Modo would be nice but I think that there is no silo 2.0 sdk access at the moment. I really hope Silo wakes up someday. It's great program.

Nice it looks like there is a new forum section dedicated to applinks -

Yeah same here i think it's great also. I think V1 has a SDK though, i actually still use V1 with a custom layout still as i have V2 beta installed but it is still buggy. I noticed they have a iphone app now so the company is still staying around which is good, hopefully they will get focus back to silo and also make a V2 SDK.

Hi Andrew,

I'm updating Maya Applink to latest specification. I didn't get several things in doc1.3. Could you clarify?

Update 1.2:
Import.txt may have additional options in additional lines of the file.

// Should it be a path to the folder with ALL textures? Will 3d coat automatically understand textures extension?
[TexOutput:… texture path there…] allows to specify textures output path. It should end with “\” or “/”

// is it just a binary flags like "Do i want to export 'color' texture from App to 3dcoat?"
ExportColor=(0|1)
ExportSpecular = (0|1)
ExportNormalmap = (0|1)
ExportDispl = (0|1)
PickSourcePositions = (0|1)
ickDepthFromLayer0 = (0|1)
CoarseMesh = (0|1)

// This part is clear
DisplDepth = (8 bits, 16 bits, 32 bits)
DisplNorm = (GREYBASED, ZEROBASED, ZEROBASED_NORM, ZEROBASED_ABS)

// Do we provide here extensions for ExportColor, ExportSpecular.. and other guys which have textures specified by TexOutput path?
DisplExt = ( BMP,TGA,PNG for 8 bit displacement, TIF for 16 bit displacament, TIFF, EXR for 32 bit displacement )
ColorFileExtension = (TGA, BMP, PNG, JPG)
SpecNormExtension = (TGA, BMP, PNG, JPG)
ExportResolution = (LOW-POLY, MID-POLY)


It will be nice to have an example with descriptions

No difference - / or \
It is path for textures folder where textures will be saved when 3D-Coat exports objects with textures.
Textures extension will depend on other options.

// is it just a binary flags like "Do i want to export 'color' texture from App to 3dcoat?"
ExportColor=(0|1)
ExportSpecular = (0|1)
ExportNormalmap = (0|1)
ExportDispl = (0|1)
PickSourcePositions = (0|1)
ickDepthFromLayer0 = (0|1)
CoarseMesh = (0|1)

It are options from the export dialog File->Export

// Do we provide here extensions for ExportColor, ExportSpecular.. and other guys which have textures specified by TexOutput path?
DisplExt = ( BMP,TGA,PNG for 8 bit displacement, TIF for 16 bit displacament, TIFF, EXR for 32 bit displacement )
ColorFileExtension = (TGA, BMP, PNG, JPG)
SpecNormExtension = (TGA, BMP, PNG, JPG)
ExportResolution = (LOW-POLY, MID-POLY)

Open file->Export and see correspondence, that are fields from this dialog

Hi Andrew!

 

I found a bug with TexOutput.

 

My import.txt file from blender:

/home/mifth/3D-CoatV4/Exchange/BlenderSimple3DCoat/export.obj
/home/mifth/3D-CoatV4/Exchange/BlenderSimple3DCoat/import.obj
[ppp]
[TexOutput:/home/mifth/Desktop/2223/aaa/]
And i got textures.txt from 3DCoat:
None
None
color
/home/mifth/Desktop/2223/import_None_color.png
None
None
normalmap
/home/mifth/Desktop/2223/import_None_nmap.png
The path for textures should be "/home/mifth/Desktop/2223/aaa/". "aaa" folder is missed.
3DCoat 4.0.3, linux.

Andrew,

 

I also found that [voxcombine]  mode does not work. It makes nothing. It even does not import models. 

Can you check it?

 

I tried like this for import.txt:

/home/mifth/3D-CoatV4/Exchange/BlenderSimple3DCoat/export.obj
/home/mifth/3D-CoatV4/Exchange/BlenderSimple3DCoat/import.obj
[voxcombine]
[TexOutput:/home/mifth/Desktop/folder/]

Updated document to reflect changes in 4.0.08A - mostly related to ability to use PSD for color/specular export/import
