Preview Window

AniComp and Ardour Session Screenshot

The preview window within AniComp allows an author to playback the current Animatic. This preview receives its timing data directly from the same audio server as the audio engine to ensure the best possible synchronization.

A preview window will display the timeline of one image track at a time, but just as AniComp will allow you to create more then one image frame timeline, it will also allow you to display multiple preview windows to preview more than one timeline at once. This is potentially quite useful if two alternate timings are available for a particular animated sequence, by allowing an animator to see side-by-side, both previews. Or, perhaps you simply want to compare two sequances against the same audio.
