I'm a 3rd year student at the University of Bolton and I'm undertaking a small research project in navmeshing. I want to use COLLADA files as my main source, with it being crossplatform and everything else.
I'm asking for gentle help because while I have a fair bit of experience at coding I'm a total newbie when it comes to COLLADA and its ways and means. Could anybody please tell me, in simple terms and hopefully with a line of code or two, how to get at the vertex data and the vertex ordering data? I found a wonderful piece of code that reads COLLADA triangle data and turns it into an OGRE mesh, and that was helpful to a degree but my brain started to hurt rather rapidly.
I apologise if I'm asking the same question that's been asked twenty times already, but I've been wracking my brains over this all day and for every step I take forwards I seem to take at least three backwards.
