Multi-Step Animations

Animated holograms can now contain multiple steps/sequences.

If a hologram file contains a Multi-Step Animation, the command bar underneath the file will display the Play All button in addition to the Play and Reset buttons that are shown on all animated holograms. This can be toggled if you wish to either play the full animation with no stops, or if you wish to reset it from the beginning (by toggling Play All, then the Reset function on the hologram).

Note: the steps in the animation are set by the 3D modeller who created and exported the file. For further information please see the hologram file article.
