View Full Version : MDD files

04-02-2010, 07:25 AM

newbie-ish question :lwicon:

Is there a tutorial or a thread somewhere explaining how to create and export an mdd file for an animation created in LW ? Is it attached to the mesh (or to the scene) ?

from the manual...

Double-click MD_Plug after it has been added on the Deformations Tab of the Object Properties Panel to display its Options Panel.

...there's nothing to it really

for newbie stuff like this the manual is your best bet. ;]

You can also use the motion scanner from ClothFX (ClothFX > file tab > Scan Motion). Just add ClothFX to your object and scan the motion. A pop-up screen will appear where you want to save the MDD file. Remove ClothFX when you're done.
It's very stable and it's newer than MD_Plug, so I always use this.

Thanks for the answers. I did search the manual, couldn't find that quote.
