Scenes and Takes feature

The Scenes and Takes feature is available on web viewer for video content that contains chapter information which provides additional detail and control during playback. If chapter information is available on the item, a clapperboard icon will render on the bottom menu. Productions can enable chapter information when exporting videos prior to uploading to Airship.  Currently, chapter selections and marks added by a user are only honored for that particular browser and session.
