Advanced Use of Pictures (Victims)

Pre-built with SimsUshare victims, containers, and labels is the ability to synchronize their visibility status in a simulation (whether they are hidden or shown). This capability is also present in pictures you can bring in, such as victims, ladders, hoselines, or any static image. This lesson shows you how to access what we call ‘sync variables’ so that you can coordinate the shown or hidden status of a picture with the status of any other picture. The lesson presents an example of making a victim ‘move’ around a house, in other words, appear at a window during some time period and then appear on the floor (collapsed) in a later time. This might be useful to more accurately portray victims as not remaining in a single place during an incident.
