Hello

Forgive me my bad translation, I'm French and through Google translator.
I can not find the ability to export FBX?
CityEngine does not offer me the output to VIEW!
can inform me please?

thank you

Hi !


If you have bought a 'CityEngine Vue' version, then you can only export to .vob, the Vue file format.

Check here for the other CityEngine versions :

thank you Matthias,

I just realized.
by cons I have a worry when I export in  VUE 10 XStream.
C.E makes me more VOB files and it is impossible to simply connect everything.
I read in the forum: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/58217-Import-in-Vue

you're advocating,
do you Have to move or Individual buildings are all buildings in a vob (there 's export options for this in CityEngine)

I can not find this option in the window of the exporter C.E



Can you tell me where this option is it ... Unless my version can not do.

Merci

hi !


multiple things to say :


the export setting I meant is under Granularity > File ( 2 options : Use File Size Limit and Create 1 File per shape. )
the second option generates 1 vob file for each single shape
the first option generates as many files as needed, using the File Size Limit in MegaBytes, by default set to 500 MB.
the File Size Limit uses a max of 500 MB RAM for the export, but then at the end optimizes the files again, so in the end, they're not 500 MB, but can be a lot less. (this may be a little confusing).

thus, your files are all around 100MB. If you increase this value, you'll get less files. entering 0 is 'no file size limit'.

MERCI !!!!

Great, it works really well! A big city with cars = Only one object, so easy to place in the scene VUE.

I looked everywhere but I have not found a detailed manual in text form (pdf, HTML)? There are available?
