Importing Static Models
In order to import static models from an external source, selectfrom the main menu. Choose and select one of the appropriate file format importers:
- DAE Import
- FBX Import
- KML Import
- KMZ Import
- OBJ Import
Clickand depending on the file format, different options will be available for import.
Imports can also be performed by Drag-and-Dropping the file directly into the 3d viewport. Depending on whether the file contains geolocation data ( kml / kmz ), the file is either automatically placed at the correct geolocated coordinates or at the mouse position ( ground plane ).
KMZ / KML Imports are always done as static models, whereas DAE and OBJ files may be imported as static model or as shapes.
