About Scenes

Scenes are the building blocks that comprise your video. Their purpose is to deliver a message that supports the program you're creating while bringing your content to life.

Inside the SundaySky platform, you'll find a rich Scene Template library from which you can pick scenes that match your messaging needs. Once you have chosen a scene template to present or explain a topic, you can start configuring the scene placeholders with your unique content. Placeholders are populated with text, media assets, and narration. Finally, the theme you select in a brand configuration is what determines the visual packaging and animation of the scene.

All the scene templates can be used in any of your programs an unlimited number of times.

The scenes are added to the program's scene line-up, with default names of Scene 1, Scene 2, Scene 3, etc.

4.

Change the default scene names to meaningful names that reflect the topic of each scene (for example: Opening Scene, Benefits, CTA).
Meaningful names will help you to identify the scenes more quickly but more importantly, these are the names that are used for reporting and dashboard purposes as well as for the chapter menu. Note that titles in the chapter menu are limited to 50 characters.

To rename a scene:
a. Select the scene in the scene line-up.
b. In the right pane, select the current name.
c. Enter a new name and then click anywhere outside the text field to save.

The Scene Line-up

After your selections, the program and the scene line-up are populated with the scenes.
The scene line-up, at the bottom of the page, provides you with a global overview of the video's flow. While you work on an individual scene, the thumbnails in the line-up always remain visible.

The scene line-up is also used for reordering the scenes in the program.

Scene Layouts

A layout is an alternative arrangement of an individual scene.
All the layouts of an individual scene include the same number and type of placeholders. The layouts are differentiated only by where the placeholders are positioned in the scene and by the colors that are applied in the scene.
To switch to a different layout, select the Layout tab in the right pane and then choose a new layout.

Note:

The number and types of layouts are dependent on the theme that you have defined in the program's brand configuration.
