4.2 User Interface: Toolbar

1. Text: Different text components, static or dynamic.

2. Shapes: Basic shapes.

3. Image: Select from different types of image components.

4. Movie: Places a movie or a just:out engine output placeholder into the workbench.

5. Date/Time: Used to place clock or date components into the workbench.

6. Extras: Contains uncategorized components.

1. Backward (Shortcut: ⌘ + minus): Moves the selected component one step into the background.

2. Forward (Shortcut: ⌘ + plus): Moves the selected component one step into the foreground.

3. Align: Allows you to align and distribute selected components.

1. Poster Frame: Sets the currently visible workbench frame as the poster frame of the composition (i.e. thumbnail).

2. Stop Frame (Shortcut: ⌘ + K): One or several stop frames can be set to temporarily pause a composition. Stop frames are interpreted differently in just:play and just:live. In just:play, the 'hold'-duration of a stop frame is proportional to the length of the duration which is set in the inspector of just:play. In just:live, a trigger has to be received by the composition to continue. Otherwise it will be held infinitely (which may be useful for a cornerlogo graphic, for example).

3. Play (Shortcut: space): Plays back the timeline/composition. Please note: To have a frame-accurate preview, please use the "Preview" button which is located in the upper right of the toolbar.

1. Library (Shortcut: ⌘ + L): Opens up the library which lists your assets.

2. Inspector (Shortcut: ⌘ + I): Shows the inspector which allows you to modify attributes of a selected component.

3. Preview (Shortcut: ⌘ + R): Watch a real-time rendered preview of your composition. Press '⌘ + F' to enter or leave full screen mode.

Detailed info on each component can be found in the Component Reference.
