MOS Slug column for VIDEO only?

  • 1.  MOS Slug column for VIDEO only?

    Posted 15 days ago
    Hello Ross Wizards,

    In our #Inception Rundowns the MOS columns are all a mixture of both our Video and Graphics.  Is it possible to separate them?  Ideally I would have a "MOS Video Slug" and "MOS Video Duration" columns that could be printed in our rundown.  Thanks.  ​

    Hi David!

    We have several MOS columns in the #Inception RO that display MOS information- currently there's no way to separate these out into separate columns, HOWEVER, there are some manual workflows you can set up to distinguish between a story that has video, and a story that only has graphics. The best example is with custom colors for rows in the Running order. 

    Here's an example of how this might look:

    From there, as far as the duration goes, the "Media Time" column could be used (through the Media Time production cue) to distinguish media TRT within a story where packages and other pre-produced content is concerned. 

    If this is something you'd like to try, here's a video on InceptionU that can help!

    Let me know if you have any questions!
