Adding DVD Cue
LiveWorship v1.3 adds the ability to set a DVD clip or external video feed as a background image for a slide. Just like a video file that has been added to a slide, the DVD will begin playing when the slide is triggered to display on the second screen. DVD cues are set from a DVD Cue Manager Window that can be displayed when editing the background of a slide. If there is no text on the slide, the clip will play from beginning to end just like a stand-alone video file on a slide.
Adding a DVD Cue (as a background to a slide)
Insert a DVD into your computer. Add a new slide (or select a slide to edit) and then click on the DVD icon in the Slide Edit Panel to place a DVD cue as a background on the slide.
NOTE: If the DVD has been played before on this particular computer, you may be able to jump directly to the menu (use the menu button) or even to a previously set cue. Otherwise, you may need to view the industry required parts of a commercial DVD. This is important because if you move a presentation or LiveWorship object that has DVD cues to another computer, you may be required to re-establish the DVD cues due to the industry protections. DVD cues may not be transferrable from computer to computer or operating system to operating system due to these levels of protection that have been created by the video industry.
Pressing the fast-forward or rewind button multiple times will increase or decrease the speed.
Use the [+] button at the bottom of the panel to create a new cue. Once you have created a cue, you can use the Set buttons or type time code directly into the Start and End points. Use the Jump buttons to move the playhead in the timeline to that location. The Loop checkbox will create a cue that automatically loops on the slide. The Mute checkbox will disable the audio for the selected cue. Use the Preview button to play the selected clip in the DVD Manager window.
If you have multiple cues created, select the one to be used as the background of the slide being edited and select the Okay button.
Troubleshooting DVD Playback
Note that DVD's can be ripped to stand alone video files for more stability in playback, see Converting Video for more information.
