Classes
  ClassDescription
Public classAltitudeDisplayCondition
Defines an inclusive altitude interval, in meters, that determines when an object is rendered based on the camera's altitude relative to a CentralBody.
Public classBalloon
Each 3D scene has a balloon view which can display HTML content directly. The balloon is associated with a Cartographic or screen space coordinate, and an indicator attached to the the balloon will stay fixed to that coordinate. The balloon content will resize and position itself such that it is clear what the indicator is pointing to. The balloon is useful for displaying rich content that is associated with a particular Cartographic or screen space coordinate.
Public classBalloonNavigatingEventArgs
The EventArgs passed to the Balloon Navigating event.
Public classBatchPrimitiveIndex
Represents an individual item index that is associated with a batch primitive. Provides the Index of the individual item and the Primitive that contains that index. When the PerItemPickingEnabled property is set to for a batch primitive, the PickResults returned from Scene.Pick will contain BatchPrimitiveIndex types referencing particular indices within that batch.
Public classBingMapsForEnterpriseImageGlobeOverlay
A CustomImageGlobeOverlay that uses data from a Bing Maps For Enterprise server.
Public classCamera
Implemented by the scene camera. Contains operations to manipulate the camera position, view direction and orientation in the scene.
Public classCentralBodyGraphics
The graphical properties associated with a particular CentralBody. Changing the CentralBodyGraphics will affect how the associated CentralBody is rendered in a Scene. For instance, to show or hide the CentralBody, use the Show property. CentralBodyGraphics also contains the Terrain and Imagery for the associated CentralBody.
Public classCompositeDisplayCondition
A composite of display conditions combined using a BinaryLogicOperation. For example, several TimeIntervalDisplayCondition objects can be added to a composite. The composite can then be assigned to an object so the object is only rendered when the current animation time is within one of the time intervals.
Public classCompositePrimitive

A primitive that is composed of multiple other primitives. Since composites can contain other composites, they are commonly used to build hierarchies of primitives to efficiently evaluate display conditions.

Primitives in a composite must have the same ReferenceFrame.

Public classConstantDisplayCondition
A display condition that evaluates to a user-defined value. This is commonly used to hide primitives by assigning to a primitive a display condition that always returns false.
Public classCouldNotCreateVideoCardResourceException
The exception that is thrown when a video card resource cannot be created.
Public classDisplayCondition
When assigned to objects, such as primitives or globe overlays, display conditions are evaluated to determine if the object should be rendered.
Public classDistanceDisplayCondition
Defines an inclusive distance interval, in meters, that determines when an object, such as a primitive, is rendered based on the distance, in meters, from the camera to the object.
Public classDistanceToGlobeOverlayDisplayCondition
Defines an inclusive distance interval, in meters, that determines when an object, such as a primitive, is rendered based on the distance, in meters, from the camera to the GlobeOverlay. This is different from DistanceDisplayCondition because it is based on the camera's distance to a specified GlobeOverlay, rather than the camera's distance to the object that uses this display condition.
Public classDistanceToPositionDisplayCondition
Defines an inclusive distance interval, in meters, that determines when an object, such as a primitive, is rendered based on the distance, in meters, from the camera to a position defined in the given ReferenceFrame.
Public classDistanceToPrimitiveDisplayCondition
Defines an inclusive distance interval, in meters, that determines when an object, such as a screen overlay, is rendered based on the distance, in meters, from the camera to the Primitive. This is different from DistanceDisplayCondition because it is based on the camera's distance to a specified Primitive, rather than the camera's distance to the object that uses this display condition.
Public classDurationPathPrimitiveUpdatePolicy

Public classGlobeImageOverlay
A GlobeOverlay that shows an image.
Public classGlobeImageOverlayAddCompleteEventArgs

The ordered composite is compatible with the following primitives:

It is not intended for use with: ModelPrimitive, SolidPrimitive, or CompositePrimitive.

Public classPixelSizeDisplayCondition
Defines an inclusive interval, in pixels, that determines when an object, such as a primitive, is rendered based on the number of pixels the object's bounding sphere (or in the case of screen overlays, bounding rectangle) covers on the screen. This is commonly used to implement level of detail algorithms that take into account the field of view.
Public classPointBatchPrimitive

Public classPrimitive
Primitives represent objects rendered in the 3D scene.
Public classPrimitiveFactory
Factory methods for creating PolylinePrimitives and TriangleMesh objects.
Public classPrimitiveManager
The primitive manager contains spatial data structures used to efficiently render primitives. Once a primitive is constructed, it must be added to the primitive manager before it will be rendered.

If the last frame rendered one second ago in wall clock time, the current frame will render at a time equal to the previous frame's time plus one second. A TimeMultiplier can be adjusted to make the simulation time progress faster or slower than real time.
Public classRenderingEventArgs
The EventArgs passed to the rendering event.
Public classRhumbLineInterpolator
The rhumb line interpolator computes interpolated positions along a rhumb line. Rhumb lines are lines of constant bearing. They appear as straight lines on a Mercator 2D map projection and are well suited to navigation.
Public classScene
A Scene provides properties and functionality that are reflected in the rendering of the Insight3D control that it is associated with. An Insight3D control's Scene is available from the Insight3D.Scene property. Any changes that are made to a Scene will only affect the rendering of the particular Insight3D control it is associated with. The static SceneManager class provides global properties and functionality that apply to all Scenes and thus affect the rendering of every Insight3D control. A Scene has a Camera, and various properties for changing the visual state of the scene and its CentralBodies, including changes to Lighting. To render a particular Scene, use the Render method. To render all Scenes, use use the SceneManager.Render method.
Public classSceneDisplayCondition
A display condition used to control what scene or scenes an object, such as a primitive, is rendered in. This is used to show an object in some scenes and hide it in others.
Public classSceneManager
The static SceneManager class provides global properties and functionality that apply to all Scenes and thus affect the rendering of every Insight3D control. It also provides a Textures property for creating new textures, and controls the Time of all Scenes within an application. The Animation property and SetTime(JulianDate) method can be used to control Time. The Primitives and ScreenOverlays properties allow you to add Primitives and ScreenOverlays to all Scenes. To render these objects in specific scenes, see the SceneDisplayCondition class. To render all Scenes within an application, call the Render method.
Public classScreenOverlay
A visible element drawn in screen space. Overlays are useful for floating logos, heads up displays, and integrating user interfaces into the 3D window.

Public classSolidPrimitive
Renders filled solid objects and their outlines. Example solids include boxes and ellipsoids. Various effects are supported, such as displaying the solid's silhouette, and hiding the outline of the backside of the solid. In cases where you just want to visualize a solid's fill or outline, a TriangleMeshPrimitive or PolylinePrimitive can be used for reduced overhead.
Public classStereoscopic
