This tutorial shows you how to create hotspots (snoop animations) in Visionaire Studio. Hotspots usually consist of images, animations or text that are used to show points of interest in each scene.


1. First things first: you should create some images/animations via your graphic/3D editing program of choice.

2. Next thing you want to do is create a button inside of one of your interfaces & set the button type to action area.

3. Create your hotspot animations inside of this button & adjust properties settings for each animation to suit.
