Can't export armature/skeleton from Blender to Godot ?

thor_stenthor_sten Posts: 4Member

I played a bit with the GD-Quest 3D-Manequin in Blender 2.81 and wanted to make my own with simpler animations. For a start I made a really low poly stick-figure and added a very simple animation (just an "I'm-not-standing-totally-still"-idle).

Exporting it with Better Collada Exporter, gave me a lot of errors, without a file as a result.

Exporting it as GLTF2 worked, importing into Godot 3.2 stable worked as well, but the export is missing the skeleton/armature. Anybody got an Idea what I did wrong? An example of working export-settings would be nice as well.

    I have not seen it myself, but this video from GamesFromScratch is about how to export GLTF files using Blender 2.8, which may be show how to export the animations:

    In this Godot Q&A question, the poster there had issues with animations not showing up in exported files, and there is an answer there explaining some of the process.

    Didn't really help, but the Q&A might give some useful information. TY.

An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
