Cue Setup

Cue Setup

The Cue Setup tab is used for setting up the cue display resolution when creating or exporting cues. In most cases, the Cue Setup will match the resolutions of whatever screens you are connected to. However, in cases where you want to manually change the cue resolution to match what the final output will be (for instance, when building the script on a computer in the office that has a different output resolution than the computer in the sanctuary), Cue Setup is the way to do that.


Configuring Cue Setup settings


To configure settings in the Cue Setup tab:

  1. On the ribbon, click Settings tab > General Settings > Cue Setup.
  2. Change desired settings.
  3. Click OK.

The Cue Setup tab contains the following sections and settings:

Set each option for the Main display and the Stage display (if one is connected):

  • Display Resolution: Select the correct display resolution from the list. 
  • Aspect Ratio: the aspect ratio that is used when creating cues.
  • If the Cue Resolution doesn't match: if the cue is set to a different resolution than the display, select whether you want to scale the cue to fit or resize the cue. 
    • Scale the Cues to fit. Resize the image and keep its aspect ratio.
    • Resize the Cues. Changes the aspect ratio by stretching or squeezing the image to make it fit. Note: For text boxes, the font stays the same size but the bounding box is resized. This might cause the cue to repaginate.

See the Quick Start Guide: Setting up the displays for detailed instructions on setting up the displays.


What is Aspect Ratio?


The aspect ratio is width: height. So a 4:3 aspect ratio means the image is 4-inches wide and 3-inches tall. The two most common aspect ratios used are 4:3, standard resolution, and 16:9, wide resolution
