Batch model export

Postby doc555 » Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:57 pm

Is there any way to batch export mhm files to fbx instead of I must load and export individually? I think for example command line solution or any other way.
Thanks.

No, there is no such functionality atm.

But I recently adapted the MHAPI plugin to have an export API: https://github.com/makehumancommunity/c ... gins-mhapi

With this, it should be reasonably easy to write a script (for example in the utility->scripting tab) to iterate over files in a directory and export them.

This is a code outline and not tested:

Code: Select all
from core import G
mhapi = G.app.mhapi
human = mhapi.internals.getHuman()

human.load("/full/path/to/mhm/myHuman.mhm", True)
mhapi.export.exportAsFBX("/full/path/to/output/myHuman.fbx")


Note that this currently requires that you have manually downloaded MHAPI, as the exports subset of the API was added after the release of alpha 2.

Thank you for your info.
I tried the code but I got this error message:
"The script produced an exception: 'API' object has no attribute 'exports'"

Which I think means you didn't update to the latest MHAPI.

Or you could wait a few days and download alpha 3 when it is released. It will include the latest MHAPI.
