Spliting up Single Animation

RE: Spliting up Single Animation
I might be wrong here so feel free to correct me.

I find it strange that the recommended file format for models is DAE (according to the wiki) but from what I've read DAE does not seem to support multi track animations, which is the preferred method of animation in the engine.

Am I mistaken with this?

Reload the original model with the single big animation and repeat until all animations have been clipped and re-exported.
Esenthel would that work / is it correct or is there something missing?
Hi, please wait for next SDK, it will feature "-added new method Animation::clip(Flt start_time, Flt end_time)"
which you can use in the codes:
anim.load
anim.clip
anim.save

Yes, dae does not support multi-track animations, lately FBX support was also added, and it does support multi-track animations, so you can try using it too.

RE: Spliting up Single Animation
EE if I send you the code for this, can you add it to the Animation Tools dropdown list? It loads a .txt file with the animations, clips them and re-export.
I think would be very useful and convienient to some users (including me) if the funciontality to clip animations based on a text list was already inside the editor.

RE: Spliting up Single Animation
Any progess on this? Is it implemented in the editor already? I am asking because I have a bunch of non-splitted animated models here and I am thinking about moving back to esenthel for a project.
