The TouchSensor helper lets you set up an object so that selecting it in a VRML97 browser starts a set of objects animating.


To set up an object as a TouchSensor trigger:

  1. Add a Touch Sensor object by clicking the Touch Sensor button and then click-dragging in the Top viewport to create its icon.
  2. Select the geometry to control.

    When the user clicks the trigger geometry, the geometry, camera or light animates, or the sound plays.


The Touch Sensor rollout contains the following options:

Pick Trigger Object

Specifies the geometry that will be the trigger for this TouchSensor. Click this button, then select the geometry.


Activates the Touch Sensor. When this box is turned off, the sensor has no effect, even if objects have been selected.

Pick Action Objects

Specifies the objects in the scene to control with this helper.

Determines the size of the Touch Sensor helper in the scene.
