Wings3D BZW Export : HELP!

Post by Spectre » Thu Jul 03, 2008 7:53 pm

I have Wings3D running on Debian Linux, and I downloaded and installed on wings the plugin for exporting as BZW. How do I do the export? Is it supposed to be under File->Export? If so, why isn't it?

The plugin doesn't work on the newer versions. The way I get around it is just to open the .wings file up in 0.98.34 and export from there. :/

Google is very useful! :D

I don't know if this version will work on Linux, but 0.98.34 is the latest version I've tried that works on my mac. If it doesn't work, download some other versions until you get one that works.

export as obj file and then use modeltool to convert to bzw. i find it to be much easier. That way you can use any 3d modeler that can export to wavefront (.obj).
