I just downloaded blender 2.70 windows 64. I want to convert .obj files to .X files to use then in the pmd editor and MMD. I cant find an export to .x file. the tutorial that I am looking at is for an older version of Blender.

  • $\begingroup$ AFIK not all import/export scripts have been ported to the new Python API. But if you know on which Blender version it worked you can download the old release here. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm pretty sure the export option for .x is there. Look again. If not you must have disabled it. $\endgroup$

Enabling Import & Export of DirectX 3D Model file format .X

Blender 2.70 comes with the "DirectX X Format" Export addon built-in.

However, the "DirectX Importer" Import addon is not built-in. If you'd like to have the ability to import .X files, you can download it in this addon bundle. (Note: that post describes how to add the addon to Blender's scripts folder.)

To enable these:

  1. Info header -> File -> User Preferences

    enter image description here

  2. Then, in the search box, type Direct. Two DirectX addons will appear:

    • The one named "DirectX Importer" provides the ability to Import .X files
      The one named "DirectX X Format" provides the ability to Export .X files

    • Check the checkbox at the right hand side of the addon to enable it

    • If you want to always have these import/export options in your File menu, then click on the Save User Settings button at the bottom of the screen:

    enter image description here

  3. You will then have the .X file format as import & export options:
