I love how in the "Cue System" you can sort of automate the playback of movies. It is handy for setting up installations where you want to change the content yet just let it run.
What I would like to explore is how to do these 2 things that are related to the above:
1) Drag in a folder of videos? When I try this I get a folder in the "Image Folder" group but nothing plays. I tried clicking lots of things but to no luck. Is there a way to do this properly? Dragging in a folder would be much, much, much easier then individually running them through the "Cue System" especially once the video count is say over 20.
2) Automatically scan the folder for new videos? Imagine following the suit of #1. You could drag in a folder. Then, after every restart of MM it would scan the folder and update the list. Maybe I added a new video or renamed it to play in a new order? This is some gold level stuff. I asked the folks at Resolume and they understood the question but were unable to provide a solution for Avenue/Arena. In addition they were unable to provide any API, etc that would allow me to craft my own. Maybe some weird use of a "generator" in MM would allow for this?
Both of these would be huge for the ease of use. It might even mean I can just use MM and do away with Resolume for automated systems.
Also, maybe there is a way to get at some of these asks in a different way. I am open to ideas!
Thank you very much,
