Object Name

Root Object

Frames per Second

When the animation is played or scrolled, the frame rate Frames per Second will be displayed. The more complex a scene is, the lower the frame rate will be (see also Optimizing the display speed in the Viewport).

OpenGL Statistics

Enabling this option will display several OpenGL statistics in the HUD (number of triangles, points, etc. Included are global grids, highlighted elements, lights, cameras, etc. You will not be supplied with information about the scene geometry itself but rather for the elements that have to be displayed by OpenGL). These statistics are for informational purposes only and have no other function.

Active Tool

Displays a small menu from which the last eight tools used can be selected.

Sculpt Statistics

During sculpting, relevant statistics (e.g., polygon count) will be displayed in the HUD at the top right of the Viewport. Use this option to enable or disable this display.

Grid Spacing

This command can be used to display the Grid Spacing in the Viewport as a HUD element.

RELEASE 17

Instead of switching to the Take Manager, this HUD element can be used to switch between existing Takes that can be selected from the list.

Render Settings

Like the Current Take HUD element described above, the render preferences can also be displayed and selected here (instead of doing so in the Render Settings).

 Controls

These settings allow you to adjust the look and feel of the HUD (its colors and transparency).

Text

Selected

Use this setting to define the color of text for active HUD elements.

Always Active

If active, you will not be able to manipulate an object lying beneath a HUD element. Mouse actions will only affect the HUD element.

We recommend you deactivate this setting since both HUD elements and objects lying beneath the HUD can be edited. The following applies:
