Dynamic Resource Group

The runs of the resource group that are loaded in a publication will be limited to those where the coordinates of the center of the reference view are located in the bounding box

  • The Min-Z Fallback and Max-Z Fallback set the vertical range wherein the runs will be loaded.
  • The distance indicates the horizontal radius wherein the runs will be loaded. The envelopes (bounding box) of the runs are used to check if they overlap with this search area.
  • The time indicates how long the runs stay loaded. If you switch from point A to B and the time is set to 10 seconds. If you go back to A within 10 seconds, the run will still be loaded. If you go to A in more than 10 seconds, the run will have to be reloaded.
