Are you using the Advanced trial version? you can't import gdb with the basic I think. Also your inernal RAM might be a little low for running CE, although the file you posted is so small that it shouldn't matter.
Glad you found a workaround.
Not all is good yet with the GDB import/export. Some things also need to be fixed in the libraries we have access so far. This will gradually become better. :)
RAM : Nope, the visual quality is independent of that.
What makes CE screenshots look good is usually :
- Ambient Occlusion
- setting the Scene Layer settings, such as :
* sun direction
* AO settings
* shadow intensity
Additionally, setting your materials you create with CGA, such as specularity or reflectivity.
Hope this helps. :)
When I try importing data from a file geodatabase I am seeing a window that does not look like the one in the manual. It is missing the section where you can decide what comes over in the process.
File Geodatabase Import window (File-->Import)
CE Manual - Importing data from a file geodatabase
It allows the user to import the data, but there is nothing displayed in the Viewport and attributes are stripped off of the layers. As a test, I took one of the FGDB layers, created a shapefile out of it, and tried to import that. It worked but you could only view the layer from underneath the polygons in the Viewport.
Dragging and dropping the file geodatabase folder from Windows Explorer to the Viewport opens up the File Geodatabase Import window with all of the functionality. The resulting shapes and graphs have all of their attribution but they are still invisible in the Viewport until a rule is applied to them.
