Not sure if this is the issue, but when I open an exported tree in UltimateUnwrap3D, it doesn't appear to have bones. It would have to have bones in order to be animate, I would assume.

I'm pretty sure it is done with a vertex shader. I tested the FBX export and checked in Blender - the vertex colors are there now. It would be great to see the source code for the shader that the developer used - at least the animation part.

EDIT - I found it, it is in the shaders section on the website! woo hooo :D

The OBJ export files also have vertex color information that contains wind information.
Each OBJ vertex contains 7 values. The first three make up the position, the remaining 4 values are storing the vertex color (RGBA).

The shaders used can also be found inside the program's folder:
Sys\Tree It\leaf.fx
Sys\Tree It\tree.fx

I believe the RGB value store the wind information. The Alpha value might store the ambient occlusion information, but I am not sure.

The .DBO files store additional information in the 2nd and 3rd texture coordinates. E.g. the Leaf Shading colors are encoded there.

is it somehow possible to export the Windinformation by like storing the Windweight information into the https://www.clevescene.com/cleveland/ra ... d=37669434 Vertex Colors so that it can be imported to other 3rd party tools like blender?

Hello Have either of you figured it out yet?
