inspector_sub-meshThe Sub Mesh Inspector opens when a Sub Mesh or Surface from an Editable Mesh is selected in the Project tab.

Folder and File ID
Set numeric virtual file and folder IDs for DMX, PB Automation and Widget Designer remote control and thumbnail exchange.

Segments
Here you can change the horizontal and vertical Segment count of a Mesh which is known as Mesh points in the Warper. The advantage of many Segments is that you can warp with more detail whilst the disadvantage is that this takes more time. If you project on a surface that is only partly complicated whilst other parts are more plane and would allow fewer Segments, the Planar or Perspective UV Mapping Mode might offer an alternative solution as it allows to assign a UV map from one source to multiple meshes.

Note that you should adjust the Segment count before warping as any change will erase

Size, Position and Rotation
All these settings influence the mesh before it is even assigned to a Layer. Enter pixel values for "Size" and "Position" and degrees values for "Rotation". Note that working in the Sub Mesh Mode within the Mesh Editing Mode in the Preview changes these values as well!

Reset UV Coordinates
This resets the UV Coordinates and applies the default UV map. You can change the UV map with the Planar or Perspective UV Mapping Mode from the Preview.

Reset all Modifiers
This resets the FFD and Vertex Modifier in case you have moved FFD or Vertex points using the according modifier in the Mesh Editing Mode from the Preview.

Editing Wireframe Color
If you click on the colored box, a dialog opens were you can choose another color for the mesh which is visible in the Mesh Editing Mode when the FFD or Vertex Modifier is selected. This is especially useful if you need to overlap several meshes. Coloring one red, and the other green for example will result in yellow lines if both meshes overlap (partly).
The Reset button assigns a light gray color again.

Mesh Modifier
You can select either the FFD or the Vertex Modifier and click the below buttons.
The "Enabled" button toggles the selected modifier off and on again.
The "Reset" button resets all points of the selected modifier to the initial default position.

If you select the FFD Modifier, you can change the "Control point count" below the list. The according count for the Mesh "Segments" can be found at the top of the Inspector.

Clip Color
Please see the File Inspector.
