The Fundamental Studio Elements

Fundamental Studio Elements (1-12)


The Fundamental Studio elements are: the Connect and Refresh Composition Button, Add and Delete Playlist Button, Add and Delete Overlay Button, Automating Playlist Buttons, Active Overlay, Overlay IN/OUT Buttons, Editable Overlay Elements, Add Overlay Timer, Update and Delete Overlay, Start Streaming Button, Studio Stream Settings Button, and the Studio Settings Button.

1 - Connect and Refresh Composition

The left button allows you to connect a Composition to your Studio show. The right button allows you to reload the Composition, which is useful when changes have been made to your connected Composition

2 - Add and Delete Playlist

Clicking this button creates a new playlist as its own tab. You can name it by clicking on the title to highlight for changes. Delete the playlist by selecting the X on the tab.

3 - Add and Delete Overlay

This allows you to add and delete overlays that have been added to a playlist in the Playlist Panel (C).

4 - Automating Playlist Buttons

These buttons (from left to right) will tell the overlays with timers in the selected playlist tab to stop, auto-advance, or play in a loop. Using auto-advance plays through the timed overlays once.

5 - Active Overlay

When you select an overlay in the Playlist Panel (C), you can change the editable fields in the Overlay Editor. The overlay will also appear in the Preview Window.

6 - Overlay IN/OUT Buttons

This button takes your overlay On Air. When On Air, the button can be selected to take it Off-Air.

7 - Editable Overlay Elements

These sections in the Overlay Editor are examples of content that is editable within your overlays. In this example, you can change the overlay name as well as the "Title" and the "Baseline Text" in your overlay.

8 - Add Overlay Timer

This is where you can add a timer to a overlay. Having timed overlay allows you to automate your overlays in a playlist.

9 - Update Overlay, Delete Overlay

In Singular, you can edit the contents of a overlay while it's On Air but the overlay itself won't move. Select this Update button after changing content in the Overlay Editor and you will see the information update. You can also select the right-hand button to delete the selected overlay if you so choose.
