Simple export question

Hey fellas

Im trying to export a model from Moi into another package. Im having problems separating parts for different materials. I have done this before, however it was quite some time ago and I thought that if I only color-label them like the picture shows it would work.

Doesnt seem to work though, it comes in as one thing with no material-separation. Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers
Nick

Hi Nick, currently materials are only written to OBJ and LWO formats, are you possibly using a different file format than that?

Hi Nick, materials should come through to C4D using OBJ format.

Did you possibly disable the settings in MoI for "Write material assignments" or "Write .mtl file" ? Those are checkboxes under Options > Import/Export .

Is an .mtl file being created?

What about any import settings in C4D, have you checked there to make sure importing materials is not disabled there?

If you're using an older version of C4D I seem to remember that the built in OBJ importer wouldn't read in the material color but would get the material list and assignments ok.

Im not sure what was wrong, but it worked when I pasted the same model into another file and then exported again.

Thanks for the help though Michael! As always :)
