A countdown timer can be needed for a variety of purpose during live videos (usually at the beginning):
- Waiting towards a show
- Pre-cursor to the show for the audience
- Ice-breaker/audience engagement
To add value to the animation, the user can add augmented assets, such as Lottie files to the timer or make a custom timer. To add custom templates, contact Grafi.as support.
Click to Add Asset and add Timer. The user can choose from Grafias templates series and customize the Label. Duration sets the time for how long the timer will run for and a layer number can be assigned to the asset.
Size and Position
Just as in the lower third, media and Lottie, if the user is aware of position pixels with relation to the screen, they can customize it with X and Y dimensions in pixel units (after selecting custom from the drop-down menu). If the user does not prefer the default position and is unaware of position dimension with respect to screen size, contact Grafias support.
Lock or reset the ratios by clicking the lock or reset buttons:
On Complete: The user can choose what happens when a media stops playing. This enables the user to organize the rundown pattern. If no assets are selected, the rundown is stopped by default.
If Parent Controller is toggled on, the user can select either of the assets as the primary controller asset with customized time delay and other assets can function as child assets.
