 +====== News Show Layer ======
 +This layer is similar to the [[PIP]] layer and shows a scaled down source in a corner of the screen with a text box below it.
 +{{:​layer:​layer-newsshow-parameters.png?​nolink |}}
 +^ Group ^ Parameter ^ Function ^
 +| Content | Source B | This is the source to displayed by this layer. |
 +| :::     | Title    | This text will be shown below the source, on top of the background defined below. It is centered within the PIP's width and the text will wrap to new lines if needed. |
 +| Transition | Type     | Specify a transition style. ''​Push''​ transitions will be relative to the Anchor specified in the Geometry section below. |
 +| :::        | Duration | If a transition other than Cut is used, set its length. |
 +| Appearance | Font | Use the Mac font chooser to set how the text appears as well as its size. |
 +| Background | Type  | Choose the background of the text box underneath the source: ''​Constant Color'',​ ''​Gradient''​ or ''​None''​. |
 +| :::        | Color | Set the colors used for a constant color or gradient. Opacity can be set as well. |
 +| Geometry | Anchor ​          | Specify the general position of your PIP: ''​Top Left'',​ ''​Top Right'',​ ''​Bottom Left'',​ ''​Bottom Right''​ |
 +| :::      | X Inset          | Horizontal inset of your PIP from the Anchor side set above. |
 +| :::      | Y Inset          | Vertical inset of your PIP from the Anchor edge set above. |
 +| :::      | Scaling ​         | Set how the PIP source should be scaled: ''​1:​1''​ applies no scaling. ''​Max Width''​ and ''​Max Height''​ reveal the two parameters below. |
 +| :::      | Max Width/​Height | The PIP will be scaled proportionately to have a certain width or height, which is set here. |
 +| :::      | Scale Quality ​   | If your PIP is scaled you can select which algorithm you prefer. ''​Faster (Video)'':​ The scaling is done by the graphics card with linear interpolation and should be used if your source is a video source. ''​Better (Image)'':​ The scalling is done by a Lanzos algorithm and takes more processing but gives high quality results. |
