Option focus

What does the term Option Focus mean?

The Option Focus is a feature that allows you to 'guide' the buyer or visitor to the option he or she selects in the option list. This is done via a camera animation that moves the buyer to a self set camera angle. In the process, it is also possible to switch the floor switcher to a specific floor. In this way, you make the options you offer more transparent.


Setting an 'Option-Focus'

Setting the camera positions belonging to the Option-Focus can be set within the Configurable-Editor of a model where it is possible to set specific camera positions for Categories, Headers and (separate) Options.

Here it is important to note that a 'priority' exists when an option-focus is applied to a category and underlying header or option.

The priority is as follows:

1. Option
2. Header
3. Category

If no Option Focus is set on or within a category, the camera will also not jump for the end user. Then the current camera position will remain in use.


A concrete example of this is if, for example, you apply an Option Focus to the category 'Build-out' under which a header called 'Rear Facade' with finally 3 options:

- Extension 1200mm
- Extension 2400mm
- Frame in side wall extension 2400mm

So when you apply an Option Focus to the Extensions category you will probably choose a camera viewpoint that mainly has the rear facade in view. But for the option 'Frame in side wall extension 2400mm' you can apply an Option-Focus where the point of view of your camera focuses specifically on the side wall of the house.
