Detach Actor

Used to detach an actor (that is, negate the result of the Attach Actor tool). When detaching an actor that has other actors attached to it, they remain attached to it.

When working with this tool, you can select and accept the actors graphically, or you can select their names from the drop-down Actor List menu in the tool settings.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Visualization > Animate > Modify Actor > Attach Detach Actor split button
  • Toolbox: Animation Actors

Actor List Drop-down menu containing the names of existing actors in the model. See Working with actors for information on creating and manipulating actors.
Note: You can also attach/detach actors using the drag-and-drop technique, in the Animation Producer dialog.
