What is a placeholder?

In the introduction of Section 2, the instructor said that we will use placeholder. I’m spanish so there are some words that I don’t understand. Can someone tell me what is a placeholder in this context?

I think it means like a prototype but not sure

Just off the top of my head, a placeholder usually means a temporary item that will be replaced with a different item at a later time.

Placeholders (cubes, cylinders, planes, etc.) will help you organize and visual your final scene. Placeholders generally are temporary items and will be replaced in the future with a finalized, completed, item.

Hope this is helpful and answers your question. :slight_smile:


yes, it was really useful. :slight_smile:
