Setting the Timing of a Test Clip
Before inserting clip elements into a test clip, the timing type can be set from the
lower panel of the CloudTest Test Clip Editor. Click on
Properties in the lower
panel. Click on
panel. You will then be able to change the test clip timing type from the drop
down menu. Options are
- Sequenced – Each clip element is executed immediately after the preceding clip element is finished.
- Manually timed – Each clip element is executed at the time specified in the CloudTest Clip Editor.
- Evenly timed – Each clip element is executed with the same interval between them. Stretching/shrinking the test clip in the test composition will affect the interval.
For an existing test clip, the timing can also be changed using the
Change Timing Type
command on the Etc. (...) button menu in the Clip Editor. The picture on the right shows this drop-down menu when no clip elements are selected. If clip element(s) are selected more commands will appear (Change Timing Type will be at the bottom).
Whenever the Change Timing Type command is invoked or Change is clicked for timing type, the Change Timing Type dialog box appears. Click the new selection and click OK to change timing or click Cancel to leave test clip timing the same.
