The drawing and annotation tools can be found in the toolbar at the lower-right of the player interface.
cineSync Play has five drawing tools - Pencil, Arrow, Circle, Square, and Text Box.
Also included in the drop-down are the Zoom tool and an Eraser.
The Pencil drawing tool is selected by default and already set once you open the session.
Simply click and drag with your mouse anywhere on the movie frame to use it. As you create drawings, they will be visible to all other participants in the review.
The annotation tools section also includes selectors for line thickness and colour.
Your drawing colour can be chosen using the colour icon which is placed next to the drawing tools.
Your drawing colour is also displayed in the Buddy List for everyone else to see. (The 'Show Buddy List' can be found and enabled in the 'Review' menu.)
Pencil line thickness, Arrow size and Eraser size can be defined using the Line Thickness menu in the 'Tools' menu, or you can increase the thickness one step at a time by pressing the ']' key or decrease the thickness by pressing the '[' key.
From the same place, you can also select 'Small', 'Medium' or 'Large' for the text box text.
The on-screen text tool is a useful addition that enables you to add text notes as annotations. It can also be easily moved around, dragging the text box, or deleted, by clicking on the cross icon.
If you need to ‘Undo’ or ‘Redo’ your annotation or drawing steps, you can use the ‘Edit’ menu or the keyboard shortcuts.
Please note: Currently, it is not possible to use any annotation tools while using the Compare mode.
