Programs I found

I found these programs to capture OpenGL 3D scene :

3D Ripper captures geometry, textures and shaders. OpenGL Extractor captures just geometry ...

General questions about such programs

What is Your experience with these programs? Which of these programs would You recommmend? Do You know other such programs? Were there any problems with them, or are there problems with them in general? Are there programs which work best overall, or is it specific to certain 3d applications?

What I need to do?

I am looking to program which can capture 3d geometry for study purposes. And also for a program to capture 3D animation (frames of 3d animation).

I tried only 3D Ripper because application I try to capture data from is on Direct 3D. 3D Ripper works with at least Direct 3D 9, this application has Direct 3D 6. Are there applications which work with older version of Direct 3D?

Thank You very much. :)

    directly from your link: "3D Ripper DX supports only DirectX 6.x, 8.x and 9.x applications" – bubu Jun 14 '11 at 13:28
  • Thanks. :) I apologize for my mistake. It seems support that D3D 6 support is in beta, so that might be reason why it is not working ... – user712092 Jun 14 '11 at 13:46

The link to OGLE is wrong — it points to some sort of screensaver. OGLE works as a plugin to GLInterceptor and allegedly dumps all OpenGL geometry properly, but OGLE's creators, Eyebeam Research, seemed to have dumped the site where the project was hosted (http://ogle.eyebeamresearch.org/, which isn't replying since 2010). You can still download it using the Wayback Machine but I haven't tested it yet.
