Introduction

In the video that you create, there may be scenes that you want to show or skip depending on the audience watching. This can be configured easily using a data field and its related values. It is important to know how to work with a data library—specifically, creating data fields and values—before configuring this feature.

Following are the options for showing or skipping a scene:

a.

Showing a scene to everyone.
This is always the default option.

b.

Skipping a scene for everyone.
This is useful when you are still working on a scene and do not yet want to include it in the published video.
When you skip a scene in a video, that scene is not included in the video that you publish for your viewers.

c.

Showing a scene to a specific audience.
This is useful when you want to show a scene only to a specific audience.
For example: your viewer audience includes three membership tiers (silver, gold, platinum) and you want to show a specific scene only to gold members.

d.

Skipping a scene for a specific audience. This is useful when you don't want to show a scene to a specific audience.
For example: your viewer audience includes three age groups (Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennials) and you do not want to show a specific scene to Baby Boomers.
