NIF export for 3D-Coat?

5 posts in this topic

I was curious if there was a NIF export for 3D-Coat. Been thinking of making textured meshes for Skyrim.

not that I know of, sadly. I do Skyrim assets too, often from 3D coat, but I still has to send my stuff to another DCC software which has a nif plugin (Maya, in my case).

I've been currently creating a scratch made weapon in 3d coat for Fallout 4 (uses the NIF model type too). I just export my file from 3D Coat as a OBJ file and then using 3DS Max NIf plugin convert it there. I don't think a NIF plugin for 3D Coat could be made unless it was created by someone in the Skyrim/Fallout community similar to how the 3ds max and Maya ones were.

I don't have 3DS. That's why I was asking.

I think there is a mod called bodyslide for Fallout/Skyrim that has a nif exporter built in. You can just drag and drop your obj file that you exported from 3D Coat and then save it as a nif in that program. I think there are some YouTube videos that go over how to do this.
