ARENA Screenshare

You can share your screen in the ARENA following the tips below.

Screenshare on Primitive Objects

There are a few hints to help you establish objects to screenshare on.

  • If you choose the name/ID of an already existing object in a scene, it will set the texture of that existing object to be your screen.
  • If you choose an object that does not exist in a scene, it will spawn a new screen sharing plane with your chosen object_id. This object is not sent through the MQTT bus but is still created for all clients.
  • Once you have selected your object name, it will open a new tab that allows you to choose which screen you want to share, and ARENA will automatically place that screen onto the object with an object_id you specified.
  • You can do whatever you want the object you’re screen sharing on as if it were a normal arena object (change size, shape, attach children, etc). This also applies to the object screenshare; it’s just a standard ARENA object with object_id: screenshare!
  • When an object is dynamically created with the screen share button, it won’t go away after you stop screen sharing. It will only go away if you refresh the page.
