Project View

The Project View is a tree view representation comprised of all the various elements that makes up your project layout both uploaded data and online content e.g. Assets, Connections, Layers, 3D Surfaces, Wells, Map Servers and also access to the various global Project Settings.

Screenshot

For general information on how to use and navigate Project View, please read the Project View Functionality section.

Settings

The Settings section gives quick access to the various configuration settings for Connections, Dynamic Scale, Viewport, UI, and World Settings.

Screenshot

Connections

As shown in the illustration above, this setting applies to all connection types e.g. pipelines, umbilicals etc.

Show Kp Marker when connection selected - Check this setting to display the Kp point value next to the mouse cursor when moving along a selected connection:

Screenshot

Outline disconnected connection in red - Check this option if you want connection(s) in the Viewport to be displayed with red outline(s) if not fully connected for visual awareness.

Screenshot

Note! You will always see connections that are not fully connected denoted with red colors in the Project View.

Screenshot

Show name at endpoints - Check this option if you want the name of the connection(s) displayed at each endpoint of a connection in addition to the the standard middle placement.

Screenshot

Dynamic Scale

The Dynamic Scaling is a function that improves rendition for field layouts to ensure better visibility for all assets, connections etc. when zooming out. This is especially useful for field layouts that spans great distances. When this function is enabled it will apply scaling that follows the zoom out function to retain visibility.

Screenshot

As an example, the screenshot below shows the field layout with Dynamic Scaling enabled.

Screenshot

The dynamic scaling feature thus ensures much better visibility overall for assets and connections when applied. You can apply this by Asset type or by Category.

Enable Dynamic Scale - Check this option to enable the dynamic scale rendering.

Per Type - Enabling the dynamic scaling per type e.g. Structure, Vessel, Submerged, or Onshore where you can apply the dynamic scale factor.

Per Category - Enabling the dynamic scaling by Category will allow you to select the category of asset to scale e.g. XMT, Template etc.

Use the horizontal slider to adjust the dynamic scale factor or enter the desired value in the range 0,01 to 5. Press the Reset button to revert to the default value.

Reset All - Press this button to return all values to default.

Viewport Settings

This allows you to define the Viewport background and grid colors. You can also enable the scale-bar and compass direction here.

Screenshot

Rotate Around Selection - Enabled by default. If an object is selected the camera will rotate with the selection as the center. If disabled it will rotate around where you click in the Viewport.

Background - This is the default viewport background color. Click on the color picker to display the dialog where you can select the desired background color for your current sub-project. You can revert to default any time by clicking the Reset button

Screenshot

Grid - Click on the color picker to display the dialog where you can select the desired grid line color for your current sub-project. You can revert to default any time by clicking the Reset button.

Hide Grid - Check this option to turn off the grid display.

Show scale bar - Check this option to show the scale bar helper in the Viewport in 2D mode to better gauge distances.

Screenshot

Show compass - Check this option to show the compass rose directional helper in the Viewport in 3D mode to indicate spatial view orientation.

Screenshot

UI

This allows you to configure the various UI elements such as the Project View side panel.

Screenshot

Zoom Speed - Allows you to change the zoom speed sensitivity if you are using trackpads or similar touch input devices.

World Settings

These settings are rendering options you can adjust water, seabed, fog, sun/shadow effects and also texturing.

Screenshot

Water Opacity - The Opacity slider allows you to define the water transparency value from 0,1 to 1. Where a value of 0.1 is fully transparent and a value of 1 is completely non-transparent. Note! This applies to 3D view only.

Water Color - The water color can be adjusted by clicking on the color box and then selecting the colours and contrast needed for the visualisation

Reflectivity - This used to increase or decrease the amount of light reflected from the water's surface, where 0 is not reflective and 1 is maximum reflectivity. When a sky texture is selected it also reflects the sky texture onto the water and controls how reflective the water surface is.

Distortion - The amount of distortion on the sea surface and is a displacement amplitude factor determining how much distortion the reflections of objects in the water gets

Reflect Assets - this is a tick box which allows the assets to reflect off the water surface in the application.

