In the Host View, users with an Admin or Showcaller permission can manage the settings for their studio session and also test the live streaming by accessing the Live monitor link.
The Layout animations setting allows a smooth transition between layout changes on Stage.
If the toggle is turned off, the transition between the layouts is played without any animation and cuts directly from one layout to another.
Auto mute speakers
The Speaker's mics are automatically unmuted when they are on Stage by a scene or directly via their source, and are muted back as soon as they are removed from the Stage.
This helps in controlling any unwanted disturbances from the background of Speakers who are currently not on Stage but have joined the studio session.
It is best to keep the setting toggled off during dry runs/test sessions.
Live monitor link
The live monitor link allows a Studio user to view the live feed of the studio output on a browser.
The link can be copied and shared with a fellow Studio user as well, who would be required to log in to the Studio account, if not logged in already.
