# Can I add 3D objects as subfigures (using movie15)

I have faced one stiff problem that when I try to add four 3D plots (2 rows x 2 columns) in my beamer by using subfigure approach, I fail!

This is my minimal example:

\begin{frame}
\begin{figure}[t]
\centering

\subfigure[Figure No.1]{\label{fig4a}\includemovie[poster,toolbar,
3Daac=7, 3Droll=0, 3Dc2c=0.000000 1.000000 0.000000, 3Droo=17.320508, 3Dcoo=0 0 0,3Dlights=CAD,]{0.3\linewidth}
{0.3\linewidth}{Files/plot1.u3d}}

\subfigure[Figure No.2]{\label{fig4b}\includemovie[poster,toolbar,
3Daac=7, 3Droll=0, 3Dc2c=0.000000 1.000000 0.000000, 3Droo=17.320508, 3Dcoo=0 0 0,3Dlights=CAD,]{0.2\linewidth}
{0.2\linewidth}{Files/plot2.u3d}} \\

\subfigure[Figure No.3]{\label{fig4c}\includemovie[poster,toolbar,
3Daac=7, 3Droll=0, 3Dc2c=0.000000 1.000000 0.000000, 3Droo=17.320508, 3Dcoo=0 0 0,3Dlights=CAD,]{0.3\linewidth}
{0.3\linewidth}{Files/plot3.u3d}}

\subfigure[Figure No.4]{\label{fig4d}\includemovie[poster,toolbar,
3Daac=7, 3Droll=0, 3Dc2c=0.000000 1.000000 0.000000, 3Droo=17.320508, 3Dcoo=0 0 0,3Dlights=CAD,]{0.2\linewidth}
{0.2\linewidth}{Files/plot4.u3d}}

\caption{Four 3D Plots}
\label{fig1}
\end{figure}
\end{frame}


Any help or any new suggested method!

• Thanks Raincoat for your comment .. I have put the answer in a separate reply – Sitra Feb 26 '15 at 9:00

I have solved the above problem by using the old subfigure package .. I put it below just for helping anyone who may face similar problem:

\includemovie[poster,toolbar,
3Daac=7, 3Droll=0, 3Dc2c=0.000000 1.000000 0.000000, 3Droo=17.320508, 3Dcoo=0 0 0,3Dlights=CAD,]{0.7\linewidth}{0.7\linewidth}{file1.u3d}
\caption{\scriptsize Sub caption1}

• subfigure package? The syntax used here is from the newer subcaption package, while that in the question is from subfigure. However, the key difference between this code and the one in your question is, I think, that you don't have paragraph breaks (empty lines) between each subfigure here. You didn't say how it failed, but with the code in your question each subfigure will be placed on a separate line. – Torbjørn T. Feb 26 '15 at 9:23
• My last answer was written 3 months ago, and I just put it in a separate answer based on Raincoat recommendation .. Regarding your question: Based on my memory, I think the first code was put without spacing (paragraph breaks or empty lines) and it didn't work – Sitra Mar 1 '15 at 10:58
