Show player in Moncha

10 years 6 months ago #252 by DixiScan
Because I'm using Moncha most of the time as Live player, I'm not realy familiar with the Show player right now. 8)

I have a few questions about it:

1.
To make shows it would very useful to see the actual position at the timeline. So, is it possible to visualize the red thin preview line during playback? For example, the preview line is in the centre of the timeline and the tracks "are moving under" this preview line. (Line is standing still and the tracks are moving) Or Tracks are standing still and preview is moving.

2.
At the right side of the the show area we see the 'scale' of the timeline in seconds. Is there room on the timeline to add the some seconds near the 'long hairs'? For example, at 10, 20,30, 40, .... seconds from beginning. This will give a better overview during programming.


Grz,
Vince

1. The reason we have it disabled in Fiesta is because it took too much processor time. And I'm not sure, it will be better with Moncha. But will think about, I know, it is a good for a better orientation.
2. Yes, this is good idea.

Right now our development is Fiesta - oriented, because we have upcoming exhibition in Frankfurt and we have quite big enhancement for this software.

Is there a possibility to improve the idea and draw some time information near the time lines? Currently there is like each second with longer line depending on level of zoom but if you zoom out it's hard to count what time is in what position in the timeline. It could adapt to the level of zoom and draw only some key time info, like when zoomed to 10s there would be 0:01, 0:02... (each second) and with zoom to 30s perhaps to 0:05, 0:10... (each 5 seconds) or so. Not very dense, just for orientation.

You can see the current time when you drag the red line but this would give you a quick overview on where in the timeline you are.

Also is there a possibility to add a feature to Copy/Paste scenes in show editor? Like i create a sequence of scenes synchronized to melody for let's say 16 beats but after that i have to do the sync all over again manually, if i could just copy the scenes and paste them at the startpoint of next 16 beats that would save a lot of work. Same goes for cloning of scenes, you have to drag them to the timeline each time but if i just could insert one and then copy paste it that would be quicker.

Yes, of course it is possible. Please check the Edit menu in Moncha. You can copy/paste scenes between the banks and you can also copy/paste events in show.
