Fly Sidebar

This page explains the Fly sidebar of the 3D Mapping Cloud Viewer and how to use it.

A fly-through movie is a simulated navigation on the Map 3D following a predefined 3D Movie Path. All visible 2D and 3D resources are included in the movie recordings as visible in the recorded view mode.

The Fly Sidebar allows to create and edit a 3D fly-through movie.

Add new Fly-through

Add a new Fly-through movie by clicking 'Add' and specifying a name in the pop-up window. Use a relevant name to ease the search for a specific Fly-through movie in the list.
