When photos are displayed in the Cinema window, the photo mavigation bar is displayed to help navigate through the photo collection. Each photo is displayed as a thumbnail icon, laid out horizontally according to the filename numbering.
The photo that is currently displayed in the Cinema window is shown with a white border around its thumbnail (1). The current photo is always shown in the centre of the Photo Navigation bar.
RAM cache indicator
The Cinema will cache photos in RAM in order to improve navigation and interaction speed. Photos that are cached in RAM are displayed with a green line at the bottom of their thumbnail (2). Photos not in the RAM cache do not have a green line (2). Each photo is automatically stored in the RAM cache when it is selected by clicking on the thumbnail with the left mouse button.
The size of the RAM cache can be adjusted in the Preferences window.
As photos are processed by some nodes, additional indicators may appear as coloured squares in the corner of each thumbnail (4). These indicators can show useful information such as which photos have been processed (or not), and are described in each node's documentation where appropriate.
Click with th left mouse button on a thumbnail to display that photo in the Cinema window.
Click and drag with the right mouse button to pan the Photo Navigation bar.
