Modifying Presentations

Learn how to modify presentations.

Linux

Once a presentation is created, you can modify it by removing or editing the media assets, or by adding alternative versions of a media asset to the presentation. You may also want to Rename, Delete, or Duplicate presentations. You can do all this by using the options in the Media menu.

The Media Menu

The media assets inside a presentation (images, panoramas, and videos) as well as the presentation itself, each have their own Media menu.

In the Media menu of an image, panorama, or video, you can remove or edit the media assets, or add alternative versions of media assets to the presentation.

  3. Edit the media asset.

    When you return to the presentation, the modifications will be applied to the media asset.

Adding Alternative Versions of Media to Presentations

You can create alternative versions of an image, panorama, or video, and add the original media asset and all of the alternate versions in the same presentation. This can be useful when you want to show the same scene under different viewing or rendering conditions, for example by varying the lighting or weather, changing materials, or hiding scene elements. When you add alternative versions of a media asset to a presentation, your collaborators can easily view and compare them against each other.

To include an alternative version of a media asset:

  1. Create a duplicate version of an image, panorama, or video.

  2. Modify the duplicate version.

  3. Add the original version and the duplicate version to a presentation.

  4. In the presentation, in the Media menu of the media that you want to mark as an alternative version, select As alternative on/off.

    When a media is marked as an alternative, the background behind the thumbnail becomes a lighter shade of gray.

  5. Export the presentation, either locally or to Twinmotion Cloud.

    When the presentation is viewed, the original version is marked with a star in the Media Strip. Click the star on the original version to view the nested alternative versions.
