External video files, or folders containing video files – right-click in an empty cell to open the Showreel context menu and choose Open > Files or Open > Folder.

3.Click-and-drag cells to set the display order by repositioning them in the layout. (Showreel order is left to right, top to bottom.) Click the X in the upper right corner to remove a cell.

4.Use the scrolling Display for field to set the display time, in seconds (1 to 99), for each cell.

Once the Showreel is started, it can be cycled manually using the right arrow key (>) to go forward and the left arrow key (<) to go backwards. For automatic continuous cycling, check Settings > Switch on timer.
