Milkshape and Skeletal Animation

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to control the skeletal points created in Milkshape using the DirectX API? Or am I stuck with animating it in Milkshape only? Furthermore, can you suggest a tutorial or book that would go over this? Segmental fault

Yeah, take a look at skinned meshes, there aren't many tutorials and the theory behind the code in the d3d sample is a bit difficult to understand, but that's the step to get inside...

There is one tutorial in the articles section that covers the sample in a much simpler way than just reading all the code... I recommend you to read it... it took me one month to understand everything and I had to make a few changes (little by the way) to work well with animations...

Here's the article:

BTW: have an algebra book near your desktop...



No matter where you go... &this

The MS3D Model Viewer OCX renders MS3D models with animation using DirectX9. Have a look at it at:

Tip: open the .ocx in WinZip ;-)
