Level Director X – Documentation

Terminology

Asset – This refers to an imported image/texture atlas.  You can specify the physics attributes of an asset. An example would be an image of a boulder or rock and you would set the physic attributes accordingly.

LayerA layer is the canvas where you place your objects.  Multiple layers can be added to create parallax effects or to easily group objects.

Object – In most cases an object is a display object i.e. an object that will be displayed on the level/layer.  The object will be linked to an asset and therefore will inherit its properties.  An example would be the boulder, you would place instances of the boulder asset on the layer.

Target The target device display size (guide lines are added to show the target screen size).
