::Discuss:: Engine animation system.
What do you guys think about this engine animation system? what I think is that you should be able to set key frames min-max lets say 5-20 = walk, etc. And be enable to have all the animations in the same file, instead of 100 animation files.

Lets discuss this.

Alright, So you want xx animations files * models in your game instead of 1 file for each model?

IMO less data in one file - less problems.

Why is that less problems? 20 files animation files instead of 1 file? I don't see the logic in that if you know the frame's for each animation.

Re: ::Discuss:: Engine animation system.
I guess it's a matter of taste and being used to one or the other.
I prefer separate animations because of the following:
- you can make an animation have more/less frames at any time and you don't need to tell the game about it, as it will play an animation from start to end.
- it's easier to create loop animations because in your animation program you have a single timeline which you can loop (because the timeline ends - starts again)

Made sense thanks.
