I have a .json file for a custom entity made and imported, but when I click "Entity model:" in the Living entity tab, the custom model does not appear.

The only things that appear are 'BUILT IN' models.

I have tried using other file formats and relaunching the program. I have found a similar issue here: https://mcreator.net/tracker/issue/55652 but I am still very unclear.

How can I use my model?

I've been doing some searching.

It seems that I have to export my model with '*.java' extension. The editor that I am using, Blockbench, does not export projects as .java files.

Unless I am missing something, I am a bit disappointed because I put some good work into the model. Then again, if there is a way to export models as a .java file, I would really like to know.

Perhaps maybe a recommended model editor?

Another update,

MCreator can export files as .java, the conversion works! but it does not save textures. This is good news.
