Batch conversion tool

12 posts in this topic

I need help to start a script-tool for Batch conversion to automate process of converting 3D models from one format to another.

I am using application UltimateUnwrap and I have folder with some 30 models in fbx format.

I need to convert them to obj format (f.e) so I need script which will call window to make some export settings first and then process all models from folder and save them as obj in same folder.

Maybe there is some simmilar script available :(

As I am completely new with Autoit I am willing to even hire some good programmer to make me such a script.

If you can help me please contacte me at info@dexsoft-games.com

Thank you

dexsoft,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :(

I need help to start

If you want to learn how to use AutoIt, then reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here - you will find other tutorials in the Wiki (the link is at the top of the page). There are even video tutorials on YouTube if you prefer watching to reading.

I am willing to even hire some good programmer to make me such a script

If you want code written for you, then you need to try RentACoder. Here we expect you to have had a go at solving your problems beforehand. Think of the old saying: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; give a man a net and you feed him forever". We try to be net makers and repairers, not fishmongers.

Over to you. :)

this is very nice said but I really dont have time to learn AutoIt. One frend recommend it to me that I can try to make such a tool, but I am just proecupied with current bussines :)

I badly need that tool :( to simplify my process of converting models.

I thought that here I could find someone to help me and make me that tool.

Just tried the ultimateunwrap now with its demo version. Since I was not having the fbx/obj format I couldn't start anything but it seems quite possible what you want. I cannot offer extended help since I do not have a valid licence key to do the file operations.

I wrote that just like example.

I need to convert one (usually LWO) format to 10 other formats so because of that it is very very hard to do that by hand. Imagine 30-50 model into 10 formats. That is couple of thousands of clicks.

If you really interested to help me please contact me on email or here because I have valid licence.

But also you can try with any format which is available in demo. I think there are 3-4 formats available in demo version so you can try to make any-to-any format conversions and we can just adopt it to real formats if that works.

So what I need is to have one window where I will have those 10 buttons. When I click for example OBJ button, I will get new same settings window like I have in program to setup options for obj export. When you choose those few check buttons program will process all files in folder with same setings for obj. UltimateUnwrap is good because it remembers when you setup export options so you need to setup only for first model, then settings are remebered for next model.

So far I worked with hand. Load LWO model and press SaveAs. Then standard saveAs window apear and I need to choose format to save (in my case OBJ), whne I press save I get settings windows where I have basic settings for OBJ export. Whne I select some check boxes from there and press OK model i saved. But as I said for all next models from folder settings are remembered so I need to setup only first time and then just press ok on save.

Thnx

It will be great help for me even if I load model in ultimateUnwrap and setup all export setings and then simply run script which only proceses all files from folder and resave in that selected format

I reall dont have desire to learn how to fish because I am not programer and it is another planet for me :(

I just need that tool if someone from this forum want to program it for me, of course not for free.

dexsoft,

For the second time - go and ask on RentACoder.

We do not provide code for hire here and do not take kindly to those who continue to ask after having been told.

hope you understand the hit here because its a little annoying the way your post your question.
