  • Auto play movies created – When an instance is created from any source, it will open and begin to play.
  • Full screen presentation mode –
  • Synchronize source movie with full screen movie
  • Adjust display resolution for full screen movies – This option reduces the screen resolution when presenting movies full screen. It can help smooth out playback when viewing movies full screen, particularly on older computers. This is helpful when presenting H.264 compressed movies. Note: the screen will go through a black transition period when a movie is presented, this is normal.
  • Use single field for interlaced movies– Only one field is shown of an interlaced movie. This helps clean up jagged edges when the video is paused.
  • Deinterlace interlaced movies– This option blends both fields of interlaced video to help reduce the jagged appearance in interlaced video.
  • Duration of static text for instances – This sets the duration of static text and titles for instance movies created from the timeline, matrix, and movie organizer.
  • Maximum number of pictures in Movie Organizer title – This sets how many pictures will be used in the title as a background effect. Setting this zero will create a black with row text only. Using large number settings can cause the movie organizer movie creation time to be very long especially if there are a large amount of rows in the organizer.
  • Limit chapter track text to __ characters – When there are a lot of labels for an instance, the instance movie cannot display them in the chapter menu of the instance movie window. The chapter menu is removed in this situation. To retain the chapter menu, set an amount of text to be displayed in this setting, only that amount of characters will be displayed and the rest will be truncated. This allows enough room for the timeline in the instance movie to be displayed and used properly.
  • No sound if movie playback speed is greater than __ percent – Setting this option helps using the playback speed slider in the Movie floating toolbar. In some cases, the default playback speed may be greatly increased to allow for faster coding. Cutting out the sound playback makes this process smoother.
  • Lead time for stack switch in timeline movie – The default for this setting is 10, this means when one angle of the stack is being played and the view is switched, the playhead will jump back 10 seconds, so the new view can be easily replayed without rewinding. This jump only occurs when the movie is playing. If the movie is paused, the angles will switch without the playhead moving.
  • Stack Switch Hotkeys – Turn on the Stack Switch hotkeys by selecting the check box, then click on the boxes next to Movie 1, Movie 2, etc. Choose a hotkey by pressing a key on the keyboard. Movie 1 will be the top right angle, Movie 2 will be the next one to the right and so on. If there are 4 or more angles, the numbering will flow from right to left and down. Note: These hotkeys will override any other hotkeys in the application, so it is recommended that code windows are checked for clashing hotkeys.
