Q3D Tips&Tricks

@gamecorpstudio, I did some experimenting with my object-carrying character and swapping that character with the original character--and it worked. But now I'm writing a mini-tutorial for that process, including the Event Sheet steps for swapping between characters. And that may take a little while. It's not exactly what you're looking to do (altering the appearance of the Q3D monsters while preserving their animations), but it might give you some clues about how to do it. Unfortunately, it's approaching my bedtime, so I'll have to continue the tutorial tomorrow.

I will say this for now: I was wrong about parenting an object to the vertices of the morph-animated model in Blender and exporting that to Q3D. That's because such hierarchies can't be exported to a .json file. Instead, I went through a little more involved process of joining the character and the carried object as one model, manually rotating and positioning the object into the character's hand in each and every pose of the timeline, and then recording the keyframes. It's a little more work than originally intended, but it works! Anyway, I'll try to finish the mini-tutorial as soon as possible.

I have to learn not to announce things before I'm 100% sure how to really do it.... :oops:

Anyone having issues with trying to mirror/flip a q3dsprite? It's not working for me, and I'm not sure why.
Setting the x or y scales to -1 doesn't do anything either.

I had to add code to the q3dsprite runtime to fix the issue.
q3d-v-2-4-3d-physics-skeletal-animation-update_p941377?#p941377
It now works with that code I've added.

@miketolsa at the moment no, there is no youtube tutorials as you'd expect , not yet, this topic is for tricks and tips, as in why should you use some effects, parameters, renders, and tips as how to make them, but we also the posters still learn them, in our free time. there was an official announcement upon release of 2.4 that next will come the manual and a few more tutorials, but we have to wait since the developers, are between exams and have their own life in first line then comes this plugin as a hobby mostly :D

You can also check out the three.js docs to get a feel for how things work in the background, since q3d uses the three.js library. http://threejs.org/

atleast there should a list to relate those events or behaviours to three.js commands or classes or anything like that ? or how can someone compare both of them ?

im afraid the three.js examples from the website are not even close to what the plugin parameters are, for the developer might get easy, or people who already knows what three.js is but for normal people that are using construct2 without any knowledge of coding or just they are used to drag drop and publish that link wont work :D but is always good as an eye opener and see what q3d can do based on the three.js examples

I recently bought this plugin and after read all the features and examples i saw, this plugin needs more Video-Tutorials than other thing :P

Will be great if the developer get a break to release a good video-tutorials from the most basic until create mini games. Most of us can create some tutorials but as the first post we can do errors and confuse people form the start.

I only found two video-tutorials from the same guy on youtube:
First Q3D scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLhEL18-pRI
Import Object to Construct 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj7kjmYpxzw

So will be a great idea start/open a thread, or this one to update the first post adding all the links to tutorials/video-tutorials and links to the tips/tricks inside the post to find inmediately.

What you think?

added thanks for sharing dident had time to look into it lately, since i was preoccupied with some other 2.5D projects :D hopefully il start working on the projects i had in mind with Q3D and make a few tutorials on how to achieve some neat effects and games. Q3D is just simple to use, after u played a bit with the tutorial examples, but its tedious setting and arranging objects in the world :D lol
