Modelonverterx obj mtl files

#1
Hi
Can someone help me understand and how to export an .obj file with textures using relative paths.

It there a way to export an .obj file with textures using relative paths?
Every time I export an .obj file, texture file paths shown in the related .mtl file are always absolute path.


I can load the obj file into MCX and see the textures, but when I use the obj in another program it can't find the textures and I have to hand edit the paths in the MTL file.

Hi,

Let me check, that's probably something in need to change in MCX. Although it's weird other tools don't support the absolute paths.

I've had this problem as well, and I had to work around it by exporting the *.OBJ into the root folder of a drive with all mapped textures. :scratchch

I'll check if it is something I do or that the library I use to write objects does.
