Title: .An8 to .egg
Post by: gamefreak13 on March 16, 2009, 07:28:30 pm
Im using panda3d (disney-created game development library for python) and i need some way to keep my animation and convert my .an8 to .egg   Is this possible?

Can't you just save the file as .egg? Or do you need some kind of software for this. I just made a mesh and saved it as "cool.egg" and when I view it it is viewed as an .egg file.

Erm...Spicy, that is not how you save to a 3rd-party file format.

gamefreak13, the best bet would be to animate it in a program other than anim8or that already has a converter for it, because currently the anim8or scripting language doesn't support the exporting of animations. That, or find someone to build a 3rd party converter that converts .an8 files to .egg. If you only want static inanimate objects converted then you can either export to .obj or .3ds and look for a .obj/.3ds to .egg converter or if the .egg format is ASCII and not Binary then you or someone can make a .egg exporter using ASL.

Opps my bad (*Feels slightly embarrased*), Blender can do this you see so I figured.

I'm not the converter guy  ;)
