Does anyone have any knowledge about editing GR2 files? I understand the basic premise, but I've been unsuccessful in finding a program that can edit them. (not that I have much experience with 3d editing) What I'm trying to achieve is relatively simple. I just want to stretch and resize a few models.

I don't think it can be done without Granny 2.

Granny 2 is just a viewer, AFAIK. Though I've never done anything with it so I don't know, viewing is all I have been able to do with it for several reasons.

And you have to have granny viewer to at least view the file content.

But note that if you're messing around with the game files, you should have a file backup - which I'm sure you already will have

I have Granny viewer, and I understand basically how it works. Although if anyone could tell me how to load textures inside the viewer, that would be most helpful.

What I'm looking for is a round about way to edit the GR2 files. For example, a way to export them into something like blender or 3ds max, edit, then export them back to a GR2 file. Any thoughts?

The Granny Viewer is just a viewer but the files are called gr2 because they were produced using Granny 3D. Nothing converts to gr2, people have been trying for years. The only player who has modded a gr2 file was Frankoman and he only was able to do it because someone at FireFly did it for him. (Elongated a shield for Roman Legionnaires.)

Don't give up though, maybe just see if you can get Granny 3D, it's getting old.
