Pinning Behind-the-Camera Participants
Pinning within OpenReel allows your team control over who the Subject/s can see and hear from your behind-the-camera crew, including Directors, Collaborators, and Watchers. This functionality is designed to limit potential distractions to the Subject while allowing the necessary crew to be in the Session and still communicate with fellow crew members.
The Director(s) of the Session can unpin any Collaborator or Watcher so they are not visible or audible to the Subject/s in the Session. Collaborators also have the option to unpin any other Collaborator or Watcher but not the Director(s), who will always be pinned. Watchers do not have the permission to unpin any Director or Collaborators.
A blue pin means the Collaborator or Watcher is pinned (visible and audible to everyone in the room).
A white pin means they are unpinned (only visible and audible to fellow crew members).
Pinning on the Subject side also allows the crew to choose which Subject appears in the main Subject window for their unique view of the session.
Directors, Collaborators, and Watchers all have the option to view whichever Subject they would like to in the main preview window. To do so, they will click the white pin under the Subject they would like to see, and that Subject will move to the main subject window.
