NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     SceneViewer - 3d editor and viewer	for Inventor scenes

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     SceneViewer [-e env_file] [file]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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:

	  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

	  This menu allows directional,	point, and spot	lights to be created
	  and edited. It also allows lights to be turned on and	off.

     For more information on how to use	the viewers and	editors	employed by
     the scene viewer, please see SceneViewer's	runtime	help cards.
