    Resources about mesh

    Hello everyone,

    I was looking for mesh related tutorials/books, but I found only a few examples and no books.

    I tried with all that came to my mind in google.

    It will be of great help if someone can point me to a good set of mesh related tutorials or books.

    thanks.

    Do you want info on loading things like .obj and .x - or rendeing a vertex buffer?

    tonyo_au, thanks for the reply.

    I'm actually looking for information on loading, rendering of mesh information along with the animations if any.

    I want to learn about adding some clothes to the any character, changing some shapes within a mesh.

    I want to know how these things are handled in any rendering engine in some detail.

    It will be very helpful if I can be pointed to some resources.

    thanks.

    This is a big topic you are not going to find a single tutorial to cover it all. Break it down into topics like rendering meshes and search for thinks like vertex buffers or VBO. Get to understand how to render a simple mesh like a box first then move to non-animated objects like .obj or .x. Finally attack boning/skinning.

    Before I can suggest tutorials I need to know what you know about OpenGL. Have you programmed using it before?

    Thanks again tonyo_au.

    I did some beginner opengl (v3.3) programming like loading a .obj model with a simple texture on it (without any anomation)in c++.

    There are mesh 2 formats I know of that support animations .x and .dae.
    Since you know that basics of loading a .obj, I have this link for .x

    http://www.gamedev.net/page/resource...-directx-r2221

    I have not used this code so I don;t know how good it is but the article should take you a long way.
