 +====== 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.
