Scene Tree

The Scene Tree is the logical visualization of all the properties in a Scene. The Scene Tree consists of Containers that hold properties. The properties can be Geometries, Images, Materials, Texts, Transparency functions, Key functions, and many more. Scenes are root items that hold other items. Created Scenes are stored in the Graphic Hub and are available through the Server Panel. For general information about Scenes and procedures on how to create, import, rename, and delete Scenes, see Working with Scene Items.
