A video tutorial?

?

Would you like to see a video tutorial about ModelConverterX 1.0

  1. No, the user manual is enough for me

  3. Yes, but an interactive online demonstration where I can ask my questions would be even better

    Now that version 1.0 has been released, I am thinking about making a video tutorial to explain how to use ModelConverterX. Or another idea I have is to have some online session where I give a demonstration of what the tool can do (using video streaming and the teamspeak server we have).

    Are this suggestions that you as user would find useful or not?

    Hi Arno

    I found your video tutorial on LOD creation very well done and informative. You have made some chamges since that was made. Could there be a case for updating that? It's certainly an area where I think extra help would be appreciated.

    Hi Iain,

    Yes, I was thinking to do an overview tutorial of the entire tool. I guess that might be useful for many users. The LOD tool would also be included in that again.

    I learn well from videos, so I think it'd be a great idea, Arno.

    So many answers...!
    Thank you for this powerfull tool. Only thing I'm missing is extraction of the full textures list from mdl or library bgl.
    But may be a video might instruct me how to ;)
    Also it seems fs9 mdl are not allowed :eek:
    Anyway, thanks again and "yes" to the video

    Hi,

    Both the texture list and the FS2004 MDL files are still on my wishlist :).

    The video tutorial is still planned, but this month I will be travelling a bit more than usual for my work. So it will probably take a little bit longer than I wanted :).

    Just a small update. Lately I have been quite busy, but now there are some days off coming here in the Netherlands (Queens day, liberation day, etc). So I plan to use one of those to work on a new video tutorial.

    I have (finally) finished the video tutorial. You can find it on the Wiki, here is the link.

    Let me know if there are other features that are unclear to the user and would benefit from another video tutorial.
