File Instance

This tool creates an object which instances specified Realsoft 3D project file (.r3d).

The object is visualized as a bounding box, representing the actual bounding box of the referred project.

The created file instance object can be transformed similar to any geometric object.

Because the actual data resides on a disk, File Instance objects can be used for constructing complex scenes.

Only geometric objects, materials and particle effects are loaded from the specified project.

To use the tool to instance a project:

1. Click the tool to activate it.

2. Select the desired .r3d file through the shown tool control bar.

3. Click the Accept button.

Instead of accepting the tool by clicking the Accept button, you can enter two points through the view window to define bounding box for the project.

The property window allows the user to disable any of the three chunks.
