The Frame List section only stores child sections and no data.



The Frame List data is stored in a Struct child section.

The Struct section is defined as:

Size (Bytes) Type Variable Name Description
0x04 (4) int32_t frame_count Frame count
frame_count * 0x44 Frame[frame_count] frame_data Array of Frame data

The Struct section continues with an array of Frame data, holding as many as defined by the Frame count.

The Frame data is defined as:

Size (Bytes) Type Variable Name Description
0x24 (36) TMatrix3x3F rotation_matrix Rotation matrix
0x0C (12) TVector3F position Position
0x04 (4) int32_t parent_index Parent Index
0x04 (4) int32_t matrix_flags Matrix creation flags / (see discussion page)

TMatrix3x3F is defined as:

Size (Bytes) Type Description
0x0C (12) TVector3F right Right vector
0x0C (12) TVector3F up Up vector
0x0C (12) TVector3F at At vector

TVector3F is defined as:
