Importing trueSpace objects
« http://littledelightscakes.com/annegret-conrad-dissertation/ Annegret Conrad Dissertation on: June 21, 2010, 03:09:39 PM »
I would like to import trueSpace 7.6 object files into Terragen 2. Is there a direct method or even a conversion software I can use. I searched the forum, but didn't find any explicit info. Thanks for an exceptional forum.

I'm pretty sure you need to export it as an "obj" type.  I used a free plugin to do that when I used TS 6.6.  I just looked at 7.6 and realized how hard (at least for me) it is to find what I'm looking for -- hovering over a myriad of icons.  ;D http://www.recette-maigrir.net/phd-thesis-service-marketing/ Phd Thesis Service Marketing

I have successfully imported models from Truespace 6.6. Here is how I did it. First in truespace triangulate the mesh, this is important to stop holes in the mesh caused n-gons, then export to 3ds (TS 6.6 has no obj exporter). Then import the mesh into Poseray and save again as .obj, now you can import into Terragen.

Well, I know I was able to export OBJ from TS 6.6.  I used this plugin: http://pinacoderm.com/tsx/luuv/

I believe the Microsoft free release of TS 7.6 included that plugin, but will have to check.

[edit] Yes, it does.  Take a look in your ts/tsx directory.

I was able to export a tS object just fine. What's the easiest way to convert to terragen object format?

Don't have any other graphic software, but a few years ago there was a free viewer, converter software for many types of 3d files. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Load your obj into Terragen and then go to the node network and find the Object block.  You should see your obj listed.  Right click on it and do a "Save object file..."  This will save it as a .tgo
