Outline Glow can be seen on a model displayed in a 3D Preview Control, in the following ways:

  • A temporary glow around a model when the mouse pointer hovers over it.

    This is achieved by applying the Click Macro Entity to the parent node of the group of models that require the glow.

    Please note the 3D Preview Box control must have the Enable Hover property set to True for this to be seen.

  • A constant glow around a model or a glow that is turned on or off by an event, such as a control value changing or the model being clicked.

    This is achieved by applying the Glow Entity to the parent node of the group of models that require the glow.

Enable Outline Glow

Outline Glow is enabled in the Environment Settings.

This will apply common or global glow settings for any Click Macro or Glow Entity that exists on a Model node.

The global color applied here can be overridden in each of the entities.

The global Outline Glow settings that can be applied are:

  • Outline Glow Enabled

  • Glow Size

    A number from 0 to 10. Controls the thickness of the glow around the model.

  • Downsampling

    A number from 1 (low) to 4 (high). Controls the quality of the glow effect.

    We recommend setting this to 1.
