Decoration Wizard - Use the
decoration wizard to create your own unique decoration or to consolidate
many objects into one for better performance. Usage example #1:
You add lights to a project in the shape of a rope light sculpture. It
can be tedious and time consuming to design these types of decorations.
Using the decoration wizard you can design it once, and save it to your
library for quick reuse. Usage example #2: You add a string
of 100 mini lights to the roof line of your house. The program renders
each of the 100 lights as separate objects which can take a lot of
memory. Using the decoration wizard, you can combine the 100 objects
into a single object or decorative image. This saves memory and allows
for quick designing.
