Session Intro Layer

This layer cycles through 4 different “slides” and could be used to show logos, titles and other information before a show. A Background Image appears first with an animated transition. The Conference Artwork then fades in on top of this, followed by Title 1, Title 2 and End Artwork. The layer finally completes by animating the Background Image back out. Each of these portions of the sequence is given an equal amount of display time, which is affected by the Total Intro Duration parameter.

Transparency is supported in the images. They are centered and displayed without scaling so your document dimensions should be considered when designing the image.
