Cues Overview

Cues Overview

MediaShout scripts are built using cues. A cue is like a programmable shortcut, telling the program what media to play, when to play it, and how it should look or sound.

A cue is made up of layers. Each layer can be edited individually in the Inline Editor. Each cue also has an editable background.

For information about working with and editing layers, see Inline Editor Basics.

Cue layers can be made up of one or more of the following:

  • Main Object (paginated)
  • Text box (non-paginated)
  • Images
  • Video
  • Audio
  • References
  • and more

Note: Paginated vs. Non-Paginated Text - A paginated text area works like Microsoft Word. When you type into the text area and get to the end of the page, a new page is automatically created. A non-paginated text area works like Microsoft PowerPoint. On a slide, when you type into the text box and get to the end, it cuts off the overflow text; it does not create a new slide.
