Free Electron Documented Operators
Common Operator Info
FE ExportOp


Save surface data to a file.


The single input surface is saved to a file.


The Format selects the file type for the Save File. If set to Auto, an export handler is selected based on the file suffix.

For Maya, the Frame should be bound to an expression that dynamically provides the current frame. Every instance of the substring "$F" in a file name is replaced with this value. Binding the current frame to this attribute also provokes the operator to reload whenever time changes.

The general purpose Options string is passed along as a hint to the handler that saves the file. The handler can do whatever it pleases with that information.


The currently supported formats are Geo and RecordGroup.
