I'm trying to export a mesh with bone animation to the FBX format, for consumption by Assimp. Although the Assimp website says otherwise, the source code does support FBX files, but only versions 7.1.0 through 7.3.0. When I export to FBX from Blender, the version number is 6.1.0.
Is there a specific reason why the exporter uses 6.1.0 and not a newer version? It seems like the FBX exporter is the most heavily used (and hopefully most heavily developed) exporter in Blender?
Also, is there a major difference between 6.1.0 and 7.1.0? Can I just manually edit the exported file so that Assimp thinks it's getting a v7.1.0 file?
