Imageviewer with lots of supported formats [Irfanview] (there is a plugin for .DDS)

RAF contents

It must comply with these restrictions :

-Textures size max: 15 mb
-Geometry & script size max: 1mb
-Actor size max: 1.20mb
-Actor number max: 128
-Cameras: 1
-Lights: 2 (ambient + point)
-Scripts: 1
-Models: 64 (with 8 animations each model)

RAF Scene (.XML)

Models (.DAE)

DAE (digital asset exchange) is an XML file that contains COLLADA content. COLLADA is an open standard created by sony for interactive 3D applications. Is used to export and import files from 3-D authoring applications (Maya, SoftImage, and 3ds max) in .dae format https://collada.org/

There is a collada plugin for [Blender] (link is at bottom of page). Both blender and the collada plugin are free and open source projects

Models can be geometric 3D objects, or 3D light points

  • Typical objects and names used:
    • bg.dae
    • ambient_light.dae
    • point_light.dae

Models files contains references to the libraries that were used by the 3D app that build the object

  • Typical entries found in models (3d objects)
    • <asset>
    • <library_physics_scenes>
    • <library_images>
    • <library_materials>
    • <library_effects>
    • <library_geometries>
    • <library_visual_scenes>
    • <scene>
  • Typical entries found in models (3d lights)
