The Performer Prop tab allows you to assign props to performers on the field. This means that you can enter and maneuver props just like you would performers.
To assign a performer as a prop, add performers to the field using any of the Drawing tools. Select the performers on the field, and open your Visuals Editor to the Performer Prop tab. You’ll then be presented with various prop types to select from.
The Pit Props list include many instruments and accessories found in front ensembles, as well as a few full front ensemble layouts for use. Pit Props can be assigned to performers, but cannot change size or have an image assigned to the existing instruments.
Shape Props include a list of various 2D and 3D geometrical shapes for use. Many of these props can have an image assigned to the prop by selecting Choose a Prop Image and applying the image in the menu.
Shape Props can also change dimensions, either immediately, or over a range, depending on your preference.
Structure Props include both geometrical shapes as well as models of various show equipment such as ramps and podiums. Like Shape Props, some Structure props can have an image assigned to the prop by selecting Choose a Prop Image and applying the image in the menu.
Structure Props can also change dimensions, either immediately, or over a range, depending on your preference.
Performer & Prop Collision
There are 4 options for prop collision:
Can be walked on when enabled, a performer can pass over the top of selected prop(s), assuming the performers were set to be able to walk on props (see next option below)
Can walk on Performer Props when enabled, selected performer(s) can pass over the top of a prop (that has been set to be walked on)
Performer/Prop Performer will not collide is essentially the “turn off” option – when enabled, performers/props will not collide with each other; the performer/prop would then pass through each other
Once any type of Performer Prop has been assigned to the field, it can be selected and edited, just like you would a standard performer.
