Hello everybody,

I hope this is the right forum.....

Is there any documentation about conversion to BinaryGeometry with AOPT tool? And exists the general and complete documentation for all methods and parameters to use the AOPT tool?

Kind regards and many thanks in advance

Bump!
Can anyone tell me how they learned to use this stuff?

I've been trying to read loads of books on opengl / webgl / glsl,
but I could do with some pointers Smiley

Hi Alberto,

have you tried to call aopt with parameter "-h" to show the usage information:
Code:
aopt -h

Best,
Thomas

Hi - I am still trying to use AOPT.
I have read everything I can find in terms of documentation.

Here is an example of an argument I am trying to send to AOPT:
aopt i example.obj -x myResult.x3d

I always get the following error:
FATAL   Avalon
Malformed arguments.

I have tried using a .ply instead of a .obj
I have checked the input geometry is perfect and to spec
I have tried AOPT on windows7 32bit OS
I have tried AOPT on windows7 64bit OS
I have tried the latest versions and old versions of AOPT
I have tried running the command line as Administrator
I have tried including a direct path to the input file in quotes,
I always get the same fatal error

Has anyone on this forum got AOPT to work?
If you have can you tell us what your platform and setup is?

Thanks!!!

I know I'm just replying to myself here, but I have solved this issue for myself.
I have been using the documentation located here:
http://doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/models/aopt/index.html

I copied and pasted the example arguments into the command line.
Do not do ths! - for some strange reason the first minus sign in all
the arguments is the wrong unicode character, although it LOOKS like a minus sign.

If you copy and paste from the docs it will look fine, but AOPT will see THIS:
Command Line: aopt i myFile.foo -x myResult.x3d
When what you want is THIS
Command Line: aopt - myFile.foo -x myResult.x3d

To answer Alberto's original query these Docs at x3dom.org cover conversion to binary geometry - just don't be stupid like I was and copy and paste from them!
