Collada and other 3D modelling formats...

Recommended Posts

I am yet again looking at 3d model formats. Collada is one that looks very promising. I am curious what features it supports (eg. does it support animation?). Also, can I extend the file format and insert my own data into it? Lastly, are there any other 3D formats like Collada that are worth looking into?

Yes, Collada supports animation, you can check all features in http://www.khronos.org/collada/.

Collada is a XML based format, that means it is text and you have to parse it with your favourite XML parser (or build one). I recommend (like the Collada specification says) create your own binary format and a converter from Collada files. A binary format will be faster than a text format like Collada.
