## Visual Scene Maker IDE
The Visual SceneMaker IDE, enables authors to create, maintain, debug, and execute an application via graphical interface controls.
The IDE displays two working areas in the middle of the window, the sceneflow editor and the scene-script editor. In order to build an application,
authors can drag building blocks from the left side and drop them on the respective editor. Building blocks for sceneflows are nodes, edges, scenes, and predefined Java functions.
All properties of nodes, such as type- and variable definitions as well as function calls, can be modified right to the sceneflow working area. All defined types and variables are shown in a separate variable badge within the sceneflow editor. To facilitate maintaining and testing, the execution of an application can be visualized either by highlighting the currently executed nodes, edges, and scenes red at runtime or by highlighting all past actions and execution paths gray.
