Driver Exporter - Object Shape Keys

by Inlet in Addons



Animating shape keys through drivers, utilizing the visual representation of bones or objects to animate their value, is a favored process for animators.

However, the challenge arises when attempting to export this data from Blender, as drivers aren't something that can be copied to other engines. And because the keyframes of these shape keys are stored within the armature as drivers, the animation becomes lost.

Enter the Driver Exporter: a solution comprising only of two buttons! Simply select the objects, ensure the animations are in NLA strips, and let the addon take care of the rest by providing freshly baked shape keys, delivered to the object directly.

This approach liberates the shape keys from their armature.

Check Documentation for more info.
