Stage Elements Group - 3D modeling of the real-world video setup

This feature is only available in Smode Station.
The interest of this step is to do a Stage Simulation. This can then be used in several different way in processes in which you'll need a 3D view of your stage.
For instance to use a 3D Virtual Screen or Create a stage pre-visualization through Processor.
You'll also need this step if you want to create a 3D mapping using virtual Video Projectors.

Stage Elements part is completely useless if you do only 2D led mapping. In such case you'll only need your master scene, some content maps and outputs
Inside this tab you will be able to create any kind of LED or projection surfaces. And also import a projection surface from a 3D File.
It is here you'll create the Video Projector and also the Camera for the Virtual Screen.
Every element you will use for the mapping will be accessible through this tab.


Mentioned: 3D File, 3D Virtual Screen, Camera, Content Area, Content Map, Create a stage pre-visualization, Element Tree, Processor, Video Projector, Viewport and Virtual Screen.
