Making a Multi-Location Fire Simulation

Learn how to add and connect multiple views in your fire simulation.

  1. To add a new slide/location to a simulation, click on the locations menu and choose “New Location“. On the following screen, enter the new location name, then click on the Set Background button to load your photo.Adding a new location to a fire simulation
  2. Note: Below the Set Background button is a list of all the existing locations. If you want to copy all the effects from an existing location into the new location, click on the existing location. SimsUshare will place the existing location’s effects in the same spot on the new background picture. Press CREATE to make the new location.
  3. The new location opens in editing mode. The name of the new location now appears in the title of the screen (“Bravo”, in this example). Note in the picture that the effects from the initial location were copied to it––you will need to move, resize, or remove them to suit the new location.Editing new location in fire simulator
