The "Globals" tab allows you to define global parameters for the current CG scene. It has two embedded tabs for setting the loop and background parameters:

globals_tab

Titler Loop

The scene has a global loop structure with start and end frame markers specifying its range:

  • Start Frame – specifies the initial frame of the loop.

  • End Frame – specifies the final frame of the loop.

The start and end frames of the loop span are shown as green bars on the timeline:

Global_Loop
  • Play – specifies the loop play mode. Choose the desired play mode from the pull-down list.

  • Count – defines the number of loop repeats.

  • Leave Loop at Frame – defines the frame number at which the scene leaves loop.

  • Leave Loop Trigger – manually triggers the scene to leave the loop and play to its end.

  • Loop Scene – specifies whether the whole scene should be played in a loop.

Background

Globals_background_tab

Set the "Don’t show Video" option for the object’s background to be opaque and of the specified color.

For example, this can be used to create a squeezeback: reduce the video or image size to allow other items (such as logos, text crawls, etc.) to be seen in the display area:

Note
Please note, background color is used only on the Cinegy Type template editing stage and is not passed to the output.
