Load external image library


(Iain Watt) #1

Hello, was looking at loading external images to be used in a scene - I.e. dressing a kids scarecrow.
Load - hat
Load - hands
Load - jacket
…etc

Would like to use the same image, (duplicates) in the same scene if possible?
Thank you
Iain

If you mean external as the file wasn’t imported into Hype but instead is using a URL, the easiest way to do this is to create a Rectangle, remove styling, and then choose Edit > Edit Element’s Inner HTML and add an <img src="http://example.com/image.png"> tag. The browser has caching to take care of making sure it doesn’t download an image multiple times.

Thank you, that makes sense now.
