Tom said the essential. :)
We had to understand both the binary encoding and format layout of
this ugly thing,
and directly write from the py scripts… Highly frustrating and
time-consuming tasks, esp.
since FBX has some very odd inconsistencies and odd & picky expectations.
Note that armature and animation support on import side are on my TODO,
just have to find
some time for this, bugs are another frustrating and time consuming task. :/
(still heavy WIP).
