Default Batch Importer

Is there a facility to run a batch import, I've some 5000 object files that I'd like to run as batches into AC3D, say 10-50 at a time. So I can rationalise them and save out as AC3D parts for a future merge.

The original model has some vast number of polys (est 9.6 million), so much to big to handle as single item.


Ability to select directory.
Select number of files, to allow for different sizes of file, range 2 to 50.
Import using standard import code, so OBJ, 3DS, etc available.
Make material setting on each imported file unique, to make selection easier.
Make object name as per imported file name.

Can anyone build such a tool ?

I think this could be done with a script, but I'm afraid I don't have time to write it at the moment.

For each file, you'd do something like:

ac3d load_file $filename
ac3d set_col $your_new_col
ac3d set_current_object_name $filename
You'll need to know some tcl for this. You could add a simple UI with directory selector etc.
