1 goat3d
2 ------
3 A 3D scene, character, and animation file format specification, library, and tools.
5 Goat3D is a hierarchical 3D scene, character, and animation file format set,
6 targeting mostly real-time applications (such as games). The goat3d
7 specification defines 2 complimentary file formats:
8 * The main goat3d file format defines meshes, lights, cameras, environmental
9 parameters, materials, and transformation hierarchies.
10 * The animation file format defines a sequence of keyframes and interpolation
11 parameters, for any number of nodes, defined in the main scene file.
14 This project provides the specification of the file formats, a simple library
15 with a clean C API for reading and writing files in the goat3d scene and
16 animation file formats, as well as a number of tools dealing with such files.
18 Specifically, at the moment (early development stage), the following are
19 included in various degrees of completion:
20 * *libgoat3d*, a library for reading and writing goat3d scene and animation files.
21 * *maxgoat*, a goat3d scene and animation exporter for autodesk 3dsmax 2014.
22 * *ass2goat*, a universal 3D asset conversion utility based on the excellent
23 assimp library, from a huge number of 3D file formats to the goat3d file
24 format.
25 * *goatview*, a 3D scene and animation preview tool, based on OpenGL.
26 * *goatprim*, a procedural 3D model (primitive) generator for quick testing.
28 The following are planned for the near future:
29 * *blendgoat*, an exporter for [http://www.blender.org/ Blender].
