3DS Loader "destroys" modells.Any ideas ?
Hello together, I've started to explore Java3D some time ago and now I have to use it to create a relatively important element of an application that I write for my diploma thesis in Computing Science.
I got some architectural models of my university that have been created by other students in 3DS Max 8.I have to use them for generating a kind of 'walk-through' of the university.
I exported the files to *.3DS and I use the 3DS loader "Loader3DS" from Microcrowd (see www.j3d.org" under "Loaders") to load them into my Java3D scene.
So far so good, the files are loaded but they are always distorted or destroyed somehow. There are shapes missing and some shapes are placed somewhere else as where they should be.
Has anybody an idea where I should start to look for solutions ? I will try another loader that's for sure but I don't hope this will make too much difference.
By the way: Any comments or ideas on how to realize a generated "walk-through" - no user interaction allowed so far - are also welcome !
