Amazon Sumerian Scene Settings

In addition to the options available in the dashboard, the Sumerian editor contains many options for configuring a scene. In the inspector panel, you can configure credentials for the AWS SDK for JavaScript, adjust the canvas size and grid, and configure global settings like fog, background image, and post-processing effects.

To configure a scene

  1. Open a scene in the Sumerian editor.

  2. Choose the root node in the Entities panel.

  3. Modify scene settings in the inspector panel.

    • Details – Update the scene's name and description.

    • Tags – Add metadata tags to the scene.

    • Custom attributes – Add metadata key-value pairs to the scene.

You can save a copy of your scene as a template to use as a starting point for creating other scenes. If your scene is saved to a project, the template is saved to the same project. Otherwise, you must choose a project to hold the template.

To create a template

  1. Open a scene in the Sumerian editor.

  2. Choose the root node in the Entities panel.

  3. Expand the scene section in the inspector panel.

  4. Choose Save scene as template.

  5. If the scene is a draft, choose a project for the template.

You can copy or move templates between scenes in the dashboard. You can update a template by creating a template again from the same source scene or from a scene created from the template. When you save a template, you can choose to create a new template or update the existing template.

Collapse the scene settings section by choosing the name of your scene.
