X file selected frame animation

Recommended Posts

I want to keep all of my animations in one file for my characters and select the required frames that hold a spcific animation (example. run animation is in the frames 31-45, idle animation in in the frames 01-30). Any help would be grand. Thanks EnSabac

Ever looked at MD2 models?

There was a tutorial on loading and drawing them about a month ago. Check in Articles and resources.

Yah I saw that but I wanted to use the X files. I don''t want to have any problems with Id because most of that code came from their Quake 2 engine. Plus most of their comments were in German.

MD2 models are free to use (no need to licence from Id) and the code from the tut itself worked fine for me - modified to use vertex buffer and vertex shaders for tweening. MUCH easier than Skinned meshes - i had a SIMPLE demo that took nerly 30 pages to load and there were still massive bugs in it.
