Finding good md2 models
« on: February 26, 2006, 09:45:34 pm »
Hi all!

I have a question not realy related to jpct, rather to the general work flow :). I'm fiddling around with modeling and animation of md2 models to use with jpct, but have problems finding good examples on the net.

It might also be a problem with importing into Milkshape - the models I have don't have skeletons or animation after import. Is that a Milkshape problem or is a skeleton optional for md2 files?

On a side note: how does jpct load md2s? Are the skeletons discarded and "only" meshes generated?

I don't want to use other models, I'd just like to see how other people have done animation, its not a trivial task ;)

Can someone help?

thx

I've once uploaded some examples here: http://www.jpct.net/download/md2/

About MD2: It doesn't contain any skeleton, only the animation's keyframes. I guess the "normal" way is to model them in Milkshape using a skeleton, animate them and export them to keyframe animated MD2s...but i don't even own Milkshape, so i'm not really sure.

thx! If md2 does not contain skeletons, its no wonder I can't open them ;)  I'll just continue experimenting.
