SDL::Tutorial::3DWorld::MTL - Support for loading material libraries from MTL files
# Create the object but don't load anything my $mtl = SDL::Tutorial::3DWorld::MTL->new( file => 'mymaterials.mtl', ); # Locate a material in the library $mtl->material('glass');
SDL::Tutorial::3DWorld::MTL provides a basic implementation of an MTL file parser. MTL files are libraries of material (surface) definitions to be consumed (by name) by OBJ models.
Given a file name, it will load the file and parse the contents into an abstract set of material objects. However, no dependency files or textures of the materials are loaded. Any materials that you use on real models will need to be initialised before the objects they are applied to are displayed.
The current implementation is extremely preliminary and functionality will be gradually fleshed out over time.
