Smile Where to learn direct3d animation


Hi , I'm not new to directx and direct3d I've learned the basics of this program. However I still can't find any good resources on using the direct3d animation. I want to be able to load my meshes and there respective frames in direct3d and animate them. Can anyone direct me to a place with good tutorials on this subject.

google XNA, Game Studio Express imports the content for you , no worries.

There is a free .x/.fx exporter for 3DMax somewhere out there. I think one comes with DX9 SDK

No he wants to know how create some code that loads the animation from a file and into a class or module.

My advice would be to start of in VB6 Dx8 as it has one of the best tutorials there is.

I'm abit rust here, But the bottom line to animation is

1. Open file
2. Get data
3. If data is a frame open frame goto 3
4a. Get data from frame if its another frame goto 3
4b. if data is mesh create mesh
5. get next data
5a. If data is nothing.... phew!!!

...As you can see it can get really complicated so i won't continue. But i have done it. It just takes time and concentration.

You can have my code but i will have to charge you.

VB6:
Set Leade = Nothing
.NET
Leade = Nothing

"Microsoft Visual Basic: Game Programming for Teens 2nd Edition" covers this exact topic. The 1st Edition covers it in VB6, the 2nd Edition covers it in VB.NET 2005.

i have the code somewhere at home, amongst the vb6 backup cds if i EVER get a chance to get back to my own home i'll have a look and post it up.

from what i remember i got the whole thing in one class and used types instead, (cos i'm lazy) where microsoft failed to do.
