file format the day before yesterday: "obj" is a very common
file format that most 3D modeling software can load and save, and as such it
allows us to exchange (static, non-animated) models with almost any other
Regarding collaboration with other 3D programs, we also need support for a
similarly universal and popular file format that can also handle (key-frame or
This is where I'd love to hear your feed-back:
Which 3D model format that supports animation should the upcoming model
editor be able to import?
The format should ideally be widespread and supported by several or most of the
well known 3D programs (but of course nothing stops us from having the Model
Editor support for importing multiple such file formats, or to add more formats
