Title(s): COB, Caligari trueSpace object file format

Version ID: v6.0

Date released: 2002-07

Date: - Date the format was created (YYYY-MM-DD)

Creator(s): Caligari Corporation

Contributor(s): Caligari Corporation

Relationships: - Relationships that the engineering format has with organizations, other formats, etc.

  • Previous Version(s): - Any engineering format that is a previous version format of this one.
  • Contains: - Any engineering format that is contained by this format.
  • Syntax Format(s): - Any syntax formats that the engineering format may use.

Description: trueSpace7.6 is a fully-featured 3D authoring package that will let you model, texture, light, animate and render 3D content. As well as traditional images and movies, you can also make 3D content for online shared spaces, and for Virtual Earth.

Magic numbers:

The header consists of 32 bytes as follows:
Size     Type Value                                         Description
9 bytes  char "Caligari "                                   Identifies Caligari file
6 bytes  char "V00.01"                                      Version number of file.  This document describes version 00.01 files
1 byte   char "A" for ASCII or "B" for binary               Specifies whether file is in ASCII format or binary format
2 bytes  char "LH" for little endian or "HL" for big endian Intel based machines are little endian and currently all Caligari files are too.
13 bytes char "             "                               Leave as blank spaces
1 byte   char "\n" Newline character                        Newline
