NAME
       SceneViewer - 3d	editor and viewer for Inventor scenes

SYNOPSIS
       SceneViewer [-e env_file] [file]

DESCRIPTION
       SceneViewer  is	a  program  for	 viewing and interacting with Inventor
       scene graph files (the SGI 3D file format standard).   SceneViewer  was
       written	to  demonstrate	Inventor features, and serves as the basis for
       the IRIS	Explorer Render	Module.

       When SceneViewer	is run,	a window appears containing the	Inventor exam-
       iner viewer and a menu bar. The viewer allows the user to interactively
       change the view of the scene through direct manipulation,  or  indirect
       slider  and  push button	controls.  The menu bar	contains the following
       menus:

       File
	      This menu	supports file reading and writing, and launches	a dia-
	      log for printing to a printer or to PostScript file.

       Edit
	      This  menu  enables copy and paste of 3D data, selecting all ob-
	      jects, and deleting the currently	selected objects.

       Viewing
	      This menu	controls viewing options.  It allows different viewing
	      paradigms	 to  be	employed: the examiner viewer which provides a
	      virtual trackball	interface, the fly-through viewer for  travel-
	      ing  through  expansive data sets, the walk viewer for architec-
	      tural walk-throughs, and the plane viewer	for orthographic  pro-
	      jections.	  The  menu  also enables different types of transpar-
	      ency, fog	effects, antialiasing, and background color controls.

       Selection
	      This menu	allows the different selection policies	to  be	demon-
	      strated.	 A  selection  policy determines how objects get added
	      and removed from the collection of selected objects.

       Editors
	      This menu	launches the material editor  and  transform  sliders.
	      An object	must be	selected for the menu to be active.

       Manips
	      This  menu  allows  different manipulators to act	on the current
	      selection, including the trackball,  handle  box,	 jack,	center
	      ball,  and  transform box.  Manipulators can also	be turned off,
	      in which case selected objects are surrounded with a  red	 wire-
	      frame box	highlight.

       Lights
	      This  menu allows	directional, point, and	spot lights to be cre-
	      ated and edited. It also allows lights to	be turned on and off.

       For more	information on how to use the viewers and editors employed  by
       the scene viewer, please	see SceneViewer's runtime help cards.
