    Collada extension?

    I know there is already a MS3d extension, but not everybody uses MilkShape for their models. It would be nice if there was an alternative file importer for the OpenGL extension collection, and I think .dae is a great format to use because it is much more common than MilkShape.

    How about it?

    It certainly would be useful. I think it would be a big project though, the format seems quite complex. It would be interesting if another extension developer would like to tackle it, I think it is out of my league.

    Other 3d animation formats would definitely be great as the main MS3D app costs money also and not a lot of programs support export of it after searching it seems. I found a program called misfitmodel3d however which can convert/make MS3D format models and it seemed to work ok.

    A extension for static .obj models would be great also i think for scenes and objects as it is supported by basically every 3d app these days. I think in the older thread someone said they made a loader but they did not post the code. Maybe a good thing would be to have some sort of code based importers forum thread for people to share certain formats. A general OpenGL snippets thread would also be cool although editing old posts is a issue unless you are a mod so maybe a wiki page would be better for that.

    An .obj model extension is definitely a possibility, but I have a couple of other things I want to finish first.
