Importing from VRED
WARNING .vpb import requires a VRED Pro or Design installation and a VRED valid license. Also, the path to the VRED executable must be set in the Pixyz preferences.
When importing a .vpb file, a dedicated window will appear above the default import window.
.vpb supported features:
- 3D model (nurbs/mesh)
- Transform and material variants
- Variant sets
- Ambient occlusion*
*To import ambient occlusion as vertex colors, open Autodesk VRED and set ExportVertexColors to True in Preferences > FileIO > FBX > Export :
Due to the complexity and the large possibilities offered by VRED, Pixyz does not guarantee a full extract of .vpb files.
Here are the known-limitations regarding VRED scene conversion using Pixyz:
- Environment: lights and cameras, along with environments textures are not imported
- Multi pass, layered and decal materials are not imported
- For animation import: animations directly placed on meshes are not imported
