  • Name: Set a name for the Event. This name is used for external commands or scripts.

  • Time: Set where in the time-line (in frames) the Event is placed.

  • images/download/attachments/27788743/animation_stop_tag_editor_next_prev.png Previous/Next buttons: If a Director has more than one Event click the Previous or Next button to move to the previous or next Event along the time-line.

  • Type: Defines the type of Event used:

    • Stop (1): Stop the animation until continue animation is clicked. A stop applies for the Director and all subdirectors.

    • Tag (3): Show a position along the time-line. This Event type does not stop the animation.

    • Local Stop (2): Stop the animation until continue animation is clicked. A local stop only applies for the Director it is placed on, not its subdirectors.

    • Pause (4): Stop the animation for a specified amount of frames (set in Length).

    • Next Scene (5): Mark a position where a Scene ends. The next Scene will start automatically.

      Note: Viz Weather has an automatic play list option where the user does not need to start the next Scene. The Next Scene Event starts the next Scene automatically when the current Scene reaches the Next Scene Tag.
