It would be great if you could batch import more than one .obj file at a time.

Can you give me a use case here?

Sure, I’m currently importing 60+ models and it’s taking me all day. Especially with the need to constantly restart in order to rename them.

You know that adding just o tag with a name in obj file would lead to propper naming.
A simple local script in php, little AIR app or whatever script you preffer would save yopu all these edits once file is loaded.

That having said, Prefab has already a command line listener active en indeed some batch features could be handled this way. Thinking about it, that’d be quite a nice addition…

Apologies for being obtuse but could someone please elaborate on how to add an o tag to an obj file? I’d be happy to write a php script or air to do a batch convert if I only knew what syntax to use for the file smile

simply add char o+1 space+name before the first v tag

Thanks Fabrice, much appreciated. I was hoping that this might change the file name as well when exporting as an awd2. I’ve got about 3500 .obj files I’d like to convert to awd2 so here’s hoping a batch convert option comes out soon smile

The next update I’m currently working on, means lots of work. Unfortunatly, unlike most of my updates in the past, I cannot release this one in steps spreaded over a few updates. However, even if the batch functionality is already partly implemented, I cannot garanty atm that it will be part of the very next release as there are a few annoying bugs with higher priority that I would preffer see gone first.
