Learn how to change some properties of the background, such as the color. Also look into the ability to create gradient effects within the background.
- [Narrator] Just as we did with our geometry actors, I can also change properties of my collaborative actors. My background, for example, is what I call a collaborative actor. So all I'll have to do is click or select on that collaborative actor. In this case, just clicking anywhere in the background. And again, navigate over to my properties panel. Again I have a whole number of properties that I can change to fit my needs.
Let's say I just want to change the color of my background. So I actually have two color options here. I have background color, and I also have foot color. So what this does is, it gives me the ability to generate a gradient. So if I just change my background color to say a purple. Notice you can see the gradient effect here, from purple at the top, to white at the bottom.
If for example, I just want the background to fully be purple, I would just need to change the foot color here as well to also be the same purple. And I can mix and match these colors as required. Maybe in this case I do want a gradient effect between purple and white, so here I have my nice purple gradient background. And maybe once I'm happy with all these options, I can again create a new view.
So I'll jump to my views tab, hit the Create a View, and again maybe rename this. So right click to Rename, and call this purple background.
