The Firebox provides controls to instantly replace the current cue with a logo or other cue, immediately stop all playback, and control media playback. In the default workspace, the Firebox is located on the top right side of the Control Screen.

It contains three sections, Quick Cues, a panic button, and media controls.

To play the cue assigned to the Quick Cue, click the corresponding button or press F4, F5, or F6 respectively. The Inherit Background Quick Cue inherits the background of the last cue fired removing all Main Object and other Objects except the background.

To edit the cue assigned to any of the Quick Cue buttons, follow these steps:

  1. In the Quick Cues section, right click the cue you want to edit.
  2. Click Edit Cue.
  3. Edit the cue in the Inline Editor.
  4. (Optional) To edit the cue for Stage view, click Edit Stage.
  5. When finished editing, click Go to Script. To cancel editing without saving changes, click Cancel Edit.

Clearing the Main Text


The Firebox contains a button for clearing the Main Text. To immediately clear the Main Text and display only the background and all other objects to the audience, click Clear Main.


Stopping playback


The Firebox contains a panic button for stopping playback. To immediately stop all media playback and display a black screen to the audience, click Stop All or press F8.


Media Controls


The Firebox contains controls for audio and video playback: pause, stop, volume, and time tracking. The name of the media file playing is displayed above the controls. If you are playing a cue with multiple media files, you can view the time code of a different file by clicking the current file name then selecting another file from the list.
