Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to 3D game programming and I would like to known which 3D file format you guys recommend I use. The game engine I'm using supports the following file formats:

[list][*]X[*]3DS[*]MDL[*]MD2[*]MD3[/list]I'll be using Blender 2.56 for the design.

For practical purposes, the 3D file format you'll be [i]using [/i]is Blender's one. If you aren't sure of which format you want to use for [i]exported[/i] models, try multiple formats and perhaps different exporters and judge quality from the end result in your game engine. I expect model export from Blender to be automated with a Python script ("object A to file B in format C with settings D"), so using different file formats for different models shouldn't be a problem.
