Transform Vr Files (TraVr)
Type: Batch application
Transforms Vr files (workspaces) from one coordinate system to another
The coordinate transformation from one coordinate system to another is based on two coordinate files. A coordinate file typically contains control points that are used to control functions such as model orientations. The two coordinate files contain common points that represent the current, or "from" coordinate system and the new, or "to" coordinate system. The coordinate transformation may be 2D or 3D. Following is an example from a "from" coordinate file and a "to" coordinate file.

Once the computations are complete between the two coordinate systems, the results are applied to one or more open Workspaces (VrOne files) in VrOne. The results of the computations are displayed when complete. An option to run a test computation without applying the results to the open Vr file(s) is available.
Parameters for Transform Vr Files
On starting Transform Vr Files, a dialog is displayed in which the parameters are defined.
The Transform Vr Files dialog
Workspaces to consider
Defines the workspaces to consider.
From control file
Defines the "from" control (coordinate) file name. This file contains points that are in the current coordinate system.
To control file
Defines the "to" control (coordinate) file name. This file contains common points that are in the new coordinate system.
The transformation of the coordinate may be performed in 2D or 3D. If 3D is used then the Z coordinates need to be in the "from" and "to" files
Report file name
The results of the transformation will be displayed in a dialog box and also written to a file specified here.
Loads an existing parameter (.tvf) file. When the Vr Transform Files application starts, the last parameter file is re-loaded.
Records the current parameters to user defined (.tvf) file.
Resets the current parameters to initial values.
Performs the transformation between the "from" and "to" files, displays the results, and writes the Report file. However the Vr files are not modified. This button is used for testing and quality control before modifying the Vr files.
Run and transform
Performs the transformation between the "from" and "to" files, displays the results, and writes the Report file. The Vr files are then modified based on the transformation after a verification dialog is accepted.
Displays this help page.
Prompts for the recording of the current parameters to a .tvf file and exits Transform Vr Files.
The "Test Run" and "Run and transform" buttons perform the transformation math between the "from" and "to" files, if possible. The results are displayed in an information dialog. Following is an example of the results dialog.
