RIBExportModelSettings

Encodes geometry to Pixar RenderMan.

@example:
# Settings class used to control parameters for exporting models to Renderman RIB
exportSettings = RIBExportModelSettings()
exportSettings.setOutputPath(ce.toFSPath("/general/models/batchExportTests/"))
exportSettings.setBaseName("rib_batchexport.rib")
exportSettings.setTerrainLayers(exportSettings.TERRAIN_NONE)
ce.export(ce.selection()[0], exportSettings)
