I have a problem that is quite tricky to solve. I have a lot of cool models, but I can't export them into Blender because they're .mesh. I need to convert it to OBJ so Blender can read it, but to no avail. In case you may wonder: -XNALara doesn't work -Any Windows program is useless to me as I have GNU/Linux and WINE does nothing. So, please, if you have any suggestions on what to do, please tell me! I am pulling my hair out.
I installed that program, and even though it does provide for the conversion, it requires a registered version of it (ie. paid version). So far, I've only found ogre converter and a website that does mesh conversion (http://www.meshconvert.com/) to be reliable.
while trying(a lot), i figure it out how to open those .mesh that doesnt work with blender o XNAlara, use Noesis, right now its the only one that was able to read and properly display those model files. :D
depending where you find those models for example; mobile games if you find the _data files use UnityEX for exporting it would do all the hard work for you.
