Hi as always with these questions Im new and have done no real 3d work and would like a starting point.

I have blender and would like to make my models in this (Im new to that but I have found a good tutorial for this Smiley )
What is a good format to save the files as?

Im not planing to make my main project into 3d at the moment  but I have made a breakout game in 2d and would like to make it into 3d because its a fairly simple game and its finished Smiley

My plans for 3d games is more of a top down view at the moment but I guess if its 3d it shouldnt be too hard to change where the camera is, right?.

Also if some one knows of a good tutorial will a sample that just works with no extra mucking around by me and with source so I can have a play to get my head around this, and I want it basic, as in only using 3d built into java but of course I guess I will need a file paser of some kind but would like it as bare at possible.

Worry about that after, the book will probably say.

I have found an XML format on the blender website called blend2java and it has an example so I will have a look into that and just have a play around with that. Of course I will keep reading the book also since most people I have read about on the net have recommend that book

ok had a bit of a look and it seems to be ok its just a python script that you run from blender.
seems to work so I guess I will use it and see how I go. There was an example with it how to load the file into java so thats good.

I will have a play and see if I can get my breakout game into 3d which doesnt look like it should be too hard Smiley and see how I go from there
