Overview

ANoob's Brres Material Tool (also known as abmatt) is a Python command line tool created by ANoob. This is used for creating, editing and exporting BRRES models. It was created with the intention of making the process of material editing and model creation easier.

Main Features

  • Conversion to and from OBJ and DAE file formats.
  • Automatically uses previous material settings on model replacement.
  • Copy and pasting of materials, shaders, and animations.
  • Regular expression pattern matching.
  • Interactive mode.
  • Text file commands.
  • Custom configuration (etc/abmatt/config.conf).
  • Presets (etc/abmatt/presets.txt)
  • Automatically checks and fixes.
  • Automatically detects model name of course, map, and vrcorn models.
  • Automatically adds map model bones.

Model Creation Geometry Details

  • Automatically detects encoding format to use, guaranteeing 6 decimals of precision.
  • Uses tristrips to create model geometry, saving file space.
  • Removes super small triangles that become lines.
