MAT3 Chunk Description MDL file

Postby » Sun Jul 12, 2020 1:02 am

Is there a link to the chunk definitions in the PV44 MDL file format?
I’m stuck on the MAT3 chunk and cannot locate any info on it.

(If this forum is an inappropriate one for this question, I apologize. Please point me to the correct one.)

I don't think we publish specs on our binary file format sections. Typical they map to structs in our source code so the headers are documentation enough for our purposes. The tools go through a 3 step process from max, to .x, to xml, to mdl. I believe you can have the mdl compiler output the intermediate xml file. XML being the last step before mdl, is likely going to give you the most detail about what is going into the final mdl file.
