6.12 Playing An Element

There are several ways to control the playout of an element. The most common way is to load the item into the timeline and to press the play button in the workbench or the timeline after that. In case there is currently no item loaded on the particular layer, the load and play can be executed with a single keystroke using the alt-key.

In addition to loading elements into the timeline you can also double click an element in the workbench which will immediately execute the action defined in just:live's preferences. In such case the options are:

  • None
  • Load
  • Load and Cue
  • Load and Play

This function only works if there is no other element already loaded on the target layer.
