as you might have seen I was starting to prepare a kind of database that has working Collada models with working skeletons and different kind of animations that could be applied to it. I am no modeller and actually taking this project as an excuse to get more into modelling software and all the character animation stuff.
So I mainly convert existing models from free sources to collada 1.4.1 right now.
First I wanted to ask if it would make sense to you to have such a ready-to-go models database for vvvv and if you can think of contributing to this as well.
I am especially thinking of rapid prototyping of games. And of course I want to make it more accessible for new users, as I found it extremely hard to get behind all this, too.
Slowly the fog of cunfusion is clearing and I have about 30 different characters and models that I would like to share at one point.
Now there is one problem.
Models are quite big files, so it requires several Gigabytes.
I can not upload this into the contributions and I think GIT is limited to 2 gigs, too.
If I place it on a server it will likely stay the zip file that it is and users cannot make single changes to the database.
So do you have an idea for that?
Best thing would be to have something that can be permanently updated with changes that have been made, like a open git repository or a DropBox folder.
Let me know.
