Drop Actor

Used to convert (drop) an actor back into its components. When an actor is dropped, all attached actors are dropped as well. You can, however, drop an actor that is attached to another actor without affecting the parent.

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

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Visualization > Animate > Modify Actor
  • 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.
