Hi guys ! I recently decided that it was the time for my rebellion against Microsoft and I dropped D3D and started to learn OpenGL Now I''m trying to load 3ds models in my openGL "game" and I wonder if there''s an easy way ( I don''t really care if there''s only a hard way ) ? So the question is What is the best technic to load 3ds models into an OpenGL application. Thanks ! Marco Arsenault Programmer : Device that converts caffeine into code.

easy way:

use code that somebody else wrote! Check the "code of the day" collection at www.flipcode.com


hard way:

write your own loader....

Heres a hint... DON''T CODE A 3DS LOADER! Unless you need it for inporting/exporting for a modeling program, the best models you can load in are .ms3d, and .md2|.md3s. .ms3d is the milkshape format (and milkshape has support for a helluva lot of files), and .md2|.md3 are the quake 2|3 (respectively) format, and they have a lot of models for them over at polycount.com (not the real site, but it will automatically forward you).
