    Waste of money. I was blended by the feature section and didn‘t pay enough attention to the limitations. I didn‘t think it was possible that a supposedly „better“ FBX exporter isn‘t able to properly export multiple animations. Wow. Also leaf bone export is not supported. Quite a step back. That’s not „better“...

      Hi Ben, you may request a refund, no problem. The add-on really does not export multiple animations like the default export. The add-on supports leaf bone exporting, you mean the orientation is not expected?

    Anyone who needs, either import or export files from Blender, and want to skip the annoying part where the errors comes up or files are somewhere in the cosmos except where you need them to be, this is the perfect tool. (Who knows it could save your keyboard from being destroyed). 0 issues, keep the AWESOME tools going!!! P.D. If you are reading this as a potential buyer, please read the installation instructions as well after buying this awesome tool, don't be me :D

      I agree, to install the product, you need to unzip it first, then install the add-on from the subdirectory.

    Sweet mother of all that is holy... Thank you for this! I tried another addon that was advertised (and more expensive) as exporting skeletal meshes, armatures and animations to Unreal Engine 4 (which I think we all know is a pain in the rump to export/import to) and it only partially worked. This addon? Worked like a charm... The first time... And was insanely easy to use. To a game engine? Check. Want the animation? Check. Done.

    I have genuinely been frustrated trying to get my mesh/skeleton/animations to UE4 for the last 3 days so that I can continue my game development and this is so very helpful - Thank you very much!

    Perfect plugin, it fixed the issue that built in fbx exporter cannot. And great support from the devs too.
    Totally recommended if you work for game assets or working with team that using different 3d software

      The armature is compatible with other 3d tools now, thanks for your advice.

    You are a life saver!!!

    Thank you so much and I was looking for this addon for so long, every time my client press me a FBX with ASCII format, It takes me long way to make it work in blender and its so annoyed.

    Love it!! please keep it update.

    Useless, I want to export an FBX to Unity without a 90 degree rotation, at least the built in exporter can do this.

      Hi Jim, There is an 'Optimize For Game Engine' option, activate it can export the armature and 3d model with unit scale and zero rotations, I have verified in Unity, Unreal and Godot.

    This is a fantastic tool that is quickly becoming *the* definitive import/export tool for Blender. It solves most (if not all) of the shortcomings in Blender's native FBX tool. And it now offers import/export for OBJ, DAE and DXF files as well. It's continually updated and the feature set keeps growing. If you're using Blender with other programs (UE4, Unity, Maya, 3DS Max, etc.) then this is well worth the money. My only hope is that we eventually get vertex animation export along with the FBX. Maya and 3DS Max can do this. Here's hoping this addon will eventually as well. :)

      Thanks, I'll consider the feature request. Though it is not difficult to export vertex animation along with the FBX, I have found that Unreal Engine is experimenting an Alembric importer, while Unity uses 3DS Max's pc2 format at present, but it already has an Alembric importer as well. So I guess that Alembric format may defeat other formats in the end. The FBX solution has some shortcomings, for example, the exported vertex animations are lack of normals, UVs and materials information, to use the vertex animation, you have to bind it to the corresponding FBX file, which lead to complicated workflow.

    Works Great! I was skeptical but then I visited the developer's website and realized that they are the same creators of Mantis LOD, which is my favorite Unity LOD editor, so that boosted my confidence significantly in getting BFIE and I am definitely not disappointed!
    I was having no luck at all importing this one *.fbx character model from Unity. It was a mangled mess and blend shapes weren't importing no matter what I tried. Then I tried BFBIE and it imported perfectly! :-D
    One thing to note though is that there were slight errors to the blend shapes when I used the BFIE exporter to export back to Unity but using Blender's default *.fbx exporter worked just fine as a workaround.
    Anyway, couldn't be happier and I think this is a must-have!

      Benedict Varga replied: "After importing the model back into Unity using BFIE, I found that simply changing the Blend Shape Normals setting to Import under the Model tab in the Unity Inspector corrected the problem. Is there a way to edit my review? It bothers me that someone might read that part of my review and decide against getting BFIE. Especially since what I wrote is wrong."
