With scene states, you can create multiple versions of the same scene in one Twinmotion file by showing different Library assets or lighting parameters in each scene state. Each scene state can be applied to an image or panorama, or to a video keyframe or part to present an animated view of the scene under different parameters.

  1. Open the Scene States tool.

  2. Click the Media icon to open the Media dock.

    The scene state is applied to the image or panorama, and the Viewport automatically shows the selected scene state.

Applying Scene States to Video Keyframes and Parts

We recommended applying scene states to either the keyframes or the parts in a video. If a scene state is applied to a part that contains keyframes with scene states, the scene state of the part will override the scene states in the keyframes.
