Safe zones for the background loop
----------------------------------
For obvious reasons, the background loop gets completely masked by the
composited videos. This means that special care should be taken to ensure that
the content of the background loop is visible at all times, or that the content
gets blocked completely in one of the compositing modes, while being displayed
completely in the other.
To help the process of creating a background loop, the following svg file
contains the following layers, from bottom to top:
- A background checkerboard for size reference;
- Screen captures for both of the composite modes that show the background;
- Safe zones that are either always visible, or only visible in one of the
composite modes;
- Solid blocks mimicking both composite modes, to double check that your
background looks sensible.
The background loop is only partially visible most of the time. When a source is
displayed at full screen, the background loop is hidden. However, when either of
the side-by-side modes are selected, the space not used in by the main video
sources shows the background loop. This means that special care should be taken
to ensure that elements in the background loop are placed correctly. The visible
sections are commonly known as safe zones.
The following template shows which areas of the background loop are visible in
various modes. A background checkerboard is provided for size reference.
- The upper-right and lower-left areas of the loop are always visible.
- Additionally, in Side-by-Side Equals, the top and bottom of the loop are visible.
- In Side-by-Side Preview, a larger portion of the right-hand side of the loop
is visible.

You can download the svg to use as a template, playing with the layer visibility
settings to check whether the background has a sensible rendering.

As a background, we suggest a solid color or a light gradient (matching the
conference theme), and adding a logo and/or some text (e.g. dates) in the
"visible in both composite modes" zones only. If that doesn't suit you, you can
try having redundant content in the "side-by-side equals-only" and "side-by-side
preview-only" zones, but this usually looks worse than just static content.
