Role required: Customer Admin, Channel Admin or Pro. See LivingLens user roles.
A showreel is an insight film comprised of clips from media in a LivingLens channel. Each channel has a showreel editor to adjust the order of clips, add text overlay, and generate a downloadable .MP4 file of the showreel.
Use showreels to bring key themes, attitudes and behaviors to life using the voice of the consumer as captured in channel media.
Determine which clips are in a showreel at the time of clip creation. Clips cannot be moved from one showreel to another. For more information, see Making a clip.
Every showreel has an owner. This is typically the user that creates the showreel. The showreel owner can add clips to the showreel and edit it. Transfer ownership to another channel user to pass on editing capability.
The Showreels screen lists all showreels in a channel. By default, a user's showreels are displayed in chronological order with the most recently created or modified showreel listed first. Use the Owner menu to toggle between a list of your showreels and all users' showreels in the channel.
