Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Turning on the light, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
So, continuing on where we left off our little project with our 3D turned off light bulb here,…I'm going to go back to Element, click the Scene Setup button to again open the…Scene interface, where we have our scene here, which basically consists of…this one bulb. I am going to go back over to my Model Browser, click on…the Starter_Pack, and there's also this bulb_on model, so I'm going to click this;…that adds the bulb_on to our scene.…Now, that did not replace our bulb. If we click on the bulb here, we can see…it, and then bulb_on, we can see that there.…
So there's two different objects in our scene,…and we want to be able to control them independently, and actually we want to…animate between these two objects.…So in order to do that, we need to put these objects on different groups. I want…my regular bulb to be on Group 1, and that's active here; we can see that. But…right now, bulb_on is also on Group 1, and we don't want that.…So I'm going to click on that to disable it from Group 1, I'm going to click on…
