Ban? LOL! My friend, you're honest and I think everyone in the RL community appreciate your AMAZING help!
You are a real TREASURE for this community and a very honest person from what I got, and I like it a lot about you.
I totally agree with the FREEDOM in software such as Blender (I know it's no 3DS or Maya etc.. but I already fall in love with it a few years ago and still learning it whenever possible).
But as an animator (I'm originally 2D Animator as my professional for 10+ years) Animating in Blender is nice, but not yet close to the FUN and FAST animating in iClone, that is why I chose to make my upcoming project in iClone.
Since Blender's "realtime" isn't that fast even with all options and what not, it's not the same... and rendering OpenGL tests every time I want to check the timing is a very time consuming.
Also, I'm very impressed with the upcoming PBR rendering that will probably come to the future version of iClone and that will may even convince me to not import to UE4 at all, but just do even more inside iClone and I'm very excited about what Reallusion cooking for us.
So, what I'm saying is... I agree with you, it seems weird that RL take some freedom from the Import / Export and make it much harder and even in my case... not working at all (for now until I'll find a solution) BUT I do understand their model, they are thinking about the protection of the workflow between all their software connected, that's why the KEY files came with CC 1.5 so it make sense to me and I respect their way. it doesn't make it should be like that, because yeah... it looks like a longer way to make export/import works but if somehow it will work for me, I'll be happy to start animating.
This week I've said to myself... Why won't I just start animating the characters naked... with the factory clothes... but sorry,
I can't give up yet, I actually have a vision in my head how exactly things should look, what clothes they have, accessories etc...
I even modeled a full Temple in Blender for the scene and was excited to start animating on it...... ehhh, unfortunately instead of animating I found myself fighting with errors and fails that I don't even know how to pass.
I still have a hope that one of the official RL members are already familiar with these errors I get and will be able to point on the issue that I just did wrong and tell me how to fix it easily.
I'm pretty sure that there is something I'm doing wrong, but after following all the video tutorials that are there related to CC and Blender... it works PERFECT for everybody but not for me, so I'm getting sad because my freedom of creation is limited by errors.
Again, Sorry about my bad English.
