TIP: Skinned Mesh Export from Blender 2.5 to Unity

A 7-minute tutorial on how to get a basic skinned mesh through to unity. I ran into this issue and thought I would share my discovery of a way that works.

The short version if you know blender well is that you have to use vertex groups instead of envelope weighting. If you don’t know what that means, watch the video, if you do, you can probably figure it out from there. Apologies if this is rather basic but I am new to blender.

There are still a couple of issues with the armature itself not being oriented how I would expect after export but the animation data seems to work correctly. If you have any additional hints or tricks on this please let me know.

If you are getting an error like this:

ImportFBX Warnings:
Mesh ‘Cube’ has 12 (out of 12) vertices with no weight and bone assigned (they will be assigned to bone #0 with weight 1). The list of vertices: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and so on…

Then the video should fix this.
