By selecting a folder or a file inside the
Where all of your content medias are
, you can see a pre-visualisation of them. To see the previz of a main folder you may have to select first one of it's child folder and the select it again.
Also, if you select an image inside the
The hierarchical view of documents in Smode
you'll have access to a file tab just next to the
Timelines specificity is to play, cut and edit video layers easily, and to animate layers and their parameters
tab in which you can see any medias in the same folder than the selected one.
To update medias or folder previz, just right click -> Update. As previz images are stored inside of the .smode folder,

update once you put new medias inside.

3D File Information
Every information here is so obvious that I won't comment them. Anyway you must know that although Smode can take
a lot of polygon, it is better not to have too many objects imported. Go check the
External referenced 3D file (.fbx, .obj or .blend)
documentation for further information on this.
