    It does support bones. I'm not sure how, though, but just read whatever is around the Model, ModelBone and ModelBoneCollection classes :).

    Have you asked this question on the Microsoft forums?


    There have been several threads on there regarding this sort of thing.

    As a person who has been working with XNA for several months, I haven't seen a single resource on this anywhere which leads me to believe it is going to be very difficult, especially considering how poor the documentation is for much of the SDK.

    I was told to do the same thing because I wanted to pull in XML files through the content pipeline... I gave up and just used a file processor until some better tutorials come along.
