About

This is the page for the new WIP Blender 2.5 Exporter. This page will mainly be used for updating development status, UI design and basic script ERD. As of now it will be empty until I start putting some stuffs up. Eventually this page will be restructured to follow the convention of the old Blender Exporter page with the development stuffs in a new page of it's own. But as of now, it will stay this way until we have a release candidate to show.

NOTE: There is now a rudimentary build of the exporter for download at the above link.

Repository location: ogre/Tools/Blender2.6Export(external link)

However, if you want a full featured exporter while waiting for this one, you may want to get your hands on the unofficial exporter. It works pretty well, though a little bloated on the UI front. Some may find it more intuitive than others.
