About ONX Export
With OnyxFLOWER 2, we have introduced ONX export which is accessed from File
menu. ONX file is a proprietary Onyx Computing 3D file format we have developed to
suit the needs of our modelers. At this time, the only 3D rendering and animation
package that reads ONX files is 3d Studio Max via Onyx2Max plugin. Thus for you to
take advantages of ONX import into Max, you need to have Onyx2Max plugin. The
advantages of importing our vegetation to Max as ONX files are immense. Besides
carrying 3D geometry and UV mapping coordinates, ONX file stores color-per-vertex
data and material data including the textures. And, it goes without saying that ONX file is
not limited to 64k vertices and/or faces per sub-material as is the case with 3DS file
whose 64k limit will result in any number of split sub-materials for large objects which will
make these objects cumbersome and time consuming to manipulate. The current
version of OnyxFLOWER does not export textures and material attributes because the
software does not allow you to set these parameters. However, ONX export in
OnyxFLOWER allows you to take the full advantage of its color-per-vertex feature
because ONX files will carry color-per-vertex data into Max. We plan to implement full
material ONX support in the future releases of OnyxFLOWER.
Enjoy the program. Thank you for your support.
