ViewportFrame

Show Deprecated

A ViewportFrame is a type of GUI that can render 3D objects inside its bounds. This is a great way to display 3D objects/models in a 2D GUI space like a ScreenGui. At the moment, no shadow or post effects are available. Neon and Glass materials will be rendered on lowest quality. Nested GUIs aren't supported, which means GuiObjects don't work as expected under ViewportFrame.

For a step-by-step walkthrough, see the Frames.

Properties

Ambient

read parallel

This property determines the lighting hue applied to the area within the ViewportFrame. This property defaults to 200, 200, 200 (ghost grey).

CurrentCamera

not replicated
read parallel

This property is a Camera instance that is used to render children objects. Defaults to nil.

The Camera object will not replicate so the ViewportFrame.CurrentCamera won't replicate either. If you save a Camera in the server, it will not appear in the client. When you set this property, Camera.CFrame and Camera.FieldOfView will be saved and replicate with ViewportFrame internally so the client can render ViewportFrame without a Camera object. If you want to change the client's Camera, you have to create a new Camera using a LocalScript at runtime.

ImageColor3

read parallel

This property determines how a rendered image will be colorized, allowing you to change the image color without directly modifying the rendered object. The default colorization value is Color3.new(1, 1, 1) (white) at which no color modification occurs.

See also ImageTransparency which determines the transparency of the rendered image.

ImageTransparency

read parallel

This property determines the transparency of the rendered image, allowing you to change the image transparency without directly modifying the rendered object. A value of 0 (default) is completely opaque and a value of 1 is completely transparent (invisible).

See also ImageColor3 which determines how a rendered image will be colorized.

LightColor

read parallel

The color of the emitted light. This property defaults to 140, 140, 140 (silver flip/flop).

LightDirection

read parallel

A Vector3 representing the direction of the light source from the position 0, 0, 0. This property defaults to -1, -1, -1.
