I just read a post on the beta-testers forum saying that they want 2.0 to be released in three weeks (easter), unless some huge bug appears, which is unlikely IMHO. Smile

That is correct. We aim for a release in 3 weeks. Let's make it happen!

Btw, please do not expect too much from DeleD's animation. It's suitable for animating simple things like elevators, doors, billboards etc but nothing fancy beyond that really. For now, it's aimed at animating level-parts, not organics like characters (although with a little patience, animating characters is certainly possible).

Oh I know, I know how this goes =) (I been here for a while and seen how Deled has grown up) But still, it will give new life to the editor it self and our creations so its a ++ all around.

Only thing I have to ask is, will it be cross portable to other game engines?

Well, you can write your own import/export plugins to use with your own software/engine. DeleD allready has a few importers/exporters which can be used with quite alot of engines. Smile

Yeah its really up to the pipeline to your engine and if your engine supports animation (usually the case heh). All it is data, just gotta know how to parse it.

I'm looking forward to animation myself, even if it may be simple. My importer for jMonkey shall be upgraded in a month then hehe Smile

It will be, but not in 2.0 just yet. I plan to write a BVH exporter plugin for DeleD somewhere between 2.0 and 2.1 because that format seems to be widely supported (if I am mistaken about that, please do correct me!). DirectX .X and other fileformats are next as we definately realize the importance of being able to connect with other apps out there.

Btw, as all info is written to the DXS, obviously, anybody can write a converter of some sort when 2.0 comes out. Just in case you don't want to wait for any plugin. Like Starnick said, it's just data, and it's right there waiting for you in the DXS. Wink

Speaking of BVH...someone at jmonkey found a treasure trove of motion capture data provided by the Carnegie Mellon university for free (commercial use even), here's a link:

Cannot wait to get my hands on this. Are the old plugins compatible?

Regarding exporting animations:
BVH is just bones, you will loose all connectivity to the mesh. DirectX is better in my opinion.

Very good point, I didn't realize that! I'll work on our DirectX exporter/importer instead. Thanks for the mention! Smile
