PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

Building on the knowledge of how video layers work in the TriCaster the following discusses the use of the Local Layer Controls.

SOLUTION AND WORKAROUND

These tools provide control and configuration options individually for three of the primary video layers – BKGD, DSK 1 and DSK 2. Source menus are located next to the Take buttons for each DSK layer.

Pressing the local Take button for either DSK 1 or DSK 2 displays or hides the corresponding video layer (shown on top of the BKGD layer). The local Auto buttone for each layer perform similarly, but use the transition settings configured at the right for each layer to accomplish the operation.

You can halt an incomplete transition by clicking Auto again. For BKGD transitions, the Auto will be completed the next time you click the button. Re-initiating an incomplete DSK transition that is past its midway point completes it; otherwise it is reversed.

Transition bins for each layer allow you to pre-select the effect that will be performed next ( the active transition is displayed with a gold border). The left-most effect is always Fade.
