Layouts are the most complex aspect of a CONFIRE SHOWTIME Project. With a layout you determine which layouts via their corresponding scenes will be displayed in a Showcase.
Layouts are defined hierarchically. At the top of the hierarchy are what's known as Master Layouts which differ from regular layouts in two ways:
They have no parent layout
They define the target resolution for themselves and their sublayouts.
The set of layouts forms a tree-like hierarchy:
Master Layout -- Layout 1 -- Layout 1.1 -- Layout 1.2 -- Layout 2 -- Layout 2.1 -- Layout 2.2 -- Layout 3 -- Layout 3.1 -- Layout 3.2
On each layout (even on a Master MasterLayout) layout elements can be placed freely. The following layout elements are available:
- Picture Element
- Text Element
- Multimedia Element
- SVG Element
- Website Element
- Panel Element
- App Element
The following aspects of the layout are described in further more detail:
