You can use either a solid color or traditional color bars. If you select Solid Color, you can either type in the hex code or click on the # button to select a color.


You can also choose whether or not to include a test tone as your audio source by checking the box next to Test Tone. You can also adjust the pitch of the tone below (default is 1000 Hz; a lower number will be a lower pitch, and a higher number creates a higher pitch).
