Adding Attachment Models to Entities




I've successfully added model attachments back into my 3D engine. I'm providing a video entry that gives some details about how I implemented it. Because all 3D engines are different, I only give show shader code, but I think the explanations are nice and clear. This is probably one of my most informative videos. If it gets a nice reception, maybe I'll make more. I really put a lot of effort in to this video. It's taken me a few days to complete. I actually wrote a script for it and planned how I'd put it together. Enjoy.


If you'd like information on creating a skeletal animation system, here are some links. In the Direct X SDK, there is a sample on this topic as well.
