Creating a 3D model and AR rendering question.

September 23, 2011 - 12:42am #1

Hi,

I am a developer and I am new to Qualcomm SDK. I need to have 3D Arrows overlayed on a video based on various events. I am new to creation of 3D modeling as well, but I read up about Open GL ES and how it renders objects.So, I understand that its basically an array of vertices which forms the object. But my question is - is there any graphics tool with which I can draw the 3D objects that I want and then export those into a ".h" or just export that as an array of vertices? (The way teapot is rendered in the examples using teapot.h).

I will be using the same for both, the Android application and the iPhone application. Both of these use Qualcomm SDK.

Thanks and regards,
Abhijeet

You could also integrate a 3rd party model loader that works with OpenGL ES if you wanted to use different formats and load them directly in code. This will be necessary for animated models, as the .obj format does not include animation information.
