Dial

Parameters measured in degrees (such as Rotation or Hue) employ the dial control.

Figure. Dial control in Inspector.

Some parameters are limited to a value between 0 and 360 degrees. If you rotate such a dial more than one revolution, the numbers simply repeat. Other parameters can be set to negative values or multiple rotations.

Dials always have a value slider beside them to indicate the value set by the dial. Dial value sliders can be manipulated directly as well.

To adjust a parameter using a dial
Do one of the following:
  • Drag the dial in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction to increase or decrease the value.

  • Directly modify the value slider.
