|You can insert a dummy item into the playlist by pressing the "+Dummy" button or by selecting the "Insert" > "Dummy item" command from the context menu. The default keyboard shortcut is <Shift+D>.|
This item is a reserved "empty" item with a fixed duration. It is used to reserve a fixed amount of time in the schedule, to be filled later with item(s) of a corresponding duration.
A dummy item is not broadcast. Operator must fill it in with appropriate clip(s) via the Windows Explorer or Inventory Browser before going on-air. If this item is not completely filled when the previous item in the playlist is on-air, the dummy item is not marked as cued and is automatically skipped; the next actual playlist item is marked as cued and is broadcast instead.
Until filled in appropriately, dummy items are shown in red.
By default, the dummy item duration is 15 minutes, but you can change the default duration in the "Preferences" dialog.
To fill in the dummy item, select the actual item in Inventory Browser or the Windows Explorer, hold the <Ctrl> key down and drag-and-drop the item into the selected dummy item position; the dummy will be filled with media and metadata of this item.
The dummy item behavior depends on the duration of an item it is filled with. If the inserted item is shorter, the dummy item is cropped correspondingly and placed after it.
If the inserted item is longer, the following dialog appears:
Press "Yes" to keep the original dummy item duration; in this case the clip Out point will be shifted back to match the required duration.
Choose "No" to preserve the duration of the new item.
Abort the replacement by pressing "Cancel".
Depending on your playback configuration, a live signal goes from the defined input device or from IP (if the "Use RTP/UDP input" option is enabled) to output without being affected by Cinegy Air.
|Press the "+Live" button on the item editor panel to add a live item after the selected item. This command is also available from the "Item" main menu: "Insert" > "Live item". The default keyboard shortcut is <Shift+L>.|
Having added a live item to the playlist, the follow item will be triggered as manual end. Clocked trigger type items will be unchanged.
By default, the live item duration is 15 minutes, but you can change the default duration in the "Preferences" dialog.
To define the RTP/UDP source URL, select the "Item properties..." command from the live item context menu and switch to the "Parameters" tab. The description of "Live Source" parameters is given here. Alternatively, you can simply drag-and-drop the RTP/UDP URL from the Cinegy Route Browser holding the <Ctrl> key down directly to the live item entry in the playlist.
|Press the "+Note" button or select the "Insert" > "Comment" command from the "Item" main menu to add a note to the playlist above the currently selected item. Adding a note does not affect your time scale. To edit a note, double-click it or press <F2> and enter your new text. Hit <Esc> to cancel the operation.|
