Conditions and Auto Update

Recommended Posts


If you change layer conditions in preferences, you have to do an update for the changes to take effect. Auto update does not seem to work with conditions.
If this is a feature please say so in the manual, the natural thing would be that auto-update took care of this.

This is the behavior if you change it in the preferences. Preference changes are something which works like a preparative preset for your show, not something you change during a presentation. 

You can though change the conditional layer status from outside through telnet at any time while the show is running, e.g. through a control system (WATCHNET, BLOCKS, Medialon, Universe,...). You could also send strings from a timeline to change the selection while the show is running.

Is changing the conditional layer status seamless by the way?

Not exactly. It is similar to jumping on the timeline. From the time you activate a condition, some time is required to load any active content on conditional layers before it can be displayed.
