Export Instances from Maya to egg file


I tried to export instances from maya to egg format. But in the egg format they appear as simple copies. Instances are possible in egg format and i need them for performance issues. Is there a trick to do this?

There’s no performance advantage to using instances.

This is a very common misconception about instancing–that it’s somehow faster to use instances instead of copies. It’s not true. Even if you use instancing, the graphics card still has to draw the object repeatedly. It’s the same effort to draw one object 500 times as it is to draw 500 objects one time.

So, go ahead and keep using copies.
