Slices vs. surfaces
I've looked everywhere, but have not found a good explanation of the difference, or advantages of slices vs. surfaces. Anyone?
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
. In to words, surfaces are usefull if you want to project video on the same part of a stage without redoing the mapping.
