Hi!

I would like to add a web camera into Web Scene, so If I will click on the object I will have an option to see how the place looks in real life (I saw it in one of your online tutorials)

Hi Lukasz

I am not familiar with that training, however I think that this was done using attribute values with iframe.

As you probably know when you select objects in CityEngine Web Viewer the object's attributes are displayed in the information pane. When the attribute value contains an string recognized as an iframe, the iframe src is embedded in this pane, instead of only showing the attribute in a table.

More specifically:
* In CityEngine, add an attribute with arbitrary name to the desired webcam shape
* put an iframe string to the attributes value, e.g. <iframe src="http://URL_TO_WEBCAM_FEED"></iframe>

CityEngine Web Viewer will display this attribute with the iframe src embedded into the information pane, once the shape is selected.

is that what you are looking for?

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

That's exactly what I was looking for!!!

Is there any more interesting things to do in CE? I never heard about putting a camera inside the web scene until I saw that online training

Where did you find that out? is there any books articles?


Best!!!!
