On your site you say, “.blend file format is the ultimate 3D file format.” Are there documented specs for this format? I have not been able to find them (though they’re probably under my nose :o )

hrm…thats just my opinion. but how it works makes it so much easier fo the artist than any other file format i’ve seen. there are no documents either about the file format. however you can go and check out the code over at

it’s basically that forum that you see i just used phpbb because of what i knew about it and it would amke it much easier fo people to search through all of the tips if they needed something.

You can also append lighting setups, worlds,anything from that menu. This can be VERY helpful if you set up some directories that categorize by type what you need. For example, I have folders named TechMaterial,Ambient(for worlds),SkinFX,Lighting and so on. One blend file can also hold all of your chairs,tables, etc… Appending is a very useful feature…I like it :wink:
