Hi all -- If you attended the OSG BOF at SIGGRAPH, then you know that Bob
Kuehne and I are working to develop an OpenFlight export plugin for OSG that
will allow OSG-based apps to write OpenFlight files.
I'm pleased to announce that the design work is complete and has been
approved, and we're moving forward with the implementation phase. A press
release follows.

Skew Matrix and Blue Newt Enter OpenFlight Exporter Implementation Phase

Louisville, Colorado, and Ann Arbor, Michigan

September 3, 2007


As was announced at the SIGGRAPH '07 OSG BOF, Blue Newt Software and Skew
Matrix Software have been contracted to develop an OpenFlight export plugin
for OpenSceneGraph (OSG). Once complete, the plugin will be contributed back
to the OSG community for inclusion in the OSG distribution.


This software will give OSG applications the ability to export their scene
graphs as OpenFlight files. Supported OSG and OpenFlight features will be
comparable to the features supported by the current OpenFlight import
plugin. The export plugin will support OpenFlight versions 15.7, 15.8, and


The design phase of the OpenFlight export plugin is complete and has been
approved by the client, who wishes to remain anonymous. Further information
will be posted to the OSG Users Email list as the implementation phase
progresses. The plugin should be fully implemented in Q1 2008.


The OpenFlight export plugin is one of many targeted OSG development
projects that Blue Newt and Skew Matrix have been contracted to develop.
Paul Martz, Skew Matrix president, demonstrated another project at the OSG
BOF, a beta version of OpenGL Occlusion Query support in OSG. Blue Newt and
Skew Matrix are working with several companies and government agencies on
targeted OSG development projects, and more information will be posted to
the OSG Users email list as it becomes available.



Blue Newt Software LLC and Skew Matrix Software LLC offer a variety of
products and services including training, books, custom development, and
support contracts for customers using OpenSceneGraph.
