Command line utility using the FBX SDK to convert FBX/Collada/Obj files to more runtime friendly formats. The FBX content is parsed into an in-memory datastructure. Pluggable writers then take this datastructure to generate the output. Send us a pull request if you want the writer for your engine/framework/app to be integrated. We'll build the converter for Windows, Linux and Mac.
The FBX parser is largely based on GamePlay SDK's encoder. We'll try to back-port any bug fixes or improvements.

These binaries are recompiled on any changes in the Git repository, via the travis build
On Windows you'll need to install VC 2015 Redistributable Package https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145
On Linux and Mac, we have to link to the dynamic libraries of the FBX SDK (libfbxsdk.so and libfbxsdk.dylib). We recommend copying libfbxsdk.so to /usr/lib on Linux. Otherwise you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH and set it to the directory you put the .so file.
You'll need premake and an installation of the FBX SDK 2019.0. Once installed/downloaded, set the FBX_SDK_ROOT to the directory where you installed the FBX SDK. Then run one of the generate_XXX scripts. These will generate a Visual Studio/XCode project, or a Makefile.
On Linux and Mac, you can follow Travis build steps in order to build and run it.
