ResourceEditor is a standalone application that consists of several modules including a tool for viewing and checking exported meshes and utilities for texture generation. These modules can be switched between using tabs at the top of the ResourceEditor window.

ResourceEditor runs only in the OpenGL mode on all supported platforms.
In order to speed up ResourceEditor on NVIDIA's G80 under Windows you need to select "Single display performance mode" in NVIDIA's control panel. Having multiple monitors you need to add ResourceEditor into "Program Settings" tab of the panel and select "Single display" option for it.
