getbbox - compute bounding box for RADIANCE scene
getbbox [ -w ][ -h ] [ input .. ]
Getbbox reads each scene description input and computes the minimum
axis-aligned parallelopiped that will enclose all of the objects. Each
input can be either a file name, or a command (enclosed in quotes and
preceded by a ‘!’). If no arguments are given, the standard input is
read. A hyphen (’-’) can also be used to indicate the standard input.
The -w option suppresses warnings. The -h option suppresses the header
line "xmin xmax ymin ymax zmin zmax".
To compute the bounding box for the object ‘‘thingy’’:
To preview ‘‘scene’’:
preview -v FOUR -b ‘getbbox -h scene‘ scene
Since expanding a scene can require considerable overhead, it is better
to use the bounding cube produced by oconv(1) and read by getinfo(1) if
an octree exists for the scene. However, there are certain
circumstances, such as foreign object placement, that require knowing
the bounding box rather than just the bounding cube.
Work on this program was sponsored by the LESO group at EPFL in
getinfo(1), oconv(1), xform(1)
