Video Preferences

Top  Previous  Next

Musical sequences are associated with a song or other sound effect, from either an audio file (such as an MP3) or a video file (such as a WMV file).  If a musical sequence is associated with a video file, Light-O-Rama can display the video during play.  Or, for an audio file, Light-O-Rama can display a visualization.

 

The Video Preferences dialog, of the Preferences submenu of the Sequence Editor's Edit menu, can be used to control whether and how video is displayed during play.

 

Note: Most of these settings affect not only play of sequences in the Sequence Editor, but also play of shows by the Show Player.

 

The following options can be set via the Video Preferences dialog:

 

Display Videos
Display Audio Visualizations
Use Full Screen Mode
Use Audio Track Only When Sequencing With Video Media
Select Monitor

The Video Preferences dialog

 

Display Videos

 

If "Show Videos" is enabled on the Video submenu of the View menu, and a musical sequence based on a video file is played by the Sequence Editor, Light-O-Rama will display the video during play.

 

You can control whether "Show Videos" is enabled by default via this setting on the Video Preferences menu.  This also affects play during shows, by the Show Player.

 

Display Audio Visualizations

 

If "Show Audio Visualizations" is enabled on the Video submenu of the View menu, and a musical sequence based on an audio file is played by the Sequence Editor, Light-O-Rama will display a visualization of the audio during play.

 

You can control whether "Show Audio Visualizations" is enabled by default via this setting on the Video Preferences menu.  This also affects play during shows, by the Show Player.

 

Use Full Screen Mode

 

If "Full Screen" is enabled on the Video submenu of the View menu, and a video or audio visualization is displayed for a musical sequence being played by the Sequence Editor, Light-O-Rama will display the video or visualization during play.

 

You can control whether "Full Screen" is enabled by default via this setting on the Video Preferences menu.  This also affects play during shows, by the Show Player.

 

Use Audio Track Only When Sequencing With Video Media

 

If this option is selected, then when a musical sequence with a video is played in the Sequence Editor, only the audio track of the video will be played when running the sequence.  This can speed up sequencing with video, since the video itself is not loaded (only the audio track is loaded).  If you unselect this option, the video will be played as normal.

 

Select Monitor

 

If you have more than one monitor hooked up to your computer, you can use this button to select which monitor Light-O-Rama will use when it displays videos or audio visualizations.  This also affects play during shows, by the Show Player.
