Blender file format documentation

(kevin3d) #1

is there documentation re: Blender’s file format? I did a search and got plenty of pointers to converters, but what I really need is the format itself.
I couldn’t finad anything at either.

The blendfile is not really a regular ‘fileformat’, it is just a memorydump, it basically contains the specifications for the data and the data itself. That is also why files can be loaded into other Blender versions no matter what version it was saved with.
