Scene Options: What is it and how can I use it?
What are Scene Options?
We have introduced a new way of showing off alternatives to material, color and configuration in VR. Scene Options allow you to show your space with multiple options. Scene Options are another way to enhance your design, and tell your story in the context of the VR scene, without having to flip between VR, catalogs and 2D renders.

How can I add Scene Options to my Project?
First, you will need to have multiple renders (scenes) of the same space from the same camera angle or perspective. We recommend adjusting colors, materials, textures or configurations within the scene to show off your space with many different options.
You will need to start off by creating a new VR project or by selecting the VR project you would like to add Scene Options to. For more information on how to create a VR project, click here.
Upload your scenes to your VR project. You can either drag and drop your files into the upload box or hit “Browse” to select the scenes you would like to upload.
Once processed, your scenes will show up here. On this page you can add, delete, preview, rename, rearrange and swap your scenes.
You can repeat this process anytime to add any additional scenes.
To create a Scene Group, drag and drop the scenes on to of each other. To do so, click on the Yulio plugin icon beside the scene thumbnail and drag it on top of another scene.
This will create a “Scene Option Group”.
Next, click on the Group Name to rename your Scene Option Group and the down arrow icon to see all the scenes currently in that group. You can have multiple Scene Option Groups in one VR project.
From here, you can rearrange the order of the scenes in your group and rename each scene name. The scene at the top of your list will be your “opening” scene for the Scene Option Group.
Now that you have created your Scene Option Group, it is time to view your proejct in VR. Click on the “View in 360” icon to open your project in browser mode.
While viewing your VR project in browser mode, access your Scene Options by clicking on the tab in the middle bottom of your screen.
From there, select the Scene Option that you would like to view:
That’s it! You just added Scene Options to your VR Project. Check out additional articles on how to enhance your VR project with navigational, audio, text and image hotspots, as well as floorplan navigation.
