Sometimes you don’t want a scene to play. Some of those reasons may include:
I may choose not to use the scene as part of a certain story because it doesn't fit its narrative
I may choose not to display the scene for a particular audience because it doesn't relate to that audience, or I want to focus on something else
or, regardless of who watches the scene and when I don't want to play the scene if the data it relies on is partial or missing
The first two reasons are more related to storytelling. By using scene editor, I can create different stories that use different scenes. For each story, I can define a decision point that branch the scene line-ups based on audience characteristics.
In this guide, we'll focus on the third reason. I can use the Scene Validation Logic when I want to skip a scene because it doesn't meet its basic requirements.
- Open the scene editor
- Select the scene you'd like to edit
- Click on its title. The logic panel to the right will display the scene name next to the scene icon (Image 1)
- Open the Scene Validation tab
- Set up the validation logic, like any other logic rule
