How to test various layout spacing, border, and background settings

 

As a Greenroom Producer, you can get into a Greenroom by yourself and test different composition shots, in order to test various layout and title settings.  When you go to Design > Layouts, you’ll see “Number of presenters'' and a list of layouts from 1-8.  When you click each number, it will show the various layouts for that amount of presenters within the Canvas.  When you click on one of these box compositions, you’ll then see yourself show up within the canvas as that composition with each box feed being your camera feed.  This will allow you to see all the various box compositions that Greenroom has to offer, with your camera feed being the reference of how a presenter's framing will look.

As you’re clicking on each box composition, you can also scroll down to Layout spacing and set different pixel spacing for each box composition, in order to see how the spacing would look.  Each layout spacing setting is unique to each box composition, so you can set a layout spacing specific to a staggered two box shot, and then set a layout spacing that’s specific to a side by side two box shot.

 

You can also test the video border setting and corner rounding setting to display with the box compositions you test, but keep in mind that the video border and corner rounding setting are a universal setting, so they will be applied to any box composition and layout spacing combo that you set.

You can also preview your Greenroom shots as you pre-build your show within the Showboard, which is set below the canvas in the Showbuilder.  The Showboard allows you to create your Greenroom shots in advance, giving you the selection of layouts to choose from.  You can also filter the layouts based on the number of Presenters you need for the shot and the type of content you're presenting.

If you turn on visibility toggle for Titles within the Shot Tab or right below the canvas, you can test the various lower third templates that Greenroom offers and change the colors and styles of them.  When you select a different box composition shot, it will bring up the lower third that you have set, and if you’ve also set an animation and timing for that lower third, it will reflect that as well.

Finally you can also set a Wallpaper and Background within Layouts to test with your shots as well.  Wallpaper can be set to a color (using color bar or Hex code), or an image that you upload to it.  We recommend that you upload an image that has a 16:9 format or 1920 x 1080 size, so it can scale properly to the canvas.  To test it, you’ll want to set the wallpaper and save the changes, then make sure no video feeds or media are in the canvas, then when you save the shot you’ll then see the Wallpaper within the canvas.

Background can be set to a color (using color bar or Hex code), or an image that you upload to it.  We also recommend that you upload an image that has a 16:9 format or 1920 x 1080 size, so it can scale properly to the canvas.  To test it, you’ll want to set the background and save the changes, then click any video compositions in layout and reference the canvas to see it.

 

If you test these settings within the Greenroom you’ll be using for your event, these settings will be saved and when you come back into the same Greenroom with your presenters, you will see the same settings reflected in the actual presenter shots you compose.
