You are here: Surfaces > AppearanceExtractor


Extracts appearance style(s) from the front and/or back side of the geometries.

The output appearance style feature can either be an attributes-only feature or a feature with a raster geometry and attributes, depending on whether the extracted appearance has textures on it or not. It will be output from the Appearance port.

If a geometry does not have any appearances that were extracted from it (either because it had none to extract or the Geometry XQuery did not match any part of it), the feature will be output through the Unused port.

For more information on appearance support in FME, see Appearances.
