X Files animation

Recommended Posts

It is my first post here so don''t yell at me if somebody has asked it before. I know how to load a mesh from a file and know how to disply it properly but when a file has animations inside I don''t know how to change frames and render it. I don''t talk about skeletal animation. Only simple keyframes. SirMike

It''s called a skinnedMesh, there is a sample in the SDK, only a sample project,but no tutorial. I wish there were some tutorials for this out there, it''s rather difficult.

Er, the animations in the X files I use are all skeletal animations. They keyframes reference animation sets, which contain bone animations.

If you''re looking for morph-style animation, you''ll have to roll your own. For what''s in the X files, all I can tell you is to look at the sample and docs. There are more animation samples coming in the next release, I do believe.

I like pie.

if you don''t want to do skeletal animation, (it''s a pain and I still can''t figure it out) look at the dolphin sample that comes with the sdk, it doesn''t use a skeleton, (but it''s method of animation is not recomended for most uses)

Tweening is not a thing which I would like to do with my models.
