I am working on a 3D OpenGL|ES game for iPad. All the models are created in Blender. How should I go about getting my models into my game?

I have the following requirements of my models:

  1. One texture map
  2. Material
  3. Skeletal animation data
  4. Attachables / Socket Points

You need a file format readable on iOS, which technically is anything, but if you need a place to start the PowerVR SDK has tools for making and reading POD files.

Be sure to grab the correct SDK depending on the OpenGL ES version you are targeting (OpenGL ES 1.1 if you don't know yet).

From Blender 2.5+ you can export to Collada (DAE) files, then import them in to this to make PODs:

Use this script in blender http://www.innerloop.biz/code/objc.py.zip

Then look at this sample project http://innerloop.biz/code/ExportTest.zip

    \$\begingroup\$ The purpose of this site is to be a repository of questions and their answers, and to that end, "just Google for it," is rarely a good answer on its own. Furthermore it's actually difficult to Google for the content, purpose and use of the linked scripts. \$\endgroup\$
