import obj



  • I exported an .obj from Cinema 4D, but when I went to load it into Izzy, it woudn't import for some reason.  I have the texture file saved in the same location as the obj (as stated in the guide I read). I also tried downloading a model online and importing--that didn't work either.  When I click and drag nothing happens, and when I go to import media and bring up the finder, the obj doesn't even show up as a file I can import. (When I search, it doesn't appear because I guess it's just not an option.)  What might be causing Izzy not to accept an obj? I'm using version 3 by the way. 

    Update: I found out 3ds files work, but not obj.  Is there a reason for this? 

    Another part to my question:  Can I layer other video content over the 3D player output? I can't seem to figure out how I can get the model to display over a background movie.

    Hi,

    The 3D workflow is due for an update, and that includes compatibility with modern 3D mesh file formats such as OBJ. @Mark is aware of this, but it is also important that you show that you would like to see the 3D modules overhauled. Make it a feature request that the compatible 3D Object Mesh file formats are updated and expanded to include more of the most common file types.

    Best Wishes

  • @bonemap Thank you Russell for moving this to feature requests. I will continue to work with 3ds for now.

     Hi,

    Yes you can. Use the 'layer' properties to stack content when compositing.

     That would be quite a relieve!
