Adding animation to a game engine.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am the 3d modeler for a game called Outsider. We have decided to insert animations into the engine..
We want support for both key frame and skeletal animations.

The question I have is what file formats work for this, and how can I export my 3ds max files into these formats.

Id appreciate any help!

I honestly dont know, the reason I dont know is because if you are writing a game engine you will only load from a 3d model format, then save it to your own format in binary form. You will not be using a file format like 3ds or md5, or fbx for normal loading of your models -- it is simply too slow. Using ASSIMP in the link I provided, you can load more model types that you know what to do with. After you load them into your engine, you should convert the loaded information into your format and save it in binary format for fast loading.
