Backdrop tool

Backdrops are images or animations that can be displayed behind the rest of the media on the stage, providing a visual background, or scenery, for your cyberformance. The image will fill the background area of the stage.

Note that audience members may have different sized browser windows, so they may have space at the sides of the backdrop. You can change the background colour of the stage in the Settings tool, to match it to your backdrops.

Place a backdrop

Click on the Backdrop tool in the left-hand toolbar, and an overlay will appear on the top of the Stage. Thumbnails of all the Backdrops assigned to this Stage are displayed. Click on the one you want and it appear on the Stage.

Change Backdrop opacity

Right click on the background thumbnail in the overlay at the top of the stage. The opacity slider appears. Slide it to the left to fade the backdrop out. Slide it to the right to fade it back in again.

Remove a Backdrop

Click on the Backdrop tool, and the overlay appears on the top of the Stage. Click on another Backdrop thumbnail and it will replace the backdrop previously shown. Click on the "Clear" icon to remove the backdrop from the Stage.
