    Basic 3d models & texturing concepts plz!!

    Hello, I am creating a 3d mmorpg using opengl.

    I am trying to learn a good way to create a 3d model, create a texture for it, possibly animate it, and use it in my game


    So far I have created a simple model in 3d studio, and using the .ase file format was able to use the model in opengl. But, I cant get texturing to work at all. Nor can I find a good way to create the texture for the model!

    Does anyone have any experience making and texturing models? And / or using them in games?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Did you add texture coords to the model in 3D studio? (UVMap modifier). Also, when exporting from 3DS, did you check the box that says `Export Texture Coords' (or something?'. Check your ASE file for the token MESH_TVERT or something - see if you actually have texture coords in there.

    Thats just for starters, will need some code if these aren't the solution

    I do the same way, just i wrote a converter form ase to my own format because ase is extremely large, but it is the easyest way to get animated mesh info from max. So texturing: the easyest method is to draw the texture first, then add UVWmap and UVWunwarp to your model. Go and find some tutors about uvwunwarp on the net, there are a few pretty good. So load the drawn texture to your model and align it for every face with uvwunwarp. If you get a little experienced it will go really fast for high poly count mdels too. And when exporting ase check texture coordinates, then you just simply use them with glTexCoords. Easy )
