Overview

Onyx Virtual Studio uses a set of predefined scene layouts suitable to represent the theme of presentation. User can configure the input streams and map to video planes in the scene. A sample configuration and layout theme supplied with current release of desktop version of the application is shown below. It is a room with hexagonal shape with a roof and floor.

The three walls shown in the picture can be used to map input video streams. These three walls are named as display1, display2 and display3. In addition, a movable plane can be made visible or hidden at runtime. This plane can be used to map a video feed from a webcam and can act as an anchor/presenter of the session. This plane is named as anchor1.
