Begin to collect objects into hierarchies and layers in this video.
- [Instructor] Once the model assets…are loaded into the rendering application,…the process of layout can begin.…Layout is simply the process…of placing objects within the 3D world.…It might involve set dressings,…such as adding plants and household objects to an interior.…Layout could also encompass a first pass…at lighting or materials.…Another aspect of layout is organizing…scene assets in different ways.…CAD data is often very complex…with many different objects,…such as parts of an automobile or building.…
It becomes very important to organize…these many parts in some logical fashion…otherwise it can be difficult and time consuming…to perform tasks, such as selection…and manipulation of objects.…Scenes can be organized in several ways.…The most familiar of these for CAD designers…is the system of display layers.…Objects are placed inside logical containers called layers,…a term inherited from 2D programs, such as Photoshop.…In the context of 3D, a layer is an abstract concept,…a method of assigning properties to objects.…
