How the viewer (where the medias are displayed) works ?

You can import to LiveEdit as many medias as you want. Up to 4 medias can be displayed at the same time in the viewer.

The top bar of the viewer contains two menus :

  1. The left one is the list of the medias contained in the scene. It displays the actual media output in the viewer.
    You can click on it to get the list of medias contained in the scene and select what to output.

  2. On the right there is the « View » menu giving you access to a scrolling list with two choices : « Single view » or « Multiple views ».

    To choose what media to display simply click on the eye contained in the track head of the desired media.

    The viewer automatically switches to the selected media.
  2. Multiple views : you can view up to 4 medias at the same time in the viewer.
    First switch the viewer mode to « Multiple Views ».

    As it is for the single view, you choose the medias to display by clicking on the eyes in the track heads.
