Title: A suggestion for Steve about 3ds exporting
Post by: runter on May 14, 2009, 04:29:55 pm
Hello everybody,
I would like to refer to a topic I posted some days ago in the general forum called 'exporting sequence to 3ds bug' (please read it to update yourselves ;) )
As I exposed there, I *think* there is some loss of data concerning quaternion-to-euler angles conversion when exporting frame sequences to 3ds files.
If you read the own-reply I posted on the same topic, what I figured there out could be a nice workaround ('dumping' the vertex buffer instead of converting quaternions to euler angles). However, as I also said, I have no idea of Steve's code, and what I figured out is that, just a presumption, so I don't even know if my approach is valid.

So, if that could be possible, my suggestion would be to add a new 3ds export option in which you could export 'what is being rendered'

Thanks and sorry if I am absolutely wrong,
J

I second that; IMHO, the data should be taken from the vertex buffer, not from the somewhat lossy Euler angle conversion.
