Object Properties Panel

Overview

  • One Object Properties Panel will be docked on the right side of the default layout when SEQUOIA is first started.
  • Additional Object Properties Panels can be created using the Main Menu > Panels > OBJECT PROPERTIES - Create New Panel.
  • The Object Properties Panel lets you access and edit the properties of a selected object.
  • If multiple objects are selected, only the properties of the last object added to the selection will be displayed.
  • If no object is selected, a message will be displayed advising the user to select one.

Manually Locking The Document And Selection

  • The Object Properties Panel is Document-Aware.
  • By default it will display the properties of the object selected in the Active Document, and the Options icon []> will have default gray background.

  • By clicking on the Options icon []> and selecting an explicit Document name, the Object Properties Panel can be locked to the specific document and will only show the properties of the selected objects in that Document.

  • You can create multiple Object Properties panels in the same UI and lock each one of them to a different document, and/or different object to access multiple objects’ properties at the same time, compare them, copy values between them and so on.

Automatic Selection Locking

  • The current selection will be locked automatically when opening an Image Viewer from the Object Properties of an Image Projection object
  • This is done to allow the creation and placement of scene Markers without losing the focus on the Image Projection properties.
