Reflection Map on Export

Post by Clearsky1 » Mon Jul 01, 2013 2:56 pm

Hi,
Understand from a 2010 post that reflection map is only available in v2.0.

Is that available now? Cant find it upon export.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Do you mean environment maps (aka cubemaps)? Yes, these can be exported when exporting your model by checking "Cubemaps" in the Export Lighting settings.

What this does is export the cubemaps created for each IrrCache to allow you to integrate reflections into a realtime engine. The cubemaps files are named with the pattern:

ModelExportName_X_Y_Z

where

ModelExportName is created using your SketchUp filename and any templates you have setup in Tools->LightUp->Filename Templates

X,Y,Z are coordinates the of the cubemap to allow you to place it your engine.
