Scene in a sentence as a noun

I learnt OpenGL so that I could create the 3D scene.

It's a big one: You're not taking into account the way other objects in the scene affect that little point.

First scene shows a guy writing on a typewriter, next scene shows someone hanging up Polaroid pictures.

The computing scene at that time revolved around Microsoft like the many moons of Jupiter.

****, I'm even done with sketchy torrent sites, and different scene groups fighting over who gets to release what, and a billion codecs and formats.

Arrington and his stories reflect the scene - if he is pumping a startup, it is because through talking to dozens of investors he keeps hearing about it.

This has some negative consequences too but it means that retail investors and mutual funds have largely been excluded from the startup scene, which honestly is a Good Thing [tm]; and5.

When you get really good you can even start reprocessing a scene or a model, deconstructing it in your mind and then reconstructing it via some other technique.
