Creating and playing a show
You have seen in the previous chapter how to create times lines. Here, you will learn how to position effects (lighting and/or multimedia) to build the development of your show.
Positioning and resizing the effects
It is quite simple to insert a new effect: drag it from the bin towards the corresponding time line. You can also modify the length or even the departure point thanks to the various tools available.
To move an effect, click on it with the mouse and move it without releasing the pressure on the mouse button. To change the size of an effect, move the mouse cursor to one end: the cursor appears as showed below:
Then, just maintain the pressure on the mouse button to move the effect extremity so as to enlarge or reduce its size.
Please note that a scene will not be released when its execution comes to an end. You have to call for a new one to release it in the 2006 software.
Playing a show
The reading, stopping or pausing of a show is performed from the "monitor" window shown below.
The following functions appear from left to right:
· Go to the start of the reading area
· Video full screen display
· Speed rewind and forward function....
Each show has its own reading area meaning that reading will be only performed on this part of the show. You can change its dimension by moving one of its extremity (see above).
