For use within a script running from a command prompt, the text "cmdop" needs to be added at the beginning of the line. This program takes as input an image file that represents a vertically oriented image plane along with the starting and ending locations and z-range. It then creates a Fledermaus formatted SD file representing a vertical slice that can be used in a Fledermaus 3D scene.
In addition to the data files, a polyline shapefile was also added to the scene which was to represent the approximate flight path for the animation. A vertical exaggeration of 18 was applied to the scene. This exaggeration also applied to the vertical images. The initial vertical extent of each image was 10 meters, but with this additional exaggeration applied, the images remained proportional based on a 200 m width for each image.
