I'm rewriting my model loader to support COLLADA, and I'm not sure how to handle vertex normals for lighting. I have all the shades and calculations working, but if I wanted to turn lighting off, I feel that it's wasting memory if I allocate and setup normals regardless. Especially if I'm updating my normals when lighting is OFF.
What are your opinions?
