If they have picts with a watermark which sometimes they do, as long as it's high def it's workable for me. I may have to fiddle with some texture but it's fine.
Do you have AC3D to convert stuff to Ipacs format? I can send you the Collada files which are supposed to convert. Right now that's the step I'm missing. I can create 3D buildings with texture, and export them (sketchup or Collada or DXF (but that one has no texture I believe).
Then AC3D is supposed to import them, convert them to ac format, and then they can be placed.
Dave knows how to do it, even though we haven't fully tried the workflow yet, but he's busy. At some point I may be able to do the whole chain, but I'm busy too and don't have all the elements yet.
The other thing is like for Ford Island is it better for me to export the whole island with stuff placed on it, or to export individual buildings and features to be placed later, I don't know.
The problem with the commercial photos is that he has 5200 x 3454 resolution available but only 1000 x 664 is freely available.
Either Dave or Rodeo will need to make the conversion. I can't do it yet. I would guess it might be better to make Ford Island all one export, maybe with the exception of the radar dome - so it can be replicated to other places. Maybe Dave will weigh in on this for his opinion.
