When duplicating objects in the object manager, you can either clone or create an instance of an object.
- [Instructor] The Object Manager lists…all the objects in your scene…and allows you to keep things organized.…Most of what you can do with the Object Manager…is from the Context menu of a selected object.…Remember that the object must first be selected.…Once you have familiarized yourself better with…the commands and understand the default shortcut keys,…creating your own additional shortcut keys…to frequently used commands will…greatly speed up your scene creation.…Two frequent commands are Clone and Instance.…
And to create a shortcut for them,…open the Preferences window.…Go to Shortcuts and scroll down…until you find the object category.…Select the object with your mouse cursor…in the shortcut column…and enter a keyboard combination that suits.…For clones, I'll use Control, Alt and C.…For Instances, I'll use Control, Alt and I.…OK to lock in your changes.…
Now, the current name of the object is not meaningful.…To rename an object, double-click on it…and type away.…Now, I'm going to name this pin.…Using the shortcut just created,…

Plus, he goes into the different types of emitters or lights that you can use to light your scenes, how to create and position the camera, and how to set render options.
