Import/export conversion
« on: December 07, 2017, 06:59:18 am »
ANyone sucessfully script keyshot to be used as a converter? I regualary download items from grabcad to import into cinem 4d, but C4D doesn't read most CAD formats, so normally i import into KS and export as an fbx or OBJ. Sometimes I have to do this for dozens of objects, and it would be great to be able to have an automated way of doing this. I'm looking at other options as well, but I currently use KS and C4D at work, and would like to do it with that without having to purchase rhino or another program.

Is this something that could be done easily with KS or should I keep looking elsewhere? Would like it to operate something like Photoshops' Batch Convert script where it gets pointed at a folder and runs through all the files in there, or even a drag and drop icon on the desktop.

Thanks!

Hello,

Currently that is not possible.
Mainly because Export is not Supported in Scripting.
You can only save to *.bip at the moment.

The Option to export might get added down the line, but currently it is not possible to output anything but *.bip and image/Video files via scripting.
