View Full Version : Can I export vertex colour information?

11-07-2011, 09:51 AM
Hi All,

I am wanting to export an .obj file from modeller but I want it to keep its vertex colour info.

Is this possible in lw? I am happy to export as any format really...i just need to keep the vertex colours.

I know i could probably bake it to a texture, but that kinda defeats the point of the vertex colouring. Trying to avoid the use of textures altogether.

Thanks in advance.

In OBJ file format specification I can't see any information about vertex colors, so I think it doesn't support it.

Are there any other formats I could use to export, which keep the smoothing and vertex colour info?

I'm actually trying to export from lw to udk, which reads fbx files. Only problem is, exporting fbx from lw does include smoothing or vertex colours.

Now just trying to export as anything that keeps this info, import into blender and export fbx from there.

Is there an easier way?
