Scenes represent a set of visual objects to render.

Typically a glTF file contains only a single scene, although more are allowed and useful in some cases. No particular meaning is associated with additional scenes, except as defined by the application. Scenes reference Nodes, and a single node cannot be a member of more than one scene.




propertyType: SCENE

Property type.


  • copy(other: Scene, resolve?: <T>(t: T) => T): Scene
  • dispatchEvent(event: BaseEvent): Scene
  • Events.

  • dispose(): void
  • Removes both inbound references to and outbound references from this object. At the end of the process the object holds no references, and nothing holds references to it. A disposed object is not reusable.

  • equals(other: Scene): boolean
  • Returns true if two properties are deeply equivalent, recursively comparing the attributes of the properties. For example, two Primitives are equivalent if they have accessors and materials with equivalent content — but not necessarily the same specific accessors and materials.

  • getDefaults(): Nullable<IScene>
  • getExtension<Prop>(name: string): Prop
  • getExtras(): Record<string, unknown>
  • getName(): string
  • init(): void
  • isDisposed(): boolean
  • Returns true if the node has been permanently removed from the graph.

  • listChildren(): Node[]
  • listExtensions(): ExtensionProperty<IProperty>[]
  • listParents(): Property<IProperty>[]
  • Returns a list of all properties that hold a reference to this property. For example, a material may hold references to various textures, but a texture does not hold references to the materials that use it.

    It is often necessary to filter the results for a particular type: some resources, like Accessors, may be referenced by different types of properties. Most properties include the Root as a parent, which is usually not of interest.


    const materials = texture
        .filter((p) => p instanceof Material)
  • setExtension<Prop>(name: string, extensionProperty: Prop): Scene
  • setExtras(extras: Record<string, unknown>): Scene
  • setName(name: string): Scene
