Blender 2.80 pvrPOD exporter issue

Hello,

I trying to export my model from Blender 2.80 using pvrGeoPOD plugin but having problems with it.
When I go to export to pod nothing happens and at the bottom of the screen just get and error message: Failed to load pvrGeoPOD.dll

How do I resolve this error?

Thank you,
Stan

Hi Stan,

I have to reckon that I tested it with an older version of 2.80. It looks like a mismatch with the compilers used to build the plugin. I will have a look.

Thanks.

Hi Stan,

The problem is that the current Blender installation only copies the py file and not the companion dll.
Copy PVRGeoPOD.dll in to c:/Users/[your name]/AppData/Roaming/Blender Foundation/Blender/scripts/addons
The AppData folder is hidden so you need to make it visible.
There is another problem you need to fix before running it. Open PVRGeoPODScript.py and remove line 980:
scene.update()
This function is not supported anymore. It is not really needed so it is safe to remove.

If you make these two changes the exporter should work fine.

Regards.

Carlos.

By the way, another way of installing the proper libraries is to zip together PVRGeoPOD.dll and PVRGeoPODScript.py and installing the zip file from the Blender addons tab.

Regards.

Carlos.
