Who Don’t Need It?
If Blender is your only toolchain, you don’t need this add-on.
Who May Need It?
Who need to import FBX files into Blender and export FBX files to game engines.
3d digital artists
Who need to share your 3d artworks to other 3d digital artists who use other 3d softwares, or you want to sell your 3d artworks in various digital markets.
What is it?
Blender is lack of native FBX support, when we import some older and newer FBX files, it often fails.
So I made a better FBX importer and exporter with official FBX SDK from scratch.
The add-on is compatible with all FBX versions, from ASCII to binary, from FBX 5.3 to FBX 2020.
I have tested the importer and exporter with about one hundred commercial FBX files which made by 3d digital artists in 3ds Max, Maya or Cinema 4D, the add-on can import and export these FBX files successfully.
The exported FBX and DAE files have been verified in Unity Engine 2019, Unreal Engine 4 and Godot Engine v3.2 with no issues.
