primedragoon Posted January 22, 2018 Share Posted January 22, 2018 I'm editing in this quote from another Mod Author from Nexus Mods. Full credit to Sihnar for discovering this guide, as I definitely never could have. The process is a big pain in the ass. I mostly followed this tutorial.https://www50.atwiki.jp/skyrim_mod/sp/pages/48.html#id_6d87948aIt's in Japanese but just hit Google translate.There are 4 main steps.1. Download the .blend file from that page with the rig set up. Use that to create your animations using poses.2. Export the animation to a txt using a python script. It is included in the blend file or in one of the links in that page. You have to run it through blender.3. Convert the txt to hkx using the converter. Included with the blend file download or with one of the links in that page.4. You will need another converter to convert your hkx to SSE compatible.https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/2970/Have fun! The guide, despite being google translated, is pretty excellent being honest. Hopefully I can achieve something following it, as he has. And hopefully, this will become a tool of enlightenment for all Blender users out there without 1200 dollars in their back pocket for the ability to animate in skyrim. End edit. // // // // So I've been attempting to find out how to get an animation file out of skyrim, along with all associated mesh files, and stick it into Blender. And of course, vice versa, as I'd like to make a combat animations mod. Sadly I haven't found a lot of information on this specific process, aside from one 'tip' to use nifscope to save the scene as an object file and then import it in Blender, but I'm pretty sure that only works for static mesh objects. If you can open animation files with nifscope, then if someone could kindly point me down the correct filepath, that'd be awesome. However browsing through said folders only results in the display of folders, I don't think nifscope was ever meant to deal with any type of animation data. Link to comment
