Hi, im searching for a 3d fileformat (character) that has bones, is binary and as easy as possible :). Would be nice if maya got exporter for it too. Any suggsestion? or how hard is it to create its own format?

It's pretty easy to make your own format, just make a list of features you want and find a way to get the model from a modelling package to your format.

I personally use Blender, and writing Python scripts ain't so bad.

The .X file format has both plaintext and binary versions, exporters from maya, and for the icing on the cake has a full API for using it with D3DX (although obviously you don't have to use that).
