figure 1 - screenshot of some of some of the VcObject types
The range of types of VcObjects evolved to be capable of describing the movement of the virtual camera within the model to fine detail. It includes object types that contain or reference other objects such as VcFindPlace, which moves the camera over a specified period of time to a given, or referenced VcPlace. This referencing or containment is a second method of interconnection within the plex. The VcObjects are designed to be as interconnectable as possible. (e.g. VcTimelines can contain any VcObject including other VcTimelines).
