Parent & Children
Hello,

tks for your support, i try "Forward Rendering" and its faster with objects+terrain.

Now i have a question about the 3DStudio objects with parent+children : how to move/rotate/... them ? (the children)

I see that the Mesh Editor produce (correctly from Panda exporter .x) an object with a number of meshes == to the segments (parent+children) number.

I see that i can operate on the single mesh, but this without know the Hierarchy, so how can i move/rotate/... the segment (parent/children) correctly ?

(In others engines the shape is organized in object->segment->face so i can operate on the single segment).

Tks
Corrado

Hi,

you can select different mesh parts in Mesh Editor using - = keyboard buttons

in Esenthel Engine Mesh has no parent->child relation, a Mesh is just an array of parts (Mshc's)
shortly speaking something like that

Code:
struct Mesh
{
  Mshc mshc[];
};

.. yes, i can operate with the c++ code on a single mesh : this is enough for the doors : parent->children,
but how do with objects like tank or missile launcher that has parent->children->subchildren ?
