Intro Overlay

The Intro Overlay is a module that allows you to provide information for users at the beginning of a training scene.


With this module you have the possibility to provide the user with explanations, instructions for action or similar.


In the Side Panel you can add content to be displayed. With the content pulldown you determine what kind of content should be displayed:


  • Description Scene: Displays the title and description of the scene.
  • Description Training: Displays the title and description of the training.
  • Image: Links an image asset, which is then displayed in the overlay.
  • Text: Displays the text you enter in the text box.
  • Video: Links to a video asset, which is then displayed in the overlay.

You can add multiple contents. These are then displayed page by page in the training and the overlay only closes when all content has been seen.


Overlay-Content-Description-Training     Overlay-Content-Description-Scene

Overlay-Content-Text     Overlay-Content-Image-handwriting

Clicking Okay closes the overlay and triggers When Deactivated.

Clicking Repeat repeats the intro (only displayed if there is more than one content).

Of course, you can use the intro overlay not only at the beginning of a scene, but also later. To do this, deactivate the Active When Scene Loaded checkbox in the WMS and make the overlay visible using the Activate Module action.

You can also use this module as a global object, e.g. to display the scene description at the beginning of each scene. You only have to configure it once to display the Description Scene, and it will automatically display the description of the current scene.
