I am involved with a research that deals with 3D graphics. I am very new to 3D graphics. In my research I have to move a 3D object based on some information queried by processing a video. Viewer's only interaction with the 3D environment is, changing the camera viewpoint.
I am not that worried about the speed or efficiency at this level. What I need is easy to learn and easy to program 3D game engine, I suppose.
I'd like to know about any open 3D model file format supported by the game engine, as I will have to use custom made 3D models using 3D modelling techniques of computer vision.
I tried Panda3D, but the most significant drawback was it's inability to use .max files directly (most of the 3D models available were of this format). Panda3D was quite simple when it came to scripting.
Thank you in advance.
