I would like to see as many star trek and Babylon 5 meshes to be converted
to OBJ for DAZ Studio or COB file to Truespace as you guys can do.

Thanks

Loads of Poser conversions of Star Trek ships by mattymax...

That is the only site I know that possibly has what you need..... at the moment I have no time to help with conversions and there is the authors read me file may not allow said conversions.

is there anything in particular you looking for. ?

O i am a member of Foundation 3D
I was hoping that some of the meshes here could be converted primary to Truespace

If it's a Lightwave mesh, you can use Blender to import and convert it to .obj. Then you can either just open it like a normal mesh or import it into trueSpace using the Luuv plugin. Though, it will import into tS all in one untextured chunk and you'll have to decompose it and then go mad trying to figure out what all fits together and where the textures go (but it's doable.) If it's Max, you're screwed. You'll need something like Deep Exploration, which costs a lot of money.

Can you be more specific, what models here would you like to see converted so we can check there readme files to see if conversions are even permitted, I can see if its possible then

Excelsior B: looks OK to convert
USS Surya: looks OK to convert
Valley Forge Class: looks OK to convert
Dawnstar Class: OK to convert
ISA Excalibur: looks OK to convert

So I will ask a friend if he can convert them, it make take time as he is working on other projects.

also if he is able to convert them.. they are not to be host on other sites they are for your private collection.

They could be hosted here as some are Warriors and other members.

I will let you know as soon as I can.

Most exports I have seen you still need to reattach the textures yourself ..... some times UV maps are ok but not always as EG180 mentioned

Lightwave can export to obj directly

I don´t used Truespace or blender, EG180 could tell you far better about the process. I only use Lightwave.

I have not spoken yet about the conversions to my friend that could take a few days

So did I when I tried it.... but will will try to help when we can.....
many of us are working on other projects and conversions take time,,,, you will have to spend time tweaking the models.... that takes the most time.

But its a good way to learn about the software .... that is what I found .... in fact working on EG180s meshes
