[Release] ArtStation MView File Exporter (script+noesis)

Post by majidemo » Mon May 15, 2017 9:42 am

Today I saw this post. The OP got into my nerves for dissing at shakotay2, a member I highly respect.

To prove the OP wrong I decided to check out how to unpack the mview file. With zero previous knowledge about the format I checked the link shakotay2 provided and it was in fact quite helpful.

I then proceeded to write a parser and converter in about 30 minutes. This proved that the OP was completely ignorant for saying shakotay2's link was useless.

So, here are the scripts I wrote for unpacking the mview files: DOWNLOAD SCRIPT & NOESIS PLUGIN.

Others might find it useful as I don't have any use for it.

Cheers!

EDIT: A Noesis plugin is also available:

I noticed that people are still using this. I haven’t updated this for awhile now. But, if someone wishes to contribute in fixing the reported bugs feel free to make a PR.

Does this extract the bones for animated files also?

**EDIT I was successfully able to extract static m.view files but the animated ones give off the error below:

NOESIS PYTHON ERROR

Traceback (most recent call last):
File"C:\Users BLAH BLAH BLAH..\fmt_artstation_mview.py", line 19 in loadModel
files = extract(bs)
File "C:\Users BLAH BLAH BLAH\fmt_artstation_mivew.py", line 136, in extract
files[ftype}.append({ "filename": name, "data": bin })
KeyError: 'animData/mset'


I'm not after the animations so much, just the preservation of the bones so the characters can be configured for a default T-Pose..

Any help greatly appreciated...

I am wondering about the same thing. Would be cool if the creator of this script could give us a hint here. Cheers and thx for your work anyways!

This may be a dumb question, but why not just use the python batch file :? It should still pull static model and convert to obj even with animated mview. All you need is 32-bit python 3.6.1.
