 Status Column: Displays the status of items (see next chapter).

 Poster Column: Poster frames of items. The poster frame is generated from the movie/item automatically and can be changed in the library before it is added to the rundown. Once it is part of the rundown, the poster frame can not be changed anymore for this particular item.

 Color Column

An item may have a color defined by selecting it in the inspector. The color for each item is also shown in a column in the workbench (if this column is enabled). When dragging and dropping items from the library, the "Finder" color (if defined) will automatically be set for the item and shown in the workbench.

 Aspect Column: This column shows the original aspect ratio of the movie with a color code:

  • Yellow: Aspect ratio has been corrected to match the engine's aspect ratio.
  • White: The aspect ratio of the movie and the engine is the same.
  • Red: Aspect ratio has been changed and does not match the engine's aspect ratio anymore.

 Dimensions Column: Shows the pixel size of the element (how it will be shown on screen).

 Codec Column: Here you can see the codec of the movie with a color code which indicates the selected field order.

  • White: Field order matches your engine's field order.

  • Yellow: Field order has been changed automatically by just:play to match the engine's field order.

  • Red: Field order has been changed manually by the operator but does not match the engine's field order anymore.


 FPS Column: Shows the frames per second of a movie. Only movies with a frame rate which matches the engine's frame rate can be dropped into the rundown. Movies with another frame rate will be rejected when being dropped into the workbench.

 Audio Channels: This column shows the number of audio channels of a movie.
