The "Object" panel and the Control Panel in the Director allow you to access and edit actors, components and their properties inside the Pixotope Engine/Editor, in both LIVE and Edit mode.
To easily access the specific properties you want to control, you can explicitly expose properties to the Director.
Exposing properties in the Editor
Select the object whose properties you want to be exposed to the Director
Click the star icon to the left of almost any property
The star will turn yellow
Some properties have a grey star, which means that they are already exposed
In the "Object" panel, the exposed properties will be available in the List of Properties
