Bos FBX Importer/Exporter for Blender 2.77 (Windows 64-bit Only)

Download link: drive.google.com/file/d/0B_cBW…

Overview
This addon is based on Bos FBX Importer/Exporter created by Kazuma Hatta. The original can be found at blenderfbx.render.jp/
Blender 2.77 uses Python 3.5, therefore the original Bos FBX Importer/Exporter does not work anymore.
This addon is built with original source code with boost 1.6 (www.boost.org/) and Autodesk FBX SDK 2017.0.1 (www.autodesk.com/products/fbx/…)
The Python code is modified to use the UMIO.pyd for Python 3.5 and the umconv_bos_fbx2017_win64.exe for Autodesk FBX SDK 2017.0.1.

Installation
1. Copy umconv folder to where Blender is installed.
2. Run Blender
3. Open User Preferences.
4. Select Add-ons, then click Install from File.
5. Locate the io_scene_bos_fbx.zip, then click Install from File.
6. Enable the Add-ons, then click Save User Settings

Quick question, is the UmConv executable optional?

I read the following from blenderfbx.render.jp and I want to make sure I didn't misunderstand what was written:
"This is Imoprter/Exporter for Bos format(.bos) and FBX(.fbx, optional, need UmConv).

If you need to import fbx format, UmConv is needed.

Sorry to bother you again.
I'm using Blender 2.79b, and I'm trying to import this model with the BOS FBX Importer:
Neon Genesis Evangelion: Eligible - Misato Katsura by KittyInHiding
After clicking the import button, the model isn't imported, and the 3D viewport remains the same.
No error message in the console.

- io_scene_bos_fbx.zip (2016-04-21)
- readme.txt (2016-04-21)

usually, the error shows in the console
without the error message there, I can't help
try to use the fbx import comes with blender
in some cases, the blender's own import works

Hi again, I also tried the native FBX importer for Blender 2.79b, but I get the following error message:
"ASCII FBX files are not supported..."

Were you able to import the above model with the BOS FBX Importer?

Yes, it works with the Bos FBX Importer/Exporter.  See TestBosFBX by amyaimei

For the Blender's own importer, the same error as yours.

Noted that the Bos FBX Importer/Exporter only works in Windows 64-bit.

To see the Blender console, you can use the menu option shown in my screenshot.  With the message in the console, I will be able to help you to find out what's wrong.

Ok, just testing, I uninstalled blenderfbx-2.77, and then installed BL_20150704.
When I clicked the import button, I get this error message:

I then uninstalled BL_20150704, and reinstalled blenderfbx-2.77.
When I clicked the import button, the console didn't produce any error messages. It's like the addon never initialized.

To be clear, with each addon installation, I saw a green message above saying the module was successfully installed: i.imgur.com/YxBF7Xw.png
But apparently both addons don't import anything, and only 1 of them produced the error message above.

I was wondering if the download link on the page is the wrong one.

I'm using 64bit Windows.
I'm using Blender 2.79b .zip install instead of .msi
I have the native FBX Importer addon disabled.
umconv_bos_fbx2017_win64.exe has admin privilege.
umconv_bos_fbx2017_win64.exe is installed in the same location as Blender.exe.

Are you using the version I built?
It can be downloaded at drive.google.com/file/d/0B_cBW…
BL_20150704 will not work because the change of Python version.  This is the reason of making my own version.
You screenshot shows "started" means that the script is started.  I think it is something do with the location of the umconv_bos_fbx2017_win64.exe
It should be under the umconv folder at where blender.exe is installed.

When I import models from Life Is Strange Before the Storm with Unity Studio, it doesn’t import the normals.

Can you import the model with the FBX importer comes with Blender?

I've found that some FBX's imported properly into Blender using Blender's FBX importer but these models can't be imported properly usiing Bos FBX Importer.  I use Bos FBX Importer only if the Blender one failed.  I never use the Bos FBX Exporter myself because I do not have a need to export.

No. It says that its not supported.

If the material contains some form of transparency, the normal may not be correct.  You can use Blender to correct the normal.

Hopefully, Blender will have a better FBX Importer/Exporter in next release, then you will not need this one.

um, exactly where do I put the zip file in blender? as in, scripts? Python?
Reply
:iconamyaimei:
amyaimei Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2017
You have to unzip the zip file and copy the folders and files to your Blender.
I give you an example, in this case my Windows username is Amy and I'm using Blender 2.78c 64-bit installed at C:\blender-2.78c-windows64:
The io_scene_bos_fbx should be placed in C:\Users\Amy\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.78\scripts\addons
The umconv should be placed in C:\blender-2.78c-windows64

Noted that this only work with 64-bit Windows.

OK, but it says that there are multiple addons using the same name, what do I do about that?

Do you have the old Bos FBX Importer/Exporter?  If yes, you have to remove it.
Could you send me the list of all your addons?

If you are not sure about the steps I put in the description, I am afraid this is not the thing that you are looking for.  The installation is similar to what is shown at blenderfbx.render.jp/install

is that compatible with Blender 2.75? And also 2.72?
Reply
:iconamyaimei:
amyaimei Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2017
No, but you can use the original from blenderfbx.render.jp/
The reason of making this version myself is Blender 2.77 or above uses Python 3.5.  The original version supports up to Python 3.4.

:iconevangelinengelo:

That means 2.75 is not compatible?

The one I built does not work with 2.75. The original version works with 2.75 and 2.76 but not 2.77 and above

So, that means i can't make that BOS import fbx with Blender 2.77

But, in blenderfbx.render.jp there is mention 2.73 or above
Reply
:iconamyaimei:
amyaimei Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2017
For 2.77, you have to use my version because the original is not compatible with 2.77. This is the reason I built my version. If you are using Blender before 2.77, get the original.

This one can import FBX files failed to be imported by the Blender's built in FBX import/export.  I have some FBX files that cannot be imported by Blender.  This is the reason I built it.

amyaimei Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2016
It only work with Windows (64-bit) and Blender 2.77 or 2.77a
The UMIO.pyd should be located in AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.77\scripts\addons\io_scene_bos_fbx\win64bit\python35 under your Windows user's folder if you installed it properly.

What are the options you selected?
If you are using my script, only FBX SDK 2017 is available.  If you have more SDK options, that's not mine.  Please review the installation.
