Manipulating a YahahaObject

Scene editor allows you to create your space by adding and manipulating YahahaObjects. All editable objects in YAHAHA Studio can be called YahahaObjects and they can be found in Explorer. You can manipulate YahahaObjects with the following tools.

Tools Description

Finding YahahaObjects

You can pin down a certain YahahaObject using key words in the search box or browse Explorer directly.
