Looking for 3D file formats

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking for as-many-as-possible 3D file formats, like MD2. Code will be nice, but an adequate format description will be welcome as well. Plus if you have any comments or opinions about certain formats, I would love to hear it all. Thanks!

Yes, I have searched wotsit before, thanks. I kinda hoped to lay my hands on some of the more advanced formats, for more advanced games such as HL2, Far Cry, Doom3 and so on. I realize that most of them (or maybe all of them...) aren't public domain, but maybe some are - and somebody knows where the formats are. Also, maybe a proprietary format of an advanced public-domain engine is available as well, which would serve me just the same.

We use the dotXSI file format. Its easy to load using the FTK provided by Softimage. All for free... and the Foundation package is really powerful and cheap. www.softimage.com

Luck!

You should pick up the book Focus on 3D Models by Evan Pipho. It covers a great deal of the commonly used 3d file formats. It contains the source code to load all of the covered formats, as well as chapters on animating these same formats.
It's quite a good book.
