NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivdowngrade - converts Inventor 2.1 files to the Inventor 2.0 and 1.0

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivdowngrade [-v targetVersion] [infile outfile | infile ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivdowngrade reads the input file infile and converts it to	the Inventor
     format specified by -v targetVersion , either 1.0 or 2.0. If the -v
     option is not specified, an Inventor V2.0 file will be generated. The
     input file	can be in Inventor or VRML format. The output will always be
     in	ascii format.  If no output file is specified, ivdowngrade writes to
     stdout. If	no input file is specified as well, ivdowngrade	reads from

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivdowngrade -v 1.0	foo.iv moo.iv
	   Downgrades the file foo.iv to Inventor V1.0 format, writing to

     ivdowngrade goo.iv
	   Downgrades the file goo.iv to Inventor V2.0 format, writing to

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Because of	differences between the	1.0 and	2.0 file formats, some data
     may be lost during	the conversion to 1.0. For instance, the 2.0 file
     format for	SoSeparator contains fields for	caching	and culling, but the
     1.0 format	for SoSeparator	has no fields. This information	is lost	during
     the conversion process.
     No	data is	lost going from	the 2.1	to the 2.0 format.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]
