Yes, that is a good idea.
Can anyone advise whether I am better to press stop before pressing play on an auxiliary timeline triggering video?...
Unlike the main timeline, which has no stop state,
Auxiliary timelines have three states - Stop, Pause, and Play.
Stop is a dormant state, no media is pre-loaded.
Pause is an active state, pre-loading media for immediate response.
Play is an active state (obviously) and acts like a timeline play.
As JJ notes, going directly from Stop to Play on an Auxiliary timeline takes some time to load up.
So yes, pressing stop before pressing play will toggle the Auxiliary timeline to pause,
essentially pre-cuing the timeline for more immediate response to Play.
(When both Stop and Play buttons in the task window are not highlighted, the aux timeline is in pause).
