  • Use of RT

    Dear Friends,

    At a lot of places like for template names of leaves, branches etc. there are usually two versions, one WITH "_RT" and other WITHOUT "_RT"

    What does the RT in names stand for?

    More specifically what is their difference?

    RT is also used for some of the sample tree names provided with the App.

    Best Regards

    Well, RT means 'Real-time'. which means to compute instantaneously. A mesh for games is usually made with a low triangle count that would allow a game to continue functioning at real-time. So any of the files with _RT on it, is a mesh that has been optimized to compute faster. Some image files will also have '_RT' in the name because these were the files that were used for the _RT models.

    Hope this clarifies it for you.