Ambient Light - how bright the ambient background light is on a sliding scale from 0 to 2.

ENVMap Intensity - ENVMap intensity stands for environment map intensity, and is how much the sky reflects off of very smooth metallic staged assets.

Directional Light - This is used to adjust the light intensity from the Sun, this is controlled on a sliding scale from 0 to 4, with 4 being the most intense.

Directional Color - The directional light color can be adjusted by clicking on the color box and then selecting the colours and contrast needed.

Fog - This is a tick box used to toggle fog on and off which when selected shows additional options.

Fog Color - When the Fog tick box is selected the fog colour option appears, this allows the fog color to be adjusted by clicking on the color box and then selecting the colours and contrast needed for the fog visualisation.

Use Linear Fog - This is a tick box used to toggle linear fog on and off, when this is selected the Fog start and fog end sliding bars appear. The linear fog start and end are the distances from the camera where the fog begins and end, in other words where it goes from completely no fog, to 100% fog.

Fog Start - This defines the distance that the fog starts from 0 to 10000

Fog End - This defines the distance that the fog ends from 0 to 100000

Seabed Texture - Use the drop-down list to select the default seabed texture for your project. Available selections are; Rock, Sand and Muddy options. You can type in your selection in the topmost search field to narrow down the options.

Screenshot

Sky Texture - This dropdown list allows the user to select how the sky in the 3D visualisation will look, the image below shows an example of how it could look.

Screenshot

Layer Metalness - This is used on layer data to adjust how metallic the material looks in 3D

Layer Roughness - This is used on layer data to adjust how the material looks in terms of roughness in 3D

Layer Bump Scale - This scales the normal map used for computing lighting. This scale can be useful as it makes bumps in the terrain more clear, exaggerating the roughness of a layer.

Sun position - This is a realtime hillshade simulation. A hillshade is a grayscale 3D representation of the surface, with the sun's relative position taken into account for shading the image. Applying hillshade lighting to Bathymetry will create a relief map of the bathymetry or landscape if you will that will provide better detail for deciding your field layout and pipeline routing. Applying the real time hillshade effect on the same bathymetry will yield another result that reveals much more detail about the actual topography e.g. seabed:

Screenshot

As you can see the relief map of the same bathymetry created in real time is now much more useful with providing geographical detail for especially your pipeline routing design as one example.

For this new feature to be effective you will need to load new or re-upload bathymetry to older projects as we compute a “Normal” map when converting the bathymetry data on the backend to achieve this effect. This effect works for both 2D and 3D view and you adjust the sun’s relative position in the “Settings” tab with the “Sun” dial.

Screenshot

Tags

Any asset or connection can be tagged with a user defined name e.g. Drill Center #1, or in the sample illustration below imported connections are tagged with "simulation". This makes it easy to create groups. Every item that share the same tag is automatically put in a folder under the tags node in the tree.

Screenshot

Using the tags functionality these grouped assets and/or connections can then all be selected by one click and you can perform operations such move, copy, delete, turn on/off, edit all common attributes, and finally easily mass edit common attributes. Tags are also accessible through the API.

Commands

If you right click on a Tag you will have the following commands available:

Screenshot

Hide all - This will hide any object(s) the tag is associated with, this is also true if this project is used in Linked Projects.

Hide all (current user only) - This will hide any object(s) the tag is associated with but only for your own user. Other user of the projects will still see the object(s).

Select all - Will select any object(s) in the Viewport that the tag is associated with.

View Points

You can create a View Point of the current scene view location in either 2D or 3D mode. You do this in the Create Menu. The created viewpoints will appear in the View Point section as shown here:

Screenshot

To navigate to a view point double click on the desired entry in the list. The View Points are prefaced with [2D] or [3D] which shows the view mode they were created in. Your viewport mode must match the viewpoint to be taken to that exact camera position.

ProjectView Functionality

In Project View that uses a tree-view structure to display all project data and content you have certain general functionality that is available for all layers or folders if you will. This goes to controlling visibility, using commands, multi-selection etc.

Alt text

The illustration above shows the Project View Tab (1), the project view content tree structure area (2), and the associated information section (3) with all the associated property pages for your selection.

