The MCRitem is an XML file that defines a separate playback element in the playlist with the set of metadata that describes the given item. It can represent a simple clip or a comprehensive Sequence with titlers, effects, pictures and voice-overs inside. The MCRitem also includes descriptive metadata (name, description, comment) and the data, defining the processing and display of the given item.
This allows you to send a prepared Sequence directly to the playlist from your Cinegy Desktop without rendering the media file. The rendering will be performed on-the-fly.
To create an MCRitem, follow the steps:
- Create a shared folder (e.g. Inventory) where the *.MCRitems will be stored.
- Open the Cinegy Desktop application:
- Select the desired Sequence or clip from the Roll/ClipBin and choose the "Send to inventory..." command from the context menu:
The common "Save as" dialog box appears:
Navigate to your dedicated inventory folder and enter a file name into the text field.
- Press the "Save" button to create the ".MCRitem" file with the name you specified.
Use integrated Inventory Browser in file browser mode to add *.MCRitem(s) to a Cinegy Air playlist.
