Moments

Moments were designed to make viewing and interacting with 3D Scenes powerful and intuitive. They are spatial points you can use to frame views, activate media, and tell an immersive story in space.
With Moments you can present your vision exactly the way you imagined. No more wondering if someone is navigating your scene correctly, with Moments you're in total control of the narrative. Every Moment consists of a Camera POV (Point of View), Target, and data.
​

Add Moment

You can either use the Add Moments button in the tool dock or in the Moments List to create a new Moment. This will then pop up the Add Moment overlay. Here you can use the Target Distance Slider to adjust the Focus Point i.e. where the user camera orbits around. Use Reticle Scale to understand when the Target is intersecting with another object if you need to.

Moments List

After you create a Moment you then see the Moments list on the top right. You can double-click any item to rename it, single-click to go to that Moment, or drag to reorder your Moments.
