Field Layers

Field layers are field elements that are not represented in the Object Manager (which means that they have no position or rotation). These elements use other objects’ (e.g., splines) or tags’ (e.g., Vertex Map tag) spatial information - or require none (e.g., the Time layer).

Tip: The Field layers that have ,object’ or ,tag’ in their name can be linked directly when a corresponding object or tag is selected (the cursor will switch to a question mark icon).
