3DS File hierarchy etc

Recommended Posts

Hi Does anyone know about the format of 3DS files? I''m looking for info on how object groups and hierarchies are stored, as my 3DS loader I am making is limited to loading a single mesh. I''ve downloaded several docs on the format, but all they tell you is the chunk names-not what they actually are. I need to know how exactly multiple objects are stored, and where exactly their hierarchy ID is stored... Thanks alot! :D Dan
