 3rd Party Libraries

OpenFX uses three 3rd party libraries, the Visualization Toolkit - the built libraries are included in the OpenFX source distribution. The ASSIMP multi format import library is used to support COLLADA, Wavefront and Lightwave imports. The 3DSFTP is used to support 3D studio import. OpenFX will work fine without these libraries, but you would need to remove the associated projects from the SLN build files, if building from source. We provide via thes links - ZIP files of out builds for these libraries - with minor modification specific to OpenFX. If you wish to use them you can download and expand the arciives. Unless you place them in the same folders as we have you will need to modify the Include and Library paths of the projects that use them. We use c:\programs\assimp and c:\programs\library-builds\3dsftk respectively.
