What's the status of .osg files?

Hi all!

At the place where I work, we've used OSG for about 10 years; first OSG 3.0 (I think), then 3.2, and we're now transitioning to 3.6. So some of our models are .osg's.


For the first time, I'm the one who's building the solution and since I want to reduce the work done (i.e compilation/copy time), I've removed most of the things that we're not using (i.e. the plug-ins).


I found myself removing the deprecated plug-ins via BUILD_OSG_DEPRECATED_SERIALIZERS.


And then I haven't been able to load the .osg files in our software.


- So I assume the .osg model files should no longer be used? (We're using that and .ive model files.)
- If that's the case, what's the suggested replacement for text format models?

- Do we know when the support will be completely removed from OSG?



Thanks!

Hi Alexandre,


Officially .osg and .ive are deprecated in favour of the native serializer baed formats which are .osgt (ascii), .osgb (binary) and .osgx (xml version).  The new serializer based formats were introduced in 3.0.


While the .osg and .ive formats are deprecated we're not about to remove them from support, the deprecation is more about "don't use" these as they can't support all the functionality that the modern native formats can.


For you own project I would recommend moving over to writing .osgt and .osgb by default, and steadily moving over the models you have across.



Cheers,

Robert
