No... While the OpenFlight API allows you to load and modify elements in your OpenFlight model, it has no inherent rendering capability.
Creator, however, lets you do this using the Attributes>Generate Report command. It can create JPG files containing previews of your OpenFlight files.
I need to be able to do it from inside my own app...
I have been trying to utilize some 3rd party stuff for use in QT, but have not gotten anything to work yet.
For now, I am launching a process which starts up the OSGViewer app...
Yea... the OpenFlight API is really better for editing, not rendering... Sorry about that.
Is there any way in the API to get a bitmap preview of the FLT file?
