Phriction Wiki Game Support | Black Ops 3 Basics Import models from Call of Duty games
Creating XMODEL_EXPORT through Maya:
- Open the newly created .MA file in Maya, and if needed apply the bindfile (.mel) generated by Wraith.
- Using CODMayaPlugin, export your scene.
- CODMayaPlugin can be downloaded here.
- Select your meshes and joints, and go to Select > Select Hierarchy.
- Go to Call of Duty Tools > Export XModel.
- Select where to export, and what to name your export by pressing the ..., and press Export Selected.
- This will create an .XMODEL_EXPORT file, you're now done in Maya.
- Download Kronos, which can be found here.
- Black Ops III uses XMODEL_BIN compared to previous installations, where XMODEL_EXPORT was used, so it'll need to be converted.
- Drag and drop your XMODEL_EXPORT onto the MODELS tab to create an XMODEL_BIN:
- Copy your newly created XMODEL_BIN into BO3root\model_export.
Importing model into APE:
- Open APE (Asset Property Editor).
- Go to File > New GDT and give an appropriate name.
- Right click the newly created GDT and select New Asset.
- Give the appropriate name, and select xmodel as asset type.
- Under the entry properties for your newly created asset, find LODs and under LOD0 press ....
- Locate your XMODEL_BIN to set the file path. For example: modme_tutorial\t6_wpn_zmb_raygun2_upg_view_LOD0.XMODEL_BIN.
- In the preview window your model will appear with a blue and green texture, this means it's missing a texture.
- You'll need to create Materials, which is covered here (coming soon).
Easily create materials for your model:
- While viewing your xmodel entry, you can easily create the missing materials by pressing New Image:
- And that's it! If you've done everything correctly, your model should appear with proper textures, just like this one!
