General Settings tab

The General Settings tab is the main tab within the object Property Editor. It contains a series of options where you can view and define the general characteristics of objects within your project hierarchy. For example, you can set specific values for the volume, and pitch of an object. You can also define specific playback behaviors for the different objects within your hierarchy.

The General Settings tab is split between properties and behaviors. The properties appear on the left side of the tab and the behaviors on the right side. The properties are further divided into two groups: absolute and relative. The absolute properties are displayed on the left and the relative or cumulative properties on the right.

For a complete description of relative and absolute properties, refer to About properties in the project hierarchy.

The General Settings tab is also contextual, which means that the properties and behavior options that are displayed in this tab will be different depending on the type of object you are currently editing.
