The Director Sections are a very helpful way of organizing your cutscenes into manageable time sections (scenes) of the story told within the cutscene, like for example “Intro”, “Fred is Driving”, “Car Crash”, “Hospital” and so on, which come in handy especially in long cutscenes. Apart from organization purposes in the editor, it is also possible to exclusively play a specific section of a cutscene in runtime or make the cutscene skip to the next section.
To create a section, simply right-click on the top section of the Director Group within the timeline.
By default, when you move a section, only that section is moved. However, if you hold down the “Shift” key while moving a section, all sections and clips after that section time will be moved along just like illustrated below. This can help organize the cutscene clips or insert some time/space before some clips.
You can insert another section anywhere by right-clicking again at the time you want to insert the new section. Right-clicking on a Section also allows you to open up and edit its settings.
Finally, you can focus on a section by double-clicking it, to quickly make the cutscene view time match the section’s time.
For playing a section in runtime please take a look at the Scripting section of the documentation.
