    With the huge update to Blender I think I may need your script finally.  Can one export their character with skins over to Blender?  Like my Gino to make small corrections to the skin base and save out those corrections directly from Blender?  I was thinking of your script as a tool to content creation work flow.  

    Also I just downloaded your version 3 script for safe keeping.  Do I need the BlendBot zip and if so where do those files go?  

    Thanks so much

  • Will there be Octane support when importing into a Blender?

    if it's what you are talking about, the mcjTeleBlender4 pre-release is meant mostly for people familiar with mcjTeleBlender 3 that installed Blender 2.8

    eventually mcjTeleBlender4 will have its own instructions, but for now you can follow mcjTeleBlender3's instructions ( part of which are on the mcjTeleBlender2 page )

    if you mean mcjTeleBlender 3 which wont work with Blender 2.8 but did work since 2012 with versions 2.6 to 2.79 then 

    it's here https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts4/mcjteleblender3

    wow 43 pages now, where do I extract zip file to?

    Where to install
    mcjTeleBlender is a script for Daz Studio 3 and greater, we suggest you install it in your daz content folder example: C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ\Studio\content once installed it will be in the content/scripts/mCasual folder
    mcjBlendBot is a set of Blender-Python scripts used to import the scenes exported by mcjTeleBlender the mcjBlendBot package (zip) must be unpacked the current Blender version's "modules" folder typically :  C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.71\scripts\modules

    This is strait from Mcasual download site

    OK, I'll wait for version 4 to be released.  Thank you!

    Will there be Octane support when importing into a Blender?

    i will see, if octane uses the same materials node-trees as eever/cycles then it may be easy

    teleblender3 and mcjBlendBot will remain on the net for people that will still use blender 2.60 to 2.79 teleblender4 will have its own set of blender-python scripts ( that's what mchBlendBot contains ) and will only work with blender 2.8 and up .... the 2020"s are nigh!! i'm not familiar with what the vendors use to make theirfigures and props but blender may be able to import/export figures without changing the vertex order.

    i dont see an error message

    that's the script which is supposed to load the scene file ( .obj/.mtl )

    note that teleblender 4 is for Blender 2.8

    for earlier versions of blender get teleblender 3 ( url at the top of this forum thread )

    in the same folder as the python script ( c:\blender ? in your case ) there's a .bat file

    you could try starting  blender and the scene.py script using this .bat file

     

    Oops actually, judging by the script you show

    you are attempting to use mcjTeleBlender 3 with Blender 2.8, this wont work and it's the reason i'm developping TeleBlender 4

    Hi everyone i'vre got a problem with the script import

    somebody has the same issue?

    so teleblender 4 will simply set the Principled shader to metallic, 0.33 rough, Clearcoat 100% Clearcoat Roughness 0.0 no metallic flakes. Since TeleBlender has a way to re-use materials or borrow them from another blender file, the users will be able to use their bought or custom car paint shaders

    Oooh, nice thank you

  • Thanks for update version to Blender 2.80 . Working Perfect in my side .But I`m still wonder about eye reflection just like we`ve got in DAZ Studio Render .

    Should those reflection driven by Blender light or I should use another shader setup ?

    BTW there are free Eevee Comic shader from this link https://gumroad.com/l/JWdjJ

    .Would you publish tutorial how to make changes so we can use other shader setup especially toon shader like in link above?

    Thanks again

     

  • mCasualmCasual Posts: 4,160

     i didnt test if it still works (maybe not ) ... but the final release will support using and re-using materials from other .blend files

    the mat-lib and lib-map options

    for eye refloections there's different methods, some used "fake" reflections 

    for real reflections you'd probably need to tweak the shader in Blender, which is quite easy in Blender 2.8

    the "manual" for teleblender 2012 explains the lib-mat and mat-lib process

    Thank you for all your hard work and for sharing this with us. 

    Here is a quick experiment with the latest "mcjTeleBlender 4 Beta for Blender 2.8" script to export Sugatak's "Ninja Village" model from DAZ Studio 4.11 to Blender 2.8. I used the default settings, added a little camera movement and rendered everything using Eevee @ 1920x1080 (300 frames/3 min total render time).  This example is played at normal speed and then at half speed in reverse.

    It works great so far.  I noticed a few things that didn't transfer correctly by default, but I suspect that they can be easily fixed in Blender. :)

    Good News TeleBlender4 + Blender 2.8 works without the "collect maps" option . That's a blender-cycles render - The Messenger - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPjyq55poHo

    EEVEE BUMP MAP ISSUES

    TeleBlender 4 for Blender 2.8 and Up Still Very Beta -- Update

    Tuesday August 13th 2019 16:00 Release
    The latest BlenderBot for Blender 2.8 : MCJBLENDBOTFORBLENDER28BETA0357PM08132019.ZIP
    The Latest mcjTeleBlender 4 Beta for Blender 2.8 MCJTELEBLENDER4BETA160008132019.DSA
    new : reduced Bump strength looks less scary in Eevee

    BUT NOTE : The Water shader used on the eyes of genesis 8 look ok in Cycles but No-Good in Eevee, so you should replace them with uber Base and make use opacity/cutout

    ALSO NOTE: the bump map strength is now lower ( this change in teleblender ) but in EEvee render i still had to reduce it to 1/3 of it's value, i did it "manually" in Blender, but i could have done it "manually" in Daz Studio
