Capsule Shape Component
The Capsule Shape component creates a transparent capsule that’s oriented on the local Z axis. The dimensions of the capsule can be edited with the Height and Radius properties. The Capsule Shape component is not a mesh, but rather a helper geometry that can be used to define volumes for area lights, shape gradients, audio, vegetation, PhysX, and any application that can utilize the Shape EBus. For more information on using Shape components, see Shape components.
