 +====== Presenter Layer ======
 +This layer provides a way to display another video source alongside the layers below and easily switch between fullscreen views of either. When activated, the view of the underlying layers is minimized to the corner and another definable source sweeps in from behind. The placement of the sources can be swapped. You can apply shortcut keys to the source controls.
 +This layer is similar to the [[Presenter 2D]] layer, but does not have parameters to customize the size and placement of the sources. The animation is done in a 3D perspective whereas the 2D version simply scales the sources.

 +^ Group ^ Parameter ^ Function ^
 +| Control | A--B Transition ​    | Defines the transition when switching between ''​A''​ and ''​B''​. Can be either ''​Cut''​ or ''​Dissolve''​. |
 +| :::     | Transition Duration | When Dissolve is set above, this is the time it takes to complete the fade. |
 +| :::     | Motion Detect ​      | You can have the layer automatically switch to presenter view if a change is detected in Source B. A potential use of this would be to have a slideshow as your Source B (by using a Screen Source capturing presentation software on another monitor). Any time the slide changes, your underlying layers (such as a camera on yourself) will move out of the way to show the new slide. |
 +| :::     | Display ​            | //These 3 buttons are available when Motion Detect is disabled.// Pressing ''​A''​ makes everything below the layer fullscreen (essentially a layer bypass). Pressing ''​B''​ makes the source defined below fullscreen. Pressing ''​A and B''​ shows both sources next to each other as per the parameters in the Content section below. Going between ''​A''​ and ''​B''​ follows the transition settings above. Going to or from ''​A and B''​ follows the transition settings in the section below. |
 +| :::     | Threshold ​          | //Available with Motion Detect.// Sets how sensitive the trigger is to motion in Source B. The layer preview above has an indicator of the current motion as well as the threshold. Set this so that it is not too hard to trigger, but also so that it does not trigger accidentally. |
 +| :::     | Signal ​             | //Available with Motion Detect.// Allows you to manually Show Source B. |
 +| :::     | Slides time         | //Available with Motion Detect.// Defines how long Source B should remain active after triggering it. |
 +| Content | Source B            | Select the source you want to use as Source B. If a movie is selected, the layer will enter presenter view when set to Live and disable itself when the timer ends. |
 +| :::     | Adjust Aspect Ratio | ''​Show whole image''​ will show the entire source at its original aspect ratio. ''​Crop to match''​ sets the source'​s frame to the same proportions as the document, and scales the source proportionately to fill. |
 +| :::     | Fade Out Background | If Show whole image is selected above and the source'​s aspect ratio doesn'​t match that of the document, this option will fade the layer'​s background to black when Source B is set to fullscreen. |
 +| :::     | Position ​           | Sets whether Source A should be on the left of right in presenter view. |
 +| :::     | Reflection ​         | Applies a reflection effect underneath the sources. |
 +| Transition | Duration | Defines the transition time when switching to or from ''​A and B''​. This is also the transition time for toggling the layer Live. |
 +| Background | Type   | Choose from ''​Constant Color'',​ ''​Gradient Left/​Right'',​ ''​Gradient Top/​Bottom''​ or ''​Custom Image''​. |
 +| :::        | Color  | Choose a color for the background. |
 +| :::        | Image  | If Custom Image is set above, pick the image to be used for the background. The image is scaled proportionately to fill the document. |
 +| Debug | Detection Kind | If the default ''​Difference''​ does not suit your Motion Detection application,​ you may also try ''​Average''​. |
