Preview Design

Top  Previous  Next

Creating a preview is the first step in using the Pixel Editor. No sequencing can be done without a preview.

 

A preview defines the lighting elements in your display and how they are arranged. It allows your sequence to be simulated during playback. It may contain just the elements you plan to sequence using the Pixel Editor, or it may contain every element of your display (including the elements sequenced in the Sequence Editor). If you choose the latter, then you can see the combined results of your Sequence Editor and Pixel Editor sequences without ever leaving the Pixel Editor.

 

One preview can be associated with multiple sequences. Update the preview once, and the next time you open any sequence associated with that preview, the update will be automatically be applied.
