An overlay panel contains a set of buttons for controlling the use of graphics objects.

Overlay on button

Press this button to enable the graphics objects display over the output video.

Overlay off button

Press this button to disable the graphics objects display over the output video.

Pin button

Press the "Pin" button for the overlay to be displayed while any input channel is played on the output. If this button is not pressed, the overlay will be shown only with the currently played video item.

The buttons of a separate overlay are semi-transparent. They become completely visible only with the mouse pointer hovered over them. When pressed, all the buttons turn yellow.

To display the overlay on the preview screen, simply click it once. Click it again to disable the display on the preview screen.

The color frames of each overlay indicate the way they are currently being used:

Cinegy_Live_overlay_colors

It is possible to use drag-and-drop to enable the overlay display in the preview or the output screens. The color of its frame will be changed correspondingly.

To add a new overlay, select the "Add Overlay…​" command from the overlay panel context menu:

add_overlay_command

The "Overlay Settings" dialog appears in which the overlay can be configured.

Important
Refer to the Overlay Configuration section for more details.

To remove an existing overlay, select the "Remove" command from the overlay panel context menu:

remove_overlay_command

To duplicate the selected overlay, use its "Clone" context menu command:

clone_overlay_command

The duplicated overlay will be placed after all the existing ones.

Note
The newly created overlay will preserve the configuration of the duplicated one.
