Videos and Images

Videos and Images can be dragged and dropped into Foveate to help you create even more engaging multimedia experiences.

Multiple Videos and Images can be uploaded and placed in a scene. A different video can be triggered to playback per Moment using the Media in the Moments Details, otherwise, a video will restart playback when you press the Play button in your presentation.

Video and Image Settings

Videos and Images are automatically created as planes in your 3D Scenes upon upload. You can click on the name of an asset in the file list to expand the controls for it. Clicking on the asset in the list will automatically show the transform gizmo in your 3D scene that will allow you to move, rotate, and scale your Media Plane.

  • Autoplay — Whether the video should start automatically playing in a scene or not.

  • Mute — Mute audio of media or not.

  • Double-Sided — Make the media render on both sides of the plane or not.

  • Curve — You can apply curvature to the 2D Media Plane to make it feel more immersive and less flat.