You navigate the tree structure by clicking on a desired content folder. This will then open and expand to show the content or close and collapse based on the current state. The icons will also change accordingly:

Alt text

If you click on the line with the ">" symbol and the Asset Folder name it will then expand and show the content. Note! You can have nested levels of content.

Alt text

As you can see the Assets folder has several folders inside that represents the various asset types that have been used in the project. To any of these nested folders simply click on them as you did for Assets. To close any folder, simply click on it again.

Custom Tree-View

If you want a custom configuration of the Project View default tree-view you can also build your own custom tree-view and categorise items in to better fit your workflow/layout needs. You can also use both configurations, and easily switch from one to another. Note! If you activate this option the default folder definitions from FieldTwin Design will not be shown and all items in Project View will just be listed so you can rearrange them into your custom folder structure.

In the top left corner of the Project View you will see the following icons:

Alt text

Click on the leftmost icon to activate the custom tree layout. This will highlight the icon in green to indicate that the custom tree mode is active:

Alt text

Click this icon again to revert to default!

This allows you to click on the Create Folder icon to add a new custom folder. The following dialog will be presented:

Alt text

Type in the name of the new folder e.g. Special Equipment and press the Save button to create it. Note! You can of course create nested folders.

Drag and drop

After you have created your custom tree view structure you can now simply drag and drop any item in Project View into your custom folders and structure it as you like:

Alt text

Selection

To select a folder entry, simply click on it and it will change color to green as shown here:

Alt text

This will then also populate the associated data in the information section (3) under the tree view window.

To multi-select several entries, you can use the following keys together with the mouse selection:

Key Command
CTRL Add individual entries clicked on
SHIFT Add all items from selection to the clicked entry

So holding down the CTRL key and clicking on additional entries selects these:

Alt text

You can also use the Checkmark icon to select all entries in a folder:

Alt text

Simply, click on the checkmark icon as indicated by the arrow in the illustration above. This will then select all entries in that folder:

Alt text

To unselect all simply click it again.

Visibility

Alt text

There are two (2) different object visibility controls icons available in project view signified by the world + small eye icon and the person + small eye icon next to each other as illustrated above:

The leftmost World+eye icon will toggle the list item visibility on/off when you click it and it is the current project setting for what is visible in the Viewport. If you turn off visibility of an object (asset, connection etc.) here it will then not be visible for any other users in that project either.

Note! This is also true if your project is part of a Linked Project so when making an object not visible here means that it will also not be visible for any project the current project is linked into!

The rightmost Person + eye icon is controlling visibility per user only. If you use this on any object it will toggle the visible/non visible state, but only for your own user. It is important to note the difference between these two options as the first affects all users, whereas the latter is just controls visibility for yourself.

Alt text

You can also turn the entire layer/folder visibility on and off by clicking the corresponding World/Eye or Person/Eye icon to the left of the corresponding layer folder. Click again to toggle the state back.

Alt text

Commands

All content items in the project view folders (connections, assets, etc.) have a set of common and selection specific commands that are available to be executed. You can access these commands in two ways.

If you right click on a selected entry or selection of entries in project view or in a Viewport selection, a menu of available options will be displayed as shown here with the top item designating the number of selected entities. This illustration shows the commands for a connection:

Alt text

These options are also available in the Properties section represented by the icons and the "More" menu as shown here highlighted in red:

Alt text

The commands that are available varies based on the type of asset, surface, etc. you have selected. The available commands are as follows:

General commands

Locate - This will locate the selection(s) on the Viewport. You can also just double click on an entry in project view to do this.

Hide/Show - Hides/Shows the selection(s) in the Viewport. Same as clicking on the corresponding eye icon.

Lock/Unlock - This will lock the selection(s) on stage so it can't be moved, deleted or have its metadata edited. Note! If you project is part of a linked project the lock/unlock function is only available in the parent project itself.

Delete - Deletes the selection(s).

Copy Metadata - Copy the associated metadata from the selection(s). See Metadata.

Paste metadata - If you have copied metadata from other similar selection(s), select this command to paste it to the new selection(s).
