We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

How to use RWR voxel editor

From Running With Rifles Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

this is explained on running with rifles forums topic: [1] this is copy pasted text from the first post by pasik:

Here's some hints for the usage:

  • Launching
   rwr_editor.exe [model XML file] [animation XML file]
   * When launching the editor, an OGRE dialog pops up:
select the Rendering subsystem, there's only one choice.
I'd also recommend using the tool in non-fullscreen mode. Click OK to run the editor.
   * If the editor is launched without command line parameters, the editing happens on a model file "new.xml".
If such file doesn't exist, it will be created when the model is saved.


  • Keys and other tips:
   * General:
       ASDW: move around
       Left shift + ASDW: move around faster
       Left shift + Mouse: turn camera
       Ctrl-S: save both model and animation files
       1: Model view
       2: Animation view, can be used only if the editor has been launched with a model with a skeleton
       O: experimental magic tool that can be used to remove voxels that can't be seen from anywhere
-- takes a long time to process, better save before doing this, not 100% foolproof, may also end up removing wrong voxels
       ALT-F4: quit :)
   * Model view:
       * Edit voxels -tool:
           Left mouse button: add voxel
           Right mouse button: remove voxel
       * Select voxels -tool:
           Left mouse button drag:
               1# define a rectangle selector for voxels
               2# drag voxels around using the axis handles
       * To paint voxels, click on the current color indicator panel
       * When working with a model with a skeleton, and making modifications to the model,
        click "Re-bind skeleton" to attach the new voxels to the skeleton
   * Animation view:
       Left and right arrows: previous / next keyframe
       Up and down arrows: previous / next animation
       * Select & move -tool:
           Left mouse button drag:
               1# define a rectangle selector for bone points which will be made movable
               2# drag single bone point around and the other movable points will follow
       * To add a keyframe, click on the timeline, and displace a bone point
       * Currently, there's no playback button: simulate playback by dragging the timeline slider
