Importing XML file into Unity Raises Exceptions

Discussion in 'Unity Plugin' started by cyril, Jan 10, 2019.

  1. I tried importing my XML file into Unity using the MuJoCo Unity plugin. The first minor error raised was that the code provided in the plug in is unsafe, and the 'enable unsafe code' checkbox should be enabled in the Player Settings. This was relatively easy to fix.

    The second error I'm trying to fix relates to Unity raising an exception at the materials (.mat) in my XML file. This is the related exception:

    UnityException: Creating asset at path Assets/Materials/suture_body_robot0:link_mat.mat failed.

  2. So turns out Unity is a bit picky when importing materials from Mujoco. You have to wrap any materials into the 'asset' tag and make sure the name doesn't contain any ':' as this will likely throw an exception. '_' are allowed.
     
  3. Another problem I seem to be experiencing is on the quality of the meshes being imported. Inside of the MuJoCo environment things are smooth and correct (Pic 1). On the other hand, this is the same mesh inside of Unity (Pic 2). Is there any way of correcting this behavior?
