PowerRender Models questions

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have some PRO model questions : 1/ If I export a non textured mesh from 3DSMax 4 and open it within PRO Editor, it works perfectly and I can see the mesh with no problem. Now when I just change SimpleObject example to this file, I can''t see it ? is there any reason ? 2/ What units PRO exporter uses to generate PRO mesh ? I am always asking myself what unit should I use and if it respect the same object size ? Thanks, Amadrias

1. SimpleObject doesn''t set any lights. Try using the DirectionLight example as a starting point instead.

2. PR doesn''t define meaning to units. For example if you make a 100x100x100 cube in MAX (default units), it will store those exact values. What a distance of 100 means in your program is up to you.

1/ Thanks, I supposed that it was a lighting problem...

2/ But if I take your example : a 100 * 100 *100 cube in max. If I setup a camera and place the object in 0,0,0. Will it means that I will have to put the camera at : z - 100 - PR_CAMERA->nearclip ?

Thanks,

Amadrias
