Working With Media​-Store Animations

Media​-Store animations are used for things animated backgrounds, branding "bugs", or media transitions. You can set up an animation to loop, play automatically when take on-air, play in reverse, or even play at different speeds.

You can play an animation manually by selecting the source button for the Media​-Store channel with the animation you want to play, and pressing Run. The knob changed to Stop as the animation is playing.

Keep the following in mind:

Keep the following in mind when working with Media​-Store animations:

  • When you load an animation to an off-air Media​-Store channel, or the animation goes off-air with a transition, the preview shows the cut point (CutFr) for that animation, and not the first frame of the video.
  • You can manually cycle through frames by turning the Run knob while the animation is stopped.
  • Double-pressing the Run knob stops playback and re-cues the animation to the first frame.
  • You can shuttle forwards and backwards through the animation by turning the positioner clockwise or anti-clockwise when the animation is stopped. Shuttle speed is increased and decreased by turning the positioner more or less in each direction.
  • You can run or stop an animation by pressing the button on the top of the positioner.
