Compared to models, a scene can contain exactly the same type of elements, but additionally also includes following elements, specific to scenes:
The main script
Pages and views
A scene or scene image content can be seen through a viewable object associated with a view, itself contained in a page. When creating a new scene ([Menu bar --> File --> New Scene]), the default scene will contain following elements:
Several camera objects: cameras allow to see the scene if they are associated with a view.
Several light objects: without a light the scene would be hardly visible. The light is used to illuminate the scene.
Several views: a view is associated with a camera and displays what the camera sees. Views are contained in pages.
Several pages: a page contains one or several views.
The environment: the environment is composed by properties as ambient light, fog, background color, etc.
The floor: the floor is made-up by objects grouped in a model.
The default main script: the default main script should allow running minimal simulations, without the need of child scripts. A child script copied into the scene at a later stage will then also be automatically executed (called by the main script) if it is associated with a scene object.
Scenes can be opened (loaded) with [Menu bar --> File --> Open Scene...] and saved with [Menu bar --> File --> Save Scene] or [Menu Bar --> File --> Save Scene as]. Scene files ("*.ttt"-files) also support drag and drop operations between the explorer window and the application window. Scene files can also be double-clicked, in which case they will launch the CoppeliaSim application and be opened.
