Quick overview of tools

Once you have created a stage, uploaded media and assigned it to your stage, you will want to start creating your performance. When you are logged in and have player access to a stage (either you created it, or the stage owner gave you access), you will see tools on the live stage that are not visible to the audience. These tools allow you to manipulate the media assigned to the stage, in real time, to present your performance to the audience.

When you enter a stage as a logged in player, you will see a tool bar on the left and normally the chat window on the right (unless this has been disabled or hidden by a player). Here you will find the media you have assigned to this stage (as backdrops, avatars, props, audio and streams) as well as tools for real-time features (drawing, text and streams), stage management tools (settings, curtain and scenes) and the player chat.

In the top right-hand corner is the UpStage logo, and indicator that shows if the stage is live or connecting, and a counter displaying the number of players and audience currently on the stage.

Tool bar

The left-hand tool bar gives you access to the following tools:

  • Backdrops: images that can be displayed as a backdrop to the stage action
  • Avatars: images and animations that can be moved around the stage and can speak with text2speech voices
  • Props: images that can be moved around the stage and attached to avatars
  • Audio: audio files that can be played
  • Streams: pre-recorded video and live audio-visual streams that are either pre-assigned to the stage, or if the stage is set to auto-detect streams, they can be sent spontaneously
  • Draw: draw in real time directly on the stage
  • Text: write in real time directly on the stage
  • Settings: hide or expose the chat window, clear text from the chat window, change the background colour of the stage
  • Curtain: close a curtain over the stage while you make a scene change
  • Depth: manage the depth positions of media on the stage
  • Player chat: chat privately with your cast and crew, without the audience seeing it
  • Scenes: save arrangements of media to begin a scene with a single click

Each time you click on a tool, another overlay is displayed to make the associated media available.

To hide the overlay, click again on the tool or change the tool to display the next overlay.

All of these tools are explained in detail in the following chapters.
