Edit, Copy, Paste
Use these commands to copy values between parameters. Select the parameters whose values you want to copy. Choose Copy. Next, select the parameters that should receive the copied values and choose Paste.
Use these commands to select or deselect parameters.
Settings/options for the following elements can be saved to the Browser:
- Post effects
When an element in one of the above formats is created, the settings that were active when Set as Default was executed will be applied, respectively. The saved presets can be found in the Content Browser in the Presets/Defaults directory. These presets can also be deleted from this location.
Make sure you execute this command only with newly-created elements. Otherwise unwanted presets may result. For example, shaders in deactivated material channels will be taken into account.
Although, a few exceptions do exist:
- Newly created cameras will always be created using the current angle of view.
- Although the menu suggests that various light sources exist, only one really exists internally. This light source can be saved as a preset for all light sources.
- These settings apply only to new objects created by the user per interface. Python plugins or file importers do not make use of this functionality.
- When an object is created the corresponding Phong tag will be created automatically (without taking any presets into account).
