Overview mode

The overview mode is a special video mode used to display multiple images of the video at the same time. This type of display is also called a “kinogram”. It can be used to create a single-image summary of the whole video sequence.

To enter the overview mode, use the menu Video ‣ Overview.


The overview mode is only enabled when the entire working zone is cached in memory. To change the amount of memory used for the cache go to Options ‣ Preferences ‣ Playback ‣ Memory.

When the Overview mode is active the main image viewport displays a collection of frames taken from the video at regular intervals. The playback controls are disabled.


To control the number of images displayed use the mouse wheel. The display can be set between 2x2 and 10x10 images.

To quit the Overview mode, use the close button in the top-right corner of the playback screen.
