Area of Interest parameter

A polygon feature layer can be used to define the area of interest in the mobile scene package. Only features that intersect the area of interest are included in the mobile scene package. Use the Area of Interest parameter in the Create Mobile Scene Package tool to define the area of interest.

Extent parameter

The Extent parameter can be used when multiple scenes are input into the Create Mobile Scene Package tool. The extent of all input scenes is taken into account when creating the mobile scene package.
