This is amazing! I can make animated mouths now!!!
I'll start by importing a mesh to see how it works.

EDIT1: The exporter returns an error when I export a mesh to rw4

I think I already helped her resolve it...we'll see soon. I hope.

(I hope I did - she's amazing at making part models O.O )

Congratulations of your first pre-alpha release it is working great for me. I was wondering whether you have implemented animated parts into it yet and if so how to use said feature.

Yes, it's already implemented:
1. Add a skeleton and rig it.
2. [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb152Qncn2s]Use the action editor to animate the models (the name of the animation is actually important, look at what other parts use).
3. In the right panel, go to the Scene tab (Image) There's a RW4 Config panel at the bottom, there you can choose which animations will be used as morph handles:

I am still having trouble getting the animation to work. I followed you steps and when I try to place it into the game the model gets weirdly stretched.

Thanks in advanced for any help you may have.

Yeah...this is why Emd didn't really want to release SporeModder this early in development. Think you could post the .BLEND file so Emd or I can take a look?

Well you haven't normalized the bone weights, for starters. Do that (make sure "Subset" is set to "All groups" and "Lock Active" is NOT checked), then we'll see what's left to try.

Thanks but that didn't change it very much it just seems to have changed the distorted shape to a different one.

Okay...select the mesh and go to edit mode, then press SPACE to open a menu. In the menu, search for "print unk2". If that value is more than 4, that's probably the issue. The easiest solution is to go back to weight paint mode and click Clean. Set "Subset" to "All groups", make sure "Keep Single" is checked, and play around with "Limit". I suggest you start with 0.100 . Then go back to object mode, deselect the mesh, reselect it, enter edit mode, and check the result of "print unk2" again. If it's still above 4, go back to weight paint mode, use "Clean" again, and increase the "Limit" a bit.

Also, all of your animations need to start at frame 0 and end at frame 30, and they need to have keys for all bones present at those two frames.
