What format are the Cosmos assets?

Each Chaos product imports Cosmos assets as best suits their users. In the case of 3ds Max, an imported Cosmos asset is a V-RayProxy object that uses native V-Ray materials. In SketchUp and Rhino, the Cosmos asset begins as a “black box” reference that can be merged to become a V-RayProxy for editing. In Revit, Cosmos assets import as lightweight native Revit families and can also be used to replace other objects. In Chaos Vantage, the Cosmos asset will be a reference that is always extracted from the local Cosmos repository.
