Hiya Timeboy, good to hear from you again!
-UNDO - haha yes, I know what you're going to say already.
Good, so I don't have to say it then
-launching clip based on SMPTE timecode - would this be difficult to implement?
Difficult not so much, but it's not in line with the current SMPTE implementation.
Right now, SMPTE is meant to allow to sync up one specific clip to a specific external audio source at a specific time. For instance at a showmoment when the next DJ intro starts. The whole FOH gets a cue, and SMPTE is started from a central point to audio, video, light, pyro and fx.
We're definitely going to enable SMPTE triggering in the future, but it's going to be part of a bigger set of timeline features which will allow for a lot more scripted show versatility.
For now, most crews solve SMPTE triggering by having a simple chat window open with the DJ where they hear what song is coming up. It's all about communication
-auto launch next clip at end of current clip (incorporated with transition sliders)
Right click on the clip > Autopilot > Play next clip.
-separate clip start and loop points (like Ableton)
I think this is somewhere in the feature bucket. Let's see a rain of +1s for this first though...
-bug fix: when grabbing/adjusting playhead, it snaps to loop handles. Very frustrating.
Not so much a bug, but maybe unexpected behaviour. When you grab the playhead above the loop handle division, it will snap to the playhead. When you grab below the playhead, it will snap to the loop points. Try moving your mouse up and down in the playhead area, and you'll see the GUI item light up where it will snap to.
-bug fix: composition effects don't work when routing layers to slices - is this a bug or intrinsic?
Intrinsic. Composition effects are applied on the composition. Layers are routed to slices before they go to the composition. Maybe you can use effect clips instead?
-APC and Launchpad support, midi feedback - seriously this needs to happen. Just give us support for a few controllers. Like the most popular ones (apc, launchpad, livid). PLEASE!
Yeah, I know. I'm probably the biggest supporter of this in the office (even though I don't really see the need for it, but I understand how much it is wanted by you guys ). So every monday I hassle Edwin about this. I'll get him to cave sooner or later.
-Keystroke-click Column Trigger button launches new column but still plays currently playing clips
You want what to the who now?
-midi-mappable button that cycles through currently playing clips
Currently you can do this with the up and down arrows. These will be midi mappable in the future.
-zoom in/out in Advanced Output- obviously this is on the list of to-do's
