I suppose it's not a good idea to change blender's default rendering/editing behavior. So, in an effort to increase the chances of having my patch accepted by the blender devs, I made the change an option in user preferences, and it's off by default.

I did this both 2.49b:

and 2.5x:


I'm trying hard to follow good programming guidelines, and no one wants this in the official version more than me. I'm done with this project for now, but if there's anything else I can do to make this better, let me know.

Some links may have changed, please download from my page.

Hi Anthony

This looks like a really good (and necessary) improvement!

I'm just starting out using Blender (pretty bad interface for me to learn lol).

So I've just downloaded the 2.5 version of Blender from your website - is there anything else I need? (import script or something?)

Or can I just export the model from Moi, and (as long as i've enabled the preserve normals setting in blender) it will work?

Cheers!

Hi NightCabbage, you do also need an additional import script to go along with Anthony's build to get the best results.

There's some info and a link to Anthony's Blender import script here:

As far as I understand, Anthony's new "preserve normals" setting will make Blender stop throwing away the normals in circumstances where it used to like going into edit mode, or also when rendering.

But that setting doesn't have anything to do with the file import itself, you still need to use an importer that will be able to bring the normals into Blender in the first place (which the default set of importers do not handle).

In addition to Anthony's import script there is also an OBJ import script which I modified to not throw away the normals at the last step of the import like the regular one happens to do. That's available here:

I'm not quite sure if that OBJ one works with Blender 2.5 or only with Blender 2.49
