When would be possible to sync scene objects in runtime with Dots component

    For example, I have a subscene with some objects and I want to select them after they are converted to dots in runtime at least to see where they are, focus camera, see how they are moving etc. It would be great to have some kind of sync between key components like Visibility, Translate and Rotate to Transform component of GameObject. Is it in plans or maybe there are some extended tools already?
    Thanks.

    No I need the opposite. Reapply transforms to scene model entity was created from.

    I've written a system to do it. Probably a Live LInk should do the same and EditorRenderData has some clear purpose but it is not working for me for some reason.

    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2. public class DOTStoSceneLink : JobComponentSystem
    3. {
    4.     protected override JobHandle OnUpdate(JobHandle inputDeps)
    5.     {
    6.         Entities.ForEach((ref Translation data, ref Rotation rot, in EditorRenderData editorRenderData) =>
    7.         {
    8.             if (editorRenderData.PickableObject != null)
    9.             {
    10.                 editorRenderData.PickableObject.transform.position = data.Value;
    11.                 editorRenderData.PickableObject.transform.rotation = rot.Value;
    12.             }
    13.         }).WithoutBurst().Run();
    14.  
    15.         return default;
    16.     }
    17. }
    18.
