What is the Presentation Options software?
The Presentation Options software comes standard on many Casablanca Editors but was an option for the AVIO, Claro and Gymnos.
The functions can be enabled and disabled at any time by entering the Presentation Options menu, found under System Settings menu.
Presentation Options initially included the following three options:
Play with black border
This enables you to have a black border added to the extreme edge of the video upon playback live from your editor. This does not affect the video itself - and thus does not change or add the black border to the video for DVD authoring. You need to do that using the Black Border effect (Effects Pack 8) located under the Special button in the Edit Menu. Tutorial for this effect here: Using the Black Border Effect.
Auto. Power on/off
This enables you to set specific times that your Casablanca will turn on and then turn off each day. I honestly do not see a practical application for this function for most folks who edit with a Casablanca. It could be used during a trade show or expo if you were using your Casablanca in a kiosk or a booth playing back a finished video. You would also use the 'Play on startup' function listed above to have an automated, unattended playback station.
Clicking this button at the bottom of the menu returns the Presentation options settings to the factory default -- meaning it will remove all functions except the Play-Counter.
