Animate & Design modes

We introduce a toggle in the top bar that allows you to switch easily between a mode when you can design your objects, and a mode where you can animate them.

In Design mode, you can focus on the design of your objects before any animation is applied to it. We display the design inspector with all the object properties.

In Animate mode, you can focus on adding animations to your objects, and customize them in the inspector.
