Layer Properties

Every layer has some properties which determine its behaviour.
You can modify and adjust them 2 different ways:
  • By clicking on a layer which will cause its properties to appear in the Properties window.
  • or by double-clicking on a layer and access the Layer Properties from the Layer Layout window


In Layer Properties, you can modify the values of different variables or add additional ones.

Variable Groups

Some of the varible groups in the Layer Properties window are the same in every layer. These include General and DMX groups.
The Custom group has an option to add variables to it by clicking on the + icon.
Good to know: if you right click on the name of the variable group, a popup will appear where you can rename the group.
A Video Layer contains a Media group, where you can select an imported video.
Good to know: You can use our custom templates or you can modify your own template and save it as your own custom template

Layer Notes

You can add custom notes to every layer by first checking the Notes checkbox and then writing into the text box.
When you write a note, a * symbol will appear next to the Layer name. If you hover over a layer with a mouse, the note will show up.
