what are you using?

Post by mmerlin »

hello,

secondary, blender is a very nice, powerful tool,...
some of you export blender objects and use them
in own programms.

I also wanna do this and have choosen the ac3d
format (I also have wrote a import library for c++).

But is there a better way or a other file format
(which blender is supporting)?

Which things are you using?

I only want to export a cube (or even more complex ;-)
with textures and show them in a own programm...
(dxf is a overload for this).

What do you think?

Well, I use my companies propriatry format, its simple ASCII, and is similar to OBJ.

The only hangup I have with OBJ is that it dosent store vertex colours.

Mabe im not the right pewrson to ask- Id go OBJ- a lot of programs read it and its easy to expot and import.

I use obj because practicaly everything uses obj. I can make a model in Wing3D, uv-map it in UVmapper (though i wouldn't), then open it in blender and animate it.

3ds would also be nice if they (discreet) could standerdize it better... Wings, AutoCad, and 3dstudio max read and write it alright but from there your on your own.

I prefer OBJ over 3ds(3ds use to have some limits/problems). And for animation, I like *.x a lot.
