Quick Look 3D Layer

This layer allows you to position a Mac Quick Look preview of a source within virtual 3D space. BoinxTV does not actually operate in a true 3D environment and the layer order still applies. Layers that are farther back on the Z axis need to be underneath closer layers to make the perspective look proper.

Group Parameter Function
Content File Path This is the source to be used by this layer. The layer reads and displays the embedded thumbnail preview from the file. If there is no embedded preview then a regular icon is shown. The layer works just like Mac OS Quick Look would, so what you see in the Finder is what BoinxTV will display.
Icon Mode This applies a centered drop shadow and slight gradient overlay to simulate the look of icons in Mac OS. Using this does not allow the use of the Smooth Border option, so it is optimal to keep the Rotation parameters set at is edges look jagged.
Smooth Border This applies antialiasing to the edges of the layer to reduce jaggedness.
Transition Type You can setup how the layer should appear when switched to live. There are two possible values: Cut (show immediately) or Dissolve (fade in).
Duration If you choose the transition to be Dissolve you have to specify the duration of the transition.
Geometry Zoom Set the scaling of the source. The source is always rendered at its original aspect ratio.
Position Shift the position of the source along the X, Y and Z axes. Values of 0 will center and place the source directly in front of the “camera”.
Rotation Rotate the source around the X, Y and Z axes.
