[?] how to define the path and name of the .hdr file generated by rad

Dear Greg, Thanks for you reply!

Actually, I was asking whether we can specify the directory where the .hdr
image generated by rad will be saved.

I just found out that it can be done, and the "root name" for the PICTURE
variable of rad can include the path where the image file will be placed
once it's generated.

e.g.
"PICTURE = /Volumes/ZJ_1TB/test/rad_image" will save the "rad_image_vw1.hdr"
file in the following place: "/Volumes/ZJ_1TB/test".

Anyway, thanks for the clarification!

You are correct. There is no way to directly specify the exact output file
name, which is constructed from the root name you give and the view name,
separated by an underscore ('_') and followed by the ".hdr" suffix. If you
want a different name, you either have to run the rpict command yourself or,
easier, rename the file after rad is done using "mv" or similar.
