Dear friends,

We would like to introduce the first version of our FBX to Thea converter tool which enables you to convert FBX (as well as other file formats) to Thea Render format. Currently the version provided supports FBX, Collada, DXF and Alembic conversion with basic support for geometry, materials, lights. There is also basic animation support for models, lights and cameras but no deformation or scaling.

Download links:

Windows
Mac OSX
Linux


For any questions or issues related to this tool please reply to this thread or contact us at contact@thearender.com

Kind regards,
Manolis

Awesome - thank you!
For a moment when I read Alembic I thought me not being able to render animations with Thea would be finally solved - but then I read "no deformation or scaling". Too bad.
Any hope for these later? Especially with Alembic?
Since Lightwave3D is not supported by a plugin, it would be great to have other means to get animations across, even if more troublesome...

And: what was the reason for not building this directly into Thea Studio?

Cheers,

Tom

Tom we are definitely looking forward to expanding the feature set for Thea. Obviously we would like you to have everything you need. Having the functionality as a tool actually allows us to work in a more accelerated manner as we want to hear your feedback.

Is it very difficult to build an installer? Are we on a beta stage on the converter?

I also feel that it should be integrated into studio. Maybe after testing it and finding it's stable enough?

Please download and confirm if the issue is still there. Which antivirus software do you use?

Wow! Thank you! I used to convert fbx to obj files with autodesk fbx converter, but this is even better.

You're doing a great job! Greetings!
