Use the main menu to access commands to operate the Cinegy Studio components and playout:

main_menu

When launched for the first time, Cinegy Studio has the default layout. It can be changed to one of the available layout variants via the "Open Layout" submenu from the "View" main menu:

default_layout_menu

It is also possible to adjust the application layout according to your requirements. To enable layout management mode, use the "Edit Layout" command from the "View" main menu:

Edit_layout_command

The interface consists of two panels – the left and the right one – which can be resized by dragging the grid line horizontally to decrease/increase the panels proportionally:

Layout_editing

The number of columns on both panels can be adjusted from 1 to 4 columns. To change the number of columns on the left or right panel, select the necessary option in the "Left Panel" and "Right Panel" submenus respectively from the "Edit" main menu in layout editing mode:

Layout_columns_number

The left panel can be hidden by choosing "Off" from the "Left Panel" submenu of the "Edit" main menu in layout editing mode:

left_pannel_off
Note
If any of these options is unavailable, this means that the layout has not enough free space.

To remove all the elements added to the current layout, use the "Reset (Clear)" command from the "Edit" main menu in layout editing mode:

reset_layout_command
Caution
This command is performed without any confirmation request. The operation cannot be undone.

Layout Components

To enable the display of the Cinegy Studio components and devices panels, use the corresponding options from the context menu in layout editing mode:

Layout_edit_context_menu
Important
The details on enabling and using every layout component are given further in this section.

Once the layout is composed, use the "Apply Layout" command from the "View" main menu in layout editing mode to apply the changes and exit this mode:

apply_layout

Saving the Layout

The edited layout can be saved for further use by selecting the "Save Layout…​" command from the "File" main menu in layout editing mode:

save_layout

In the dialog that appears enter the desired layout name and press "OK":

save_layout_dialog

The "Layouts" list displays all the previously saved layouts.

The name of the layout being saved should be unique, otherwise it will be suggested to overwrite the existing layout with the current one:

overwrite_layout

The saved layout will be added to the list of available layouts. To open a previously saved layout, use the "Open Layout" submenu of the "File" menu in layout editing mode. In regular workflow, the same action is performed with the "Open Layout" submenu from the "View" main menu:

Open_layout
