The Numeric Parameter Settings Dialog

When you double-click the name of a parameter that has a numeric value associated with it, the Parameter Settings dialog shown below opens.

This dialog allows you to set the following options:

  • Name: Displays the name for the parameter. To change the name, select the text with your cursor and type a new name in the field.
  • Hidden: Determines whether or not the object is visible in the scene. Click to toggle the setting from No (which makes the object visible) to Yes (which hides the object).
  • Locked: Determines whether or not you are able to make changes to the parameter. Click to toggle the setting from No (which allows changes) to Yes (which prevents changes from occurring).
  • Value: Displays the current setting for the parameter. To change the setting, highlight the current setting and enter a new one.
  • Respect Limits: Determines whether or not the current parameter will remain within the minimum and maximum limits that are set for it. Click the setting to change from Yes (which keeps the parameter within the limits) or No (which allows you to set the parameter beyond its limits).
  • Min Limit: Sets the minimum allowable value for the parameter dial. When the Respect Limits setting (above) is set to Yes, DAZ Studio does not allow the minimum value to extend beyond this limit.
  • Max Limit: Sets the maximum allowable value for the parameter dial. When the Respect Limits setting (above) is set to Yes, DAZ Studio does not allow the maximum value to extend beyond this limit.
  • Display As: Click this field to toggle display units between Value (for a numeric value) or Percent (for a percentage value).
  • Sensitivity: The Sensitivity field functions in one of two ways:
    • On a slider with limits, the Sensitivity value is the increment used each time you click a Nudge arrow.
    • On a slider without limits, the Sensitivity value sets both the Nudge arrow increments and the rate of change when you click and drag the slider.
  • Controllers: Informs you whether or not there are external controllers that are linked to the parameter.

After you make your changes, click the Accept button to save them and close the dialog. Click the Cancel button to discard the changes and close the dialog. The Parameter Settings dialog will vary in appearance depending on the type of parameter you selected:
