Welcome back to the third chapter of the Webcaster manual. We hope the previous two chapter have shed some light on the basic functionalities of this podcasting app. In the previous chapter we showed you the three types of events available on the app, events that can be added to the main grid. Read, Webcaster – Editing event elements and find out how easy it is to change your recording, tracks or files directly from the arranger.
Editing an event
Every event that has been added to the grid can be edited. Long tap the event you want to modify and a new window will open up.
- Accept – saves the made modifications
- Cancel – annuls the made modifications>/li>
- Delete – the event is removed
- Reset – annuls all the made modifications but you will remain on the current window and can start making new modifications
- Attach URL – opens up a browser window inside Webcaster where you can search for a specific URL and attach the URL to the event. This will automatically be added on the front end of the app, allowing the automatic opening of this webpage when the event comes into action (e.g. weather page)
- Attach file – works similarly to attach URL the difference being that you can attach a document directly from Dropbox.
- Editing mode – is applicable only for recorded audio and allows the cropping of the sound. The cropping markers will appear if you tap on this, allowing you to adjust the start and end. Tap cut to remove the selected section.
- Build waveform or hide/show waveform – allows the generation of the song’s waveform in case it has not been generated before, but also enables or disables its visibility.
- Cue in and out points – by tapping on the icons or moving the markers you can modify the cue in and out point of the track/recording.
- Event clock – is located between the cue in and cue out points shows the length of the event.
- You can add as many markers as you wish, each of them having a fade in and fade out function (adjustment of the volume). All markers will be visible on the front end and each marker can be named.
- Global volume control – next to the add marker icon, you have the volume control for the entire event. Default for volume is 80%.
- Pause and play buttons – you can pre-listen to the changes made to the event.
