Connect tablets to LiveEdit App

Connecting Showtime via QR Code

LiveEdit instantly generates a QR code containing both the connection information to your computer and access to the project for Cloud usage. Simply scan the QR code with Showtime, and you're all set!

Steps:

  1. Click on the Orbit icon in the sidebar to open the Orbit panel.
  2. Press the 'Share' button. A QR code will appear on your screen.
  3. Use the Showtime app on your tablet to scan the displayed QR code.
  4. Showtime will connect to your project and sync with your timeline in real-time.

Note: You can view all devices connected to your LiveEdit app in the Orbit panel.

Warning: To connect to your LiveEdit App, make sure the tablets are on the same local network—either wireless or wired—as your computer.


Can't Scan the QR Code?

If your tablet doesn't have a camera, you can use a six-digit code to connect Showtime manually.

  1. Just below the displayed QR Code, click on "Use a code instead."
  2. In the Showtime app, manually enter the provided PIN code.
  3. Additionally, enter the IP address found at the top left corner of the Orbit panel.

Note: Orbit requires a Production Plan.
