Magic 3D Easy View
Like picture editing sofware, the 3D visualizer works with layers. All fixtures and objects are included in one or several layers. By default, all inserted objects are placed in the "Objects" layer and the fixtures in the "Fixtures" layer. However, the user can create their own layers and move objects and fixtures from layer to layers by drag & drop.
Here are the layers properties :
· Color: A color can be defined for each layer, all objects of this layer will be displayed with this color in the 2D views
· Visible or not: A layer can be visible or not, this changes the object/fixture visibility in the 2D and 3D views.
· Lock or not: A layer can be locked and therefore all included objects and fixtures cannot be moved. The objects of a locked layer are shown in green when they are selected.
· Group: This option can be very useful when several objects have to be moved together. This feature allows you to move all the layer like a single object.
For instance: Place several fixtures and the truss in the same layer and group it. Now, when a fixture is selected, the entire layer can be moved or rotate like a single object.
Note: Once a layer is grouped, adding a new object is not possible anymore. The layer must be ungrouped to add or remove an object.
