VoxelShop Unity Helper

Hello Everybody,

Following on from the forum thread here: http://blackflux.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=43&start=20

I've made a Unity Editor extension to provide a few choice helper functions when importing VoxelShop models.

You can download it here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46162333/VoxelShop/VoxelShop_Unity_Helper.unitypackage

Note: The package was made in Unity v4.5.4.

To use it:

Import it into your Unity project (double click the package with Unity open or hit Asset > Import Package)

This will add a menu to your Editor: "VoxelShop"

There are three menu functions:

Apply Ideal Texture Settings

1) Select one or many textures in your Unity project
2) Hit this menu item
3) The texture settings will be modified so that your VoxelShop models look beautiful in Unity.

Atlas all Models

1) Select one or many models and textures in your Unity project
2) Hit this menu item
3) The models will be paired with their corresponding textures (using VoxelShop naming conventions)
4) These textures will be atlassed
5) The VoxelShop mesh UV coordinates will be modified to use this atlas
6) The net result: One material, many many models. Which is good.

Convert to Vertex Coloring

1) As above
2) Instead of atlassing your textures, this will embed the colors from your textures into the VoxelShop mesh itself.
3) This is not hugely useful for ordinary use-cases, but there are some instances where it is needed.

I'm not a big forum person - but if you've got any questions / requests etc, I'm on twitter as @DopplerInteract

Do you mind if I distribute this with VoxelShop? With credit of course!

Collada export now supports vertex coloring from VoxelShop itself.

Lots of updates and VoxelShop is open source now!
