Cool. I can generate a plain text file (.txt). I haven't really nailed down the specifics of the format, because I had no way to bring it into Cinema. I guess in its simplest form, each object's data would be output to a separate file, but I guess it would be cooler to come up with a format that can take the whole scene and apply data to it.
I'm trying to figure out what would be the best delimeter, since I would most likely use commas in the vector definitions. (x,y,z) Maybe just a TAB or a SPACE?
anyway...I'm thinking line 1 is object name
line 2 starts data. (position vector then rotation vector) each line of data equals 1 frame in cinema. I should use scale vector also, but my initial use of this doesn't really need it.
This would be just fine for the single object per export method. The multiple object format would have to be a little more detailed.
perhaps with some sort of end of object characters:
Is any of this making any sense?
Thanks for your help
