Howdy guys, it’s me again.
Because no one offered to write a collada importer (right here), and I really like the collada format, I was so stupid to say I’d write one, and now I guess I’m stuck to it for the next days/weeks/months.
Anyways, I’m making it in C++, and just like all the other somethingToEggConverters.
I’m doing this in my spare spare time, so don’t expect this to be done in the next release already
If somebody offers to help coding, that would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: Oh, sigh. I first started writing it in collada DOM, until I noticed that it came with another 4 thirdparty libraries, libxml2, boost, pcre and tinyxml. FCollada depends on its turn on cg(no prob) but also on DevIL(ahhgr).
Does panda have some builtin xml parser? Otherwise I think I’m going to grab something like libxml or tinyxml, cuz I think the last thing Panda3D needs is another 5 thirdparty libs.
