qME is a 3D Modeller, Animator, 3D painter and 2D Texture editor for Quake
MDL files. MDL files contain models of monsters, weapons and other items
that are used in Quake.
The following very incomplete list of features describes what
you can do with qME:
- Create new models from prefab components.
- Edit existing vertices and triangles of existing models.
- Paint on the model in 3D and in 2D.
- View and edit 3D texture mapped animations contained in MDL files.
- Create new animation frames.
- Import and export textures to a 256 colors windows BMP file.
- Fit textures around the 3D model by adjusting 2D texture vertices.
- Create a hierarchy of interlinked objects for animation.
You can find MDL files in the PAK0.PAK and PAK1.PAK files that are
part of Quake. Both files are distributed by id software. To open a
PAK file use the tools that are freely available on the net.
The zip file contains:
qme.exe The program, (quake palette is built-in).
readme.txt Your reading it.
demo\*.mdl Example models created completely in qME
geometry\*.* Sub directory containing prefab objects.
help\*.* Sub directory containing the manual and tutorial.
3. Installation Instructions
Run the SETUP program and let it do all the work.
4. Working with qME
Open the manual (index.html) in the help sub directory to
see what you can do with qME.
For the latest updates to tutorial and manual, take a look
at my site
or visit the fine folks at 3D-matrix
Thanks to Smoke for making the first version of the tutorial and
wOOpNgibs for doing most of the object library prefab objects.
