Cinegy Type allows you to add multiple layers of automation controlled, template based titles, logos, animated graphics, and more. This module addresses simple requirements such as logo insertion right through to complex branding with templated information and animated video plates.

Creating a CG Scene

To create a new CG scene, follow the steps:

  1. Open the DocumentBin in which you want the CG scene to be located.

  2. Choose the "New Cinegy Type…​" command from the right-click menu or press the cinegy_type_iconbutton in the menu bar of the DocumentBin; the "Create a Cinegy Type scene" dialog box appears:

    type_scene_create
    Important
    The "Create a Cinegy Type scene" dialog view may be different depending on the set of metadata fields assigned to the titler. Please refer to the Node Metadata article to learn more about node metadata.
  3. Enter a unique name for the Cinegy Type scene.

  4. Choose the appropriate TV format for the scene. It must be the same format, as that of the Sequence in which it will be used. Otherwise you will encounter an insertion error.

  5. The "Create in" field will display the name of the DocumentBin in which the CG scene will be created. To change the location, browse for the desired DocumentBin by pressing the "Browse…​" button.

  6. Having assigned all the parameters, press "OK". The "Titler" window appears:

    cinegy_type_interface
  7. Now you can start working with your new scene.

    Important
    Refer to the Cinegy Type Manual for details on how to work with the Cinegy Type application.
  8. To save the changes made in the CG scene, press the "Active" button again. Your changed titler will be saved in the defined DocumentBin.

Adding CG Scene into Sequence

To add the CG scene to the Sequence, open the DocumentBin containing the CG scene(s) and drag-and-drop the desired scene to Timeline. It will be added to the video track you select on Timeline.

CG Scene Editing on Timeline

The Cinegy Type templates added to the Timeline project can be edited directly from Timeline. This will not affect the original Cinegy Type object in the DocumentBin.

To do this, double-click the CG scene on the corresponding track on Timeline. The full featured Cinegy Type editor will be launched allowing you to modify any parameter of your Cinegy Type template according to your needs.

Important
Refer to the Cinegy Type Manual for details on how to work with the Cinegy Type application.

However, if you do not have corresponding rights for Cinegy Type templates editing, the Cinegy Type variables editor will open.

Important
Refer to the Permissions and Security article in the Cinegy Enterprise Manager Manual to learn how to assign rights to user roles.

The "Titler" dialog appears:

titler_browse_dialog

The added CG template will be displayed in the "Preview" window. You can view any frame of the template by dragging the time slider or using the playback buttons.

Cinegy_Type_first_frame
Cinegy_Type_last_frame

The "arrow" buttons jump to the first and last frame respectively.

Cinegy_Type_play
Cinegy_Type_pause

The "Play/Pause" button toggles the playback mode.

The "Template parameters" table shows the variables of the CG template. You can edit the value of each variable by double-clicking in the "Value" field and entering new value via the keyboard.

Important
The template parameters are only displayed when the "Export" checkbox is ticked off for the respective variable in the "Variable" tab of the Cinegy Type tool. Refer to the Variables section in the Cinegy Type Manual for detailed information on how to create CG template variables and enable them for export.
