Object Sequence Loader Python Script for Vue

A python script for Vue 5 Infinite (it might work in Vue 4 Pro but I haven’t tested it) that loads a sequence of 3d files using each one in turn as the next step in an animation. To use it the script must be placed in the directory containing the files to be imported and then run in the usual way. The files must be named sequentially starting with 1 and counting upwards. You will be prompted for a file type to be imported (enter the appropriate file extension) and a number of frames between importing each file.

It looks pretty straightforward but I had to find ways to stop keyframes vanishing and to stop the objects being scattered around all over the scene.

I would suggest saving any scene before running the script as it can crash Vue if you load a large sequence of complex objects or with objects with large texture maps.

For the latest information see the page devoted to Vue Object Sequence Loader.

Unfortunately I don't have Realflow so I can't explain how to create the file sequence. I created it using a sequence exported from a trial version which expired nearly four years ago. Good luck.

You might also want to take a look at this thread at Cornucopia 3D for another attempt to support Realflow in Vue.

I forgot to mention that I'm using Vue 7.5 and Realflow 4

Hi,
I'm currently working on a project, and I need to import Realflow mesh into Vue. But the exported mesh from Realflow is *.bin, and I believe the "Object sequence loader" python script needs the file sequence to be *.Obj?
How do I solve this problem?
Thanks a lot in advance and I hope you reply ASAP! :)

Hello,

great idea! Would be nice if it also would work with Vue 6 and RF4

Greetings
