Background color

Background color allows you to uniquely stylize your scene by choosing a scene background color to improve your story. For example, you can choose a white background that emphasizes your buildings. When you select a background color the sky and stars in your scene are removed and only the selected color is visible for the scene background.

  1. Click the Background color palette to choose a custom color for your scene background.
  2. To remove the custom color and restore the scene atmosphere, click No Background Color in the palette.

Clip to extent

In a local scene, you can clip the basemap and layers to the current extent of your view. This is useful for increasing performance, focusing key elements of your project, and interacting with layers that are underground.

  1. Click Clip to Extent to clip your local scene to the current view.
  2. Navigate around the scene to a new camera view and click the Update To Current View button Update to Current View to update the clipped extent to reflect your current view in the scene.
