fbx as a character. Would it then recognize the animation on the right under animation LOD? How do you setup directional animations such as Jump,Left/right turn,random animations to trigger via a button on the keyboard? For example is there a slot for each direction and the ability to make custom slots?

Animations are bound to the skeleton and there can be only one skeleton for character, so it will work for all LODs without any additional work.

How do you setup directional animations such as Jump,Left/right turn,random animations to trigger via a button on the keyboard? For example is there a slot for each direction and the ability to make custom slots?

Every animation has its own file and can be imported alone if you check the 'import animation only'. There will be character controller accessible in script, where you will be able to set animations for idle/run/jump/... + blending params etc.

It should be able to import FBX from all Max versions.

While I was working on animation system I gradually realized that COLLADA simply isn't viable for the task. There are lots of issues in plugins for max/maya/blender which make it almost impossible to get a proper DAE file (with skinning and animation etc.) from these tools. So FBX importer was born. I made a new user interface because the old one was a little bit limiting for the FBX and not very intuitive, what i missed the most was a good hierarchy viewer and stats about meshes, animations, an easy way to rename stuff etc.

Here is new importer UI (it is not final, missing a few options and needs little polishing)



Awesome angrypig! Is this something I can get my hands on soon?  I am itching to start buying some vegetation models to import into Outerra.

Hello, is your FBX importer (even in alpha) already " reachable "somewhere in the last version ?
Cheers
