SceneViewer - 3d editor and viewer for Inventor scenes
SceneViewer is a program for viewing and interacting with Inventor scene graph files (the
SGI 3D file format standard).
SceneViewer was written to demonstrate Inventor features, and serves as the
basis for the IRIS Explorer Render Module.
When SceneViewer is run, a window appears containing the Inventor
examiner viewer and a menu bar. The viewer allows the user to interactively
change the view of the scene through direct manipulation, or
indirect slider and push button controls.
The menu bar contains the following menus:
For more information on how to use the viewers and editors
employed by the scene viewer, please see SceneViewers runtime help cards.
This menu supports file reading and writing, and launches a
dialog for printing to a printer or to PostScript file.
This menu enables copy and paste of 3D data, selecting all objects,
and deleting the currently selected objects.
This menu controls viewing options.
It allows different viewing paradigms to be employed: the
examiner viewer which provides a virtual trackball interface, the
fly-through viewer for traveling through expansive data sets, the
walk viewer for architectural walk-throughs, and the
plane viewer for orthographic projections.
The menu also enables different types of transparency,
fog effects, antialiasing, and background color controls.
This menu allows the different selection policies to be demonstrated.
A selection policy determines how objects get added and removed from
the collection of selected objects.
This menu launches the material editor and transform sliders.
An object must be selected for the menu to be active.
This menu allows different manipulators to act on the current
selection, including the
trackball, handle box, jack, center ball, and
transform box. Manipulators can also be turned off, in which case selected objects
are surrounded with a red wireframe box highlight.
This menu allows directional, point, and spot lights to be
created and edited. It also allows lights to be turned on and off.
Note that the source code to
SceneViewer comes with the
Open Inventor 3d Toolkit.
The following command line options are allowed:
