Hey! I''m somewhat new to OpenGL programming (and have been thoroughly enjoying NeHe''s tutorials), and I was wondering if there were any free libraries or code out there that could load 3-D models saved to a file into an OpenGL display list. The formats I can save my work into are: OBJ, X, DXF, C4D, 3DS, WRL (versions 1 and 2), MS3D (version 1.4), 3DM, W3D, and possibly XML (not quite sure if it''s actually transferable to another application or not). The 3-D software I typically use is Cinema 4D XL 7, though I did download the Milkshape trial version. Thanks for the help!
