Build Status

Command line utility using the FBX SDK to convert FBX/Collada/Obj files to more runtime friendly formats. The FBX content is parsed into an in-memory datastructure. Pluggable writers then take this datastructure to generate the output. Send us a pull request if you want the writer for your engine/framework/app to be integrated. We'll build the converter for Windows, Linux and Mac.

The FBX parser is largely based on GamePlay SDK's encoder. We'll try to back-port any bug fixes or improvements.

  • -f -Flip the V texture coordinates.
  • -p -Pack vertex colors to one float.
  • -m <size> -The maximum amount of vertices or indices a mesh may contain (default: 32k)

Precompiled Binaries

You can download the precompiled binaries from http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/fbx-conv

The binaries are recompiled on any changes in the Git repository, via our trusty Jenkins instance, see http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com:8080/

On Windows you'll need to install VC 2010 Redistributable Package http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=5555

On Linux and Mac, we have to link to the dynamic libraries of the FBX SDK (libfbxsdk.so and libfbxsdk.dylib). We recommend copying libfbxsdk.so to /usr/lib on Linux. Otherwise you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH and set it to the directory you put the .so file.

There's also a Qt GUI wrapper and Java GUI around it.

Building

You'll need premake and an installation of the FBX SDK 2014. Once installed/downloaded, set the FBX_SDK_ROOT to the directory where you installed the FBX SDK. Then run one of the generate_XXX scripts. These will generate a Visual Studio/XCode project, or a Makefile.
