Pool Depth

The pool depth stage, which is used to set the depth of the pool, is split into two sections; the top half shows the direction of the depth relative to the pool, while the bottom half represents the profile of the depth.

 

Pool Studio Pool Depth View

Depth Direction: The direction of the depth is displayed by a dashed line showing an arrow at the end to indicate the direction and the depth points that are on the depth profile. To change the direction of the depth, move the cursor to the dashed line, the cursor will change to rotate icon, click and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse in a clockwise or counter-clockwise path to rotate it.

Depth Profile: The depth profile is basically a line, stretching from one side to the other, that reflects how deep the pool is at any given point. You can move, add, or remove additional points on the profile which will be reflected in 3D. Between all depth points, a distance is displayed which reflects the distance between depth points relative to the size of the pool, based on the depth direction.
