Volume tools are used to add volumes inside of the room boundaries. These volumes are used as projection support for the panorama images. Volumes are usually used for furniture or props.

Modifying a Volume

To modify a volume, first select it and drag the control points to the desired location.

You can also change the radius of the entire cone by dragging the circle at the base or change the radius just at the top of the cone by dragging the circle at the top.

Rotating a Volume

To rotate a volume, first select the volume, and then drag the edge to be used as the rotation handle.

Moving a Volume

To move a volume, first select the volume anywhere but control points and edges, and drag the volume to the new location. Moving the volume will automatically constrain it to the selected plane. Cylinders always move along the top or bottom plane.

Deleting a Volume

To delete a volume, select it and press the DELETE or BACKSPACE key.
