How to use proxies?
In Corona Renderer, proxies do not improve rendering time or quality in any way – otherwise all scene objects would be converted to proxies internally, right before the rendering starts. Proxies are useful for keeping smooth viewport performance while handling large amounts of high-poly objects in the scene.
1. To save an existing object/objects as Corona Proxy:
- Go to Corona > Corona Proxy, and create the proxy object anywhere in the scene. Then, in its settings, select "Pick from scene", and pick the object, which should be turned into a proxy.
- Go to File > Export > Corona Proxy (*.cgeo). This will save the current selection as a single proxy, or as separate proxies, depending on the chosen options.
2. To load a previously saved object as Corona Proxy:
Go to Corona > Corona Proxy, and create the proxy object anywhere in the scene. Then load a previously saved .cgeo file using the "..." button next to "Proxy file".
