edit: TL;DR: I've tweaked the .lwo exporter to preserve autosmooth angle Ahem. When I started writing this post a couple of days ago, it was supposed to be a "please help me, models won't smooth" kind of thing, but as I started taking screenshots and such for a comprehensive view of the problem, the question morphed into a "is there a hack to get .lwo's to export the way .ase's do", then to "how to get the same surface smoothing from Blender as you can get from Lightwave" and eventually to "does anyone around know python and blender enough to fix the export plugin". But then I fixed the addo
Hi, I thought I should document this discussion here, for future reference, as info on this subject has become quite scattered and out of date. I've been wrestling with MD5s for a while now with no success. Importing works but the meshes and armatures are problematic. I decided to start with an animated model from scratch.

I am in need of an ASE exporter for Blender. I tried KatsBits ASE export, but it's so old that modern Blender versions don't even list the addon after it's installed.

I know DR can export into OBJ, but I recall it exports brushes as split planes. Is it possible to add option to export brushes as convex manifold meshes (so that level in OBJ ends up being made of multitextured cubes/parallelepipeds) ? Is it also possible to export patches as meshes (or as patches, if OBJ supports them) ? Is it possible to export lights, entities, etc. as dummy/empty objects (or cubes of a small size) with specific name conventions ? (it would be easier to find them in 3D app) Thanks!
