Animation Compression Library (ACL) support
« on: June 20, 2021, 19:01 »

Some games like Valorant (https://www.gildor.org/smf/index.php/topic,7040.0.html) use ACL ( https://github.com/nfrechette/acl ) and Umodel crash and dont export the animations.

What i want to know if this will get support with UModel or is it something that is not important atm to get added.

I do not have plans for supporting ACL. It's third party library, and it is not widely used.
I know that Epic assisted the library's developer with UE4 integration, however they did not consider it as a core feature, and it says something. They probably were just interested in proper plugin interface to engine's animation system.

If there will be 10-15 games using this library, I'll consider integration (if it will not break anything in UModel)

I was planning to create an updated list with games, which are using ACL compression, for statistics and better navigation in the future, to simplify possible tests and such. The list contains links to corresponding forum topics, if present.

Currently there is third party tool for such animations, created by akderebur. You can get it along with instruction from this topic at xentax. It should work with all games, mentioned in the list, except Fortnite (Fortnite animations can be exported in Fmodel since version 4.0.2).

Desktop games:
All latest Dontnod's games: two last episodes of Life is Strange 2, Twin Mirror, Tell Me Why, most likely all their future releases as well.
Beyond a Steel Sky, Chivalry 2, Fortnite (partially), Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Remnant: From the Ashes (current version), Rogue Company (current version), Star Wars: Tales From The Galaxy's Edge, The Ascent, The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, Valorant (partially).

Mobile games:
Apex Legends Mobile (current version), Dislyte, Marvel Future Revolution, Mir4, Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds, PUBG Mobile (current version).

Console games:
No More Heroes 3

looks like we've met the 10-15 games threshold for the support to be added  cool
