Slices vs. surfaces

I've looked everywhere, but have not found a good explanation of the difference, or advantages of slices vs. surfaces. Anyone?




  • Hello @Chocron

    Slices and surfaces are different concepts. 

    - Slices are used to select a sub-part of a media (and then map it). It's like a crop in photoshop.

    - Surfaces could be seen as "mapping presets" thus, if attribute a mapping to a surface, when you change the surfaces, all the mapping with this surface will be affected (and this in all boards and timelines). 

    You can find more about surfaces in this tutorial. In to words, surfaces are usefull if you want to project video on the same part of a stage without redoing the mapping.
