Generation configuration

Generation Configuration are settings that determine how LivingLens creates the downloadable showreel file in the Showreel editor.

To make showreel Generation settings:

1. In the showreel editor, click Settings and select Generation to access the editor.

A screenshot of the LivingLens Showreel editor with the Generation "Publish" configuration modal window open.

2. In the Publish Configuration modal, select generation settings for the showreel including:

  • Showreel NameRequired. The showreel name input when the first clip is created. It is the Name listed on the Showreels screen. Showreel Name does not appear in the generated showreel. If applied and the showreel is published to the Media Library, it appears as the media title.
  • Generated Video Description — The showreel description. If applied and the showreel is published to the Media Library, it appears as the media description.
  • Country — The country of origin. If applied and the showreel is published to the Media Library, it appears as a Country filter.
  • Subtitles — Select to overlay subtitles on the bottom of each clip. By default, None. Options are Native (spoken word language) or English (the English translation if applicable). If all clips are in English, select either Native or English.
    Note: When Subtitles are selected, do not position text overlay on the Bottom region of a clip. Bottom region text overlaps with subtitle placement. Set text overlay to the Top or Middle region. A warning appears on every clip with text overlay set in the Bottom region.
  • Enable fade transitions between clips? — Inserts a fade to black between each clip and transition for smooth transition between showreel components. Active (purple) by default. Toggle to Inactive (grey) for no fade to black between any clips or transitions.
  • Publish to media library? — Displays the showreel as a playable video with a thumbnail in the Media Library. Inactive (grey) by default. Toggle to Active (purple) to publish the generated showreel.

3. Click Save.
