Learn how to create and edit a scene from a 3D Model to allow you to transition between scenes of your 3D model within your VRIFY Decks.

Learn how to create a Scene in order to leverage critical aspects of your 3D Model(s), such as drill results, infrastructure, and cross-sections. Scenes can be created to capture your preferred combinations of visible layers, viewing angle, and zooming in/out.

Scenes allow for a much smoother presentation experience when all you have to do is press ‘next slide’ to show a different view (scene).

Before getting started

If you do not yet have a 3D Slide in your deck, follow the steps in our Create 3D Slides in Editor 2.0 article to learn how to add a 3D slide. From there, follow the steps below to edit or build off of existing Scenes.

Step-by-step Instructions

Follow the steps below to first Access the Scene Editor. From there, you can Create or Edit a New Scene.

Accessing the Scene Editor

  1. Log in to

  2. Click Editor from the top menu.

  3. Click on the deck that contains the 3D model you want to add a scene to.

  4. Click on the slide that contains the 3D model, then on the top right of the screen click Edit Scene:

  5. A sidebar will appear that shows all the layers in the 3D Model:

  6. From here, you can create a new scene or edit the existing scene by following the steps below.

Edit or Create a Scene

Editing or creating a new scene follow similar steps, with the distinction between the two being whether you Save to update an existing scene, or Save As to create a new scene.

  1. Edit the layers you want to Show/Hide by clicking the corresponding eye icons. The scene preview will reflect the selected or deselected layers.

    1. The grey eye icon with a slash through it indicates the layer will be hidden.

    2. The white eye icon with no slash through it indicates the layer will be shown.

  2. After accessing the Scene Editor, set your scene by clicking and dragging the 3D model in the preview area to determine the viewing angle of the scene.

  3. Zoom in or out as desired.

    1. If your computer has a track-pad, to zoom you can:

      1. pinch two fingers together to zoom in.

      2. slide two fingers away from each other to zoom out.

  4. Click Save As to save as a new scene, or click Save to update the existing scene.

Change the order of Scenes

When you have multiple Scenes, you may need to change the order they are displayed in order to have the most impact within your presentation.

  1. Log in to

  2. Click Editor from the top menu.

  3. Click on the deck that contains the Scenes you want to re-order.

  4. From the left side panel, click and drag the selected thumbnail up or down the list of slides and drop it in its desired location.

  5. Preview your changes by sequentially clicking through the slides you change the order of from the left slide navigation panel and make scene edits as needed:

For more details on changing the order of slides, check out the Change the order of slides in Editor 2.0 article.

Notes/Best Practices

  • Note that any edits made to 3D scenes will affect all decks that use it. If you do not want your edits to affect all decks that use it, click Save as new scene in the warning that displays when you are saving your scene edits.

  • To help identify the layers available to show, you can hover over the 3D layers in your layer list and you will see a transparent blue representation of that layer in the preview area.

  • To hide a 3D layer directly through the scene preview, right click on any 3D object you see and you’ll be able to see a context menu where you can click Hide.

  • To make multiple 3D layers visible/hidden at one time, you can select multiple 3D layers in your layers list by holding on Shift or Ctrl/Command on your keyboard, then right click to hide/show multiple layers at once. You can also click on any eye icon, and click and drag downwards to hide/show layers quickly in a sequence.

  • Creating a new scene based off an existing scene ensures a consistent and smooth transition between Scenes.

  • When naming scenes, a prefix is recommended to keep scenes organized

    • e.g. BMO 2020 [description of camera view].
