In the previous chapter we covered working in 3D using PlayStation Mobile. However, we only made use of the simplest primitives, a triangle and a simple textured cube. In a real game you are going to want to make use of more complex shapes, animated and textured models exported from a 3D graphical application such as 3D Studio Max, Maya, or Blender. Fortunately, PlayStation Mobile provides tools for importing such models, as well as a library for loading and displaying them, Sce.PlayStation.HighLevel.Model. In addition to handling 3D models, it also provides classes to simplify the use of textures, lights, and shaders.
