Unigine::ImportProcessor Class

Header:#include <UnigineImport.h>

Notice
Import System API is not available for Entertainment SDK edition.

This class is used to manage import processors. An import processor is a module that saves objects generated by an importer on the basis of metadata on the whole scene or some of its components to files in UNIGINE native format and performs auxiliary operations during the import process (data preparation, file management, etc.). You can use a set of different processors for each scene component or a single processor for all of them. There are also two specific types of processors:

  • Pre-processors - perform additional operations with scene metadata prior to generation of UNIGINE's objects.
  • Post-processors - perform additional operations with files generated in the process of import (e.g. copying files to other folders, adding files to packages, etc.).

Notice
This is a base class for all import processors. Your custom import processor class must be inherited from it.

You can override one (or all) onProcess*() methods to define the types of components to be processed by it, these overridden methods will be called by the importer when corresponding import operations are performed.

Notice
For pre- and post-processors only the onProcessScene() method is to be overridden.

ImportProcessor Class

static ImportProcessorPtr create()

Constructor. Creates an empty import processor.

void setImporter(Importer * imp)

Sets the importer for the import processor.

Arguments

Importer * getImporter()

Returns the importer for the import processor.

Return value

Importer currently used.

void setOutputPath(const char * path)

Sets the specified output path to be used to put files with imported scene elements to.

Arguments

  • const char * path - Output path to be set.

const char * getOutputPath()

Returns the current output path used to put files with imported scene elements to.

Return value

Current output path.

bool processScene(ImportScene * scene)

Performs scene processing: modifies the metadata of scene elements or files generated in the process of importing the scene.
Notice
This method is used by pre-processors and post-processors. To customize actions to be performed on scene processing, when implementing a custom pre- or post-processor, you can override the onProcessScene() method.

Arguments

Return value

true if the specified animation is successfully processed; otherwise, false.

bool processCamera(PlayerPtr & camera, ImportCamera * import_camera)

Arguments

Return value

true if the specified mesh is successfully processed; otherwise, false.

bool processNode(NodePtr & node, ImportNode * import_node)

Arguments

Return value

true if the specified node is successfully processed; otherwise, false.

bool processTexture(ImportTexture * import_texture)

Performs texture processing: saves the specified generated texture to a corresponding file in the output directory.
Notice
To customize actions to be performed on texture processing, when implementing a custom import processor, you can override the onProcessTexture() method.

Arguments

Return value

true if the specified texture is successfully imported to a file; otherwise, false.

bool onProcessScene(ImportScene * scene)

Scene processing event handler function. This function is called each time when the processScene() function is called. You can specify your custom actions to be performed: modify the metadata of scene elements (pre-process) or files generated in the process of importing the scene (post-process).
Notice
This method is used by pre-processors and post-processors.
