You can control the rendering used in the virtual world display pane of the 3D World Editor. Right-click in the virtual world display pane and set rendering options, such as antialiasing, lighting, and transparency.
Use the virtual world display pane to visualize the virtual world as you create it.
To control navigation, right-click anywhere in the pane and select the appropriate navigation options. You can control aspects such as methods (for example, fly or walk) and speed.
To save these navigation settings in a virtual world file, you must define the navigation properties in a NavigationInfo node.
To navigate in the virtual world, left-click in the pane. The cursor changes to a white cross hair. Moving the cursor changes the orientation of the virtual world.
To help you visualize changes in the orientation (coordinate axes) of nodes in a virtual world, the 3D World Editor virtual world display pane includes a triad of red, green, and blue arrows. These arrows are always parallel with global x, y, and z coordinate axes. As you navigate in a virtual world, the triad display changes to reflect changes in orientation.
To hide the triad for a virtual world, or to change the location of the triad in the virtual world display pane, right-click in the pane and select the appropriate option from the View > Triad menu.
To change the default location or visibility of the triad:
From the MATLAB® Toolstrip, in the Home tab, in the Environment section, select Preferences.
In the Preferences dialog box left pane, select Simulink 3D Animation > 3D World Editor > Triad.
You can view the virtual world in one pane, two horizontal panes, two vertical panes, or four panes.
For example, if you select View Pane > Grid View, the 3D World Editor displays four view panes:
You can also use toolbar buttons to set view panes:
When the grid view panes are open, if you change the view pane option, the 3D World Editor displays the following view panes from the grid view.
|New View Pane Option||Grid View Panes Displayed|
Left two panes
Top two panes
Top left pane
To change the relative size of a panes, select one of the gray borders for a view pane and drag the cursor.
To delete a pane when there are multiple panes, click the dot in the border between view panes.
You can control the navigation of each pane independently. For example, you can set viewpoints, manipulate the triad, and specify rendering techniques independently for each pane. The navigation panel in the active pane is blue. For example:
