Linked Popups

The Linked Popups feature allows you to enhance your interactive experiences by creating dynamic connections between image or video elements and popup elements. With Linked Popups, you can create engaging interactions where a popup element opens automatically when a linked image or video element is clicked. Furthermore, any updates made to the image or video asset will automatically reflect in the linked popup, ensuring seamless synchronization.

Key Features

  • Connect Image/Video Elements: Establish a connection between an image or video element and a popup element to create interactive experiences.

  • Automatic Popup Trigger: Whenever the linked image or video element is clicked, the popup element will open automatically, offering a seamless user experience.

  • Real-time Asset Updates: Any changes made to the image or video asset will be instantly reflected in the linked popup, eliminating the need for manual updates.

Getting Started

To use Linked Popups, follow these steps:

  1. Add Image/Video Element: Begin by adding an image or video element to your experience. You can upload your own asset or choose from the File Manager.

  2. Establish Link: Next, click on the "Add a New Linked Popup" button on the element's property panel. Alternatively, select an existing Popup element from the dropdown below the button. This will serve as the container for the content that will appear when the linked image or video element is clicked.

  3. Navigate, Unlink, Delete linked popup: Editors can navigate quickly to the linked popup element by clicking the "Go to Linked Popup" button. There are quick actions to delete and unlink the linked popup element.

  4. Customize Popup: Customize the design and content of the popup element to match your preferences. You can add a heading, description and background. You can also change the content to be shown in the Popup.

  5. Preview and Publish: Preview your Metaverse experience to test the Linked Popups feature. Ensure that the popup opens correctly when the linked image or video element is clicked. Make any necessary adjustments and then publish your project.

Example Use Cases

  1. Product Showcase: Create a Metaverse experience where clicking on different product images triggers a popup with detailed information, pricing, and a call-to-action button for purchasing the product.

  2. Virtual Tour: Design a virtual tour where clicking on specific areas within a 360-degree image opens popups with additional details, such as historical facts, multimedia content, or navigation options.

  3. Video Galleries: Build an interactive video gallery where each thumbnail image is linked to a popup containing the corresponding video. Users can easily browse and watch videos without leaving the Metaverse experience.

  4. Storytelling and Narration: Use Linked Popups to create interactive stories or presentations where users can click on specific images or video elements to reveal additional narrative content or interactive branching paths.

Best Practices

  • Keep the popup content concise and relevant to maintain a smooth user experience.

  • Ensure that the linked image or video element clearly indicates its interactive nature, such as by using hover effects or clickable overlays.

  • Test the Metaverse experience thoroughly across different platforms and devices to ensure the Linked Popups work consistently.


  • If the popup does not open when the linked image or video element is clicked, double-check the link configuration and ensure that the elements are properly connected.

  • If the asset changes are not reflected in the linked popup, verify that you are modifying the correct image or video element. Assets are only synced when there are no manual modifications made to the Popup element.
