i want to exchange 3d model data with a director app and a
3rd party application at runtime.
because the data must go both ways and happen in the
background, i was planning on doing the interop in a script xtra.
for what its worth, my 3rd party app can support either 3ds
or obj format -but i think this is irrelevant since i know of no
converters that can
be used at runtime
convert both ways between 3ds/obj & w3d
if anyone knows otherwise then pls advise..
ok. so i know i've got runtime access to 3d cast members
through lingo, so worst case, i can use lingo to marshal the model
data between my xtra and the 3d cast member
but perhaps there's a more direct way via a 3d cast member
XTRA interface? -have trawled thro the extensive (not!) Director
xdk documentation and also googled for one but found nothing so
or maybe i'm better off simply doing the whole thing in lingo
any ideas/insights would be greatfully appreciated
