Video Files


Video files can be played as a Background File from their own cues or from the Other Objects layer of a cue.


Inserting a video file as a cue


To insert a Video as a cue, browse to the file on your computer, then drag it to a location in the Script Area. You can also insert a blank cue and add videos from live feeds or DVDs as backgrounds by selecting the Change BG Icon in the Ribbon.


Using a video as an Other Object


When you insert a video object, the video is inserted into the Other Objects layer above the background. So other objects (such as text, Lyrics, Bible passages, etc.) can be layered over the top of it.

To add a video as an Other Object on an existing cue, follow these steps:

  1. Open the cue in the Inline Editor.
  2. On the Home tab, click Insert Object > Video > File.
  3. Browse to the file, then click Open.
