Good news! exporting animation now works properly as mentioned some post ago. You don't need to bake the action. just modify the exporting settings an done! they don't used to export properly before ending on wrong animations due the armature didn't apply the constraints and restrictions.

What are your PC specs ? Maybe it's because the new blender uses a more recent OpenGL version...

Following this tutorial i have recreated the scale material easier to use with another material:

Here a look:

Spoiler

image.pngimage.pngimage.pngimage.pngimage.png

The material is controled by this "simple" node group:

Spoiler

Color can be used as one or if want imperfection use both.

  1. "Tamaño de Escamas"; Traduced as "Scale Size".
  2. "Separación Intermedia"; This is handle the middle separation between scales.
    This little dot is the separation:
    Spoiler

    Value 1: The little dot is in the middle of the scale.

    Value 0: the dot goes up to the middle section of the scale. (i've increased the dot size to be visible)

    Spoiler

    image.png

3. "Tamaño de Separación"; Traduced as "Size of separation". This one handles the lil dot size:

Value 1: Looks like a chainmal!

Spoiler

Value 0: No dot.

4. And last the Scale border (Borde de Escamas); This soften the scale edge:

Blendfile: Will be uploaded later when my internet goes stable.

Yeah i saw that after the bake but it takes 30 mins per baje (Normal/diffuse) so i leaved it as it is :P.

3 Test following references for scale chamfron/armor:

It's a shame for me not to be able to use your materials.
I hate the intel HD Graphics >:(

You can use them, by appending. (i use intel HD Graphics be sure to update your drivers) but with the DxDiag i can see the graphic chipset of your processor is too low for 2.80

So i've spent most of the day doing this (because my pc is crappy and don't have gpu but just an Intel HD4000 and every render is 30 mins long and preview is 30 seconds per frame):

Experimenting with my base material for helmets and ships, plus another tutorial i've watched + everything i've learned so far. 

A fully zipped material into this:

And this is how it looks inside:

A WHOLE DAY FOR A SINGLE BARREL! Yes, thats how much it takes for my pc to experiment with materials.


Plus this i've baked for the persians:

Could you bake a flat 256x256 .png image of that scale, I will see what I can come up with it. :) Also if you could make a variant with smaller scales, maybe reduce the size by 50%, thanks!
