Live Mode

Live mode is an interactive mode in which you have access both to the navigation modes that allow you to explore your product and its animations and configurations. Animations and configurations can be activated by using triggers, that is, a keystroke or click on a predefined surface.

To make an animation available in Live mode, assign it a trigger in the Live mode editor, then switch to Live mode.

When Live mode is active, the menus and buttons in the interface are no longer available.

  • To leave the Live mode, press the Esc key.

  • Navigate within your scene using the navigation shortcuts.

  • Play animations by using the triggers you have defined.

A trigger can be used multiple times while the animation is playing. The playback behavior will depend on the trigger's play mode.

Triggers can also be created to cycle through configuration values when a trigger surface is clicked. To create configuration triggers, use the Tag Manager in Shaper.

Live mode can be viewed in full screen. To do so, switch the active viewport to full screen (keyboard shortcut: Y) before switching to Live mode from the editor.
