I have an Issue with the AlToRef.exe that ships with both Alias 2011 and Alias 2012. It seems that it will create empty reference files most of the time if you give it a NURBS model to process. If there is a polygon mesh in the wire-file, processing will work just fine (for the mesh data only). This behavior is the same on Win7, xp x64, xp 32 bit,.... Every Hotfix and Service Pack available so far tested...
Since creating References works fine from inside Alias in the Reference Manager, there must be a small bug in the .exe itself. Is there a workaround? For example, I've seen that AlToRef.exe is calling aruba.exe, which seems to do the translation. Can aruba be called directly with certain parameters to create these refs?
I need the .exe working correctly, since I've written a script that will process a large number of files simultaneously!
Any help appreciated!
