3d modeling program with a simple file format?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be programming a 3d game soon, and I need to know a good modeling program thats easy to read in from so that my artist can start practicing with it. Skeleton animation would be a plus. I'm gonna use C++ and D3d. Thanks.

The ASE (Ascii Scene Export) format is probably the best to learn with because it's human-readable and therefore fairly easy to parse, and there are also a fair number of tutorials and even code around that will help you out.

I know for a fact that 3D Studio MAX exports the ASE format, and I'm sure most other programs would probably be able to export it or have a plugin available. If all else fails, you should be able to find a converter somewhere on the net.

The MilkShape 3d format is pretty simple too, though AFAIK it doesn't have a lot of support in any other programs.
