Export Scenes

Export scene geometry and semantic segmentation data, export to OpenDRIVE® or to simulators such as CARLA

RoadRunner can export a scene to a variety of file formats. The exporting options are available through the File > Export option in the menu bar. The export options are divided into these main groups:

  • 3D geometry file formats such as Filmbox (.fbx)

  • Semantic map file formats, such as OpenDRIVE files, that include features such as lane topology.

  • Semantic segmentation data, which you can use to train perception algorithms.

  • Combinations of file formats for use with simulators such as CARLA or game engines such as Unity® or Unreal®. To export to CARLA, Unity, or Unreal, you need to install a RoadRunner plugin. For more details, see Downloading Plugins.

You can also specify custom export configurations to export different combinations of file formats that RoadRunner supports.
