Default Strpix

Hi everyone

Question: is it possible to export from STRPIX an object in .MQO format with the original textures to be opened on Metasquoia?

Hello and thanks

No idea actually.
I always edit the object while it is untextured in Meta.
And then I fix the texturing once I import the edited object back into STRPix.

At least when using MQO files you won't have to retexture the entire object from scratch, like when exporting to .dfx.

Sorry but I didn't understand, as always

Question: could you explain to me how to do it?

I can't explain because I don't know how to do it. (if it is possible at all)
I never have textures on the object when editing it in Meta. The object is always white in Meta.

You canít edit textures in Metasequoia I think.

But if you export an object from Strpix as a .MQO file, edit the object in Metasequoia, then reimport it back into Stripix, you will not have to retexture the entire object, like you would do if used a .DXF file.

Dude, I've explained it to you in this post.
I'll explain in more detail then:
You'll need Strpix, TextureAdd, Metasequoia.
1. Open Strpix and your .wad > export the mesh you want to the separate folder (not to mess anything up) in .mqo format.
2. Open TextureAdd > Open the corresponding .wad > select in the menu bar Edit > Texture Pieces > Export All. Save all the texture pieces in the same folder as your previously exported .mqo file.
3. Open Metasequoia > Open this .mqo file. It should appear textured. But remember that you can't edit textures or add new in Meta. This procedure is for convenience only.
I hope it helps.
Oh, and if you're gonna edit the mesh and re-import it back into the wad, in Meta choose Save As > ver. 2.2. Otherwise you'll run into an error (at least I did).
