This section is also the only one displayed in the Side Panel while in Perform Mode.
Below the Scene Grid, you can also find the Interactive Controls for the current scene. But let´s go step by step:
The Scene Grid
The Scene Grid depicts 8x8 Slots. In each slot you can place one Scene. At the top there is a bigger slot for the Watermark Scene.
- Slots with an assigned Scene have a Green background color.
- The current scene is highlighted with a Yellow background.
- The Scene Grid is also displayed at all times in the MIDI PAD, if connected.
The Scene Grid
You can just click on an empty slot to Create a new Scene, or click on a Scene slot to change to that scene.
The Current Scene Controls
The Current Scene Controls groups controls relevant to the playback of the current scene.
The Scene Controls are grouped in 3 categories:
- Interactive Elements in Scene, that contains the controls for interactive elements in the Scene, if any. If there are not, this card will not be displayed.
- MIDI Mappings in Watermark, that contains buttons and sliders for all the MIDI mappings of objects in the Watermark Scene. If objects in the watermark scene do not have any MIDI Mappings, this card will not be displayed.
- MIDI Mappings in Scene, that contains buttons and sliders for all the MIDI mappings of objects in the Current Scene. If objects in the Current Scene do not have any MIDI Mappings, this card will not be displayed.
If there are no interactive elements or MIDI mappings defined, the message "No interactive Elements on this scene" will be displayed.
