Screen Text

The Screen Text interface enables real time, high speed display of the current camera and scene parameters on the output video, and provides a way to “burn in” desired metadata at the beginning of a take.

The default options are:

  • Company
  • Show
  • Scene
  • Camera
  • Lens
  • Comments

Clicking Enable causes the “burn in” text to appear on the display and on the final output, as highlighted above. Click the button again to disable the view.

When the Roll button is clicked to start a take, the Screen Text is automatically enabled for the first 48 frames of a take, and then disabled for the remainder of the take.


Color and Location

The position and color of screen text can now be adjusted.

  • The color picker sets the color of the screen text.
  • The X and Y offset set the horizontal and vertical positions of the screen text.
