Compressed archive created by ALZip, a file compression and decompression program; saved in a proprietary format but can be extracted on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms with the ALZip software; may incorporate encryption and password protection for securing the archive.
The EGG format also incorporates intelligent compression techniques for creating smaller file sizes. It also supports Unicode and therefore is useful for multi-lingual archives.
NOTE: The EGG format was introduced with version 8 of ALZip.
3D model format used by Panda3D, a 3D engine designed primarily for game development; defines all transforms, including joint transforms, relative to the model's parent node; all vertices are defined using global coordinates; can be viewed with PView (Panda Viewer), which is included with the Panda3D software.
Panda 3D is developed and maintained by the Panda3D Development Team at the Carnegie Mellon Entertainment Technology Center.
