Producer gives you access to 6 initial layers that you can add sources to. You have the ability to add, remove and rename layers.
Layer 1: We recommend you use this layer for any of your live streams or full-screen VODS. You are currently able to upload a maximum of 4 live streams by default. Please, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to increase stream and layer limits.
Layer 2: We recommend you use this layer for any other VOD sources or picture in picture sources. Anything on this layer will appear on top of layer 1.
Layer 3: We recommend using this layer for any images, animations, live integrations and web sources. This is the top layer, meaning any source you add here will appear over your previous other layers.
