Loading Meshes Dynamically
How do you load new meshes (not objs) dynamically?

MeshPtr m="mesh.mesh";
Mesh m2; m2.load("mesh.mesh");

Thanks! (I had this before but I didn't see the models because issue was I wasn't updating the active index of an array).


Another question, is the only way to modify vertex positions of a mesh on the GPU through vertex shaders? Or is there a way to modify them through code (thats not horribly slow like modifying the MeshBase then using .setRender())

RE: Loading Meshes Dynamically
Set render has additional parameter that can disable mesh optimization
But It's still slow
Direct editing of MeshRender is not currently supported

Without the ability to directly edit the MeshRender, what would be the most efficient way to render a dynamic mesh (in my case 100k+ polygons that all have very specific paths)?

I'll add editing of MeshRender to the roadmap
