.blend Fileformat Specification

Postby Oxygenic » Mon Feb 03, 2003 5:47 pm

Is there a specification (or any fragments of a specification) for the .blend fileformat available somewhere? I'm interested to implement a loader for Java 3D (and for my own project). The loader-sources itself are planned to be published.

Blender would be perfect to be supported by it directly because it is available for different platforms too.

.blend files are plain memory dumps

There might be some info in the developer section and on the 'Project' server...

Thx. I couldn't find anything until now.

But also if they are memory dumps, they must be structured in a defined way (containing all transformations, grouping information, objects, material definitions, lights etc.). So I think they are in every case more than only "plain" ;-)

Its everything but plain.
It's got it's own description of how the fileformat is, this makes it (unlike most fileformats) forward compatible.
