3-1-2. Displaying images

Under the PLAY mode, tapping a media pool slot with an image registered will load the image onto the stage. Tapping the slot again will unload the image.

You can load up to 5 images onto the stage.
Images are layered in the order they are loaded (later images on top). You cannot change the ordering of the layer.

Normally (i.e. with the motion & particle playback button ON), any motion configured for an image is immediately played back when the image is loaded. When the motion & particle playback button is OFF, the motion will remain paused at the first frame until the button is turned ON.

You can move and resize images by dragging and pinching on the stage.
(The display on the stage may seem jumpy. This is to minimize the load on the CPU. Output to the external display will be smooth.)
You cannot modify images while an associated motion is being played back.

While you are sending an output to an external display, no images are displayed on the stage. The stage displays an area of that image. (Specification to be changed from Ver 1.4.0.)
You can drag the region to move it, or pinch it to zoom in or out. This functionality works in the same way as the previous version.
If you have image motion set, only the display position and zoom will be reflected in that area.

3-1-3. Displaying texts

Texts can be displayed in the same way as images. Handling of motions is also identical.

The difference is that you can only load 1 text at a time.

While you are sending an output to an external display, no text is displayed on the stage. The stage displays an area of the text. [[[(Ver1.4.0から仕様変更)]]]
If you have text motion set, only the display position and zoom will be reflected in that area.

3-1-4. Playing particles

When the motion & particle playback button is ON, you can place particles onto the stage by first tapping on a media pool slot containing a particle, and then tapping or dragging on the stage.

When the motion & particle playback button is OFF, particles are not displayed even if you tap on the stage.

You can only use 1 particle at a time.Since particles are placed on a layer above images, you will not be able to move images by tapping and dragging while using particles. While the text layer is above the particle layer, particles can be used simultaneously with texts, as there is no capability to manipulate texts on the stage by tapping.

While you are sending an output to an external display, no [[[Particle]]]s are displayed on the stage.
This functionality works in the same way as the previous version in that you can tap on the stage to display a particle in that position.

The Music Player will automatically stop when switching between PLAY mode and EDIT mode, but can be used under both modes.

The Music Player can play tracks from your iPad’s iPod library.
Note that DRM protected tracks purchased on the iTunes Music Store cannot be played. iTunes Plus tracks are DRM-free and can be played.
