There's a nice little work around for combining surfaces in MadMapper, but here's what I'm trying to do and I'm looking for some ideas:
We have about 10 static "activations" in our office, and I'd really like to combine those into fewer computers just to make management easier. Each "activation" is 1x headless 1x display. Content is either completely static (1 video clip) or goes through a MadMapper cue session. If I want to combine a bunch of those is there a way to keep the different surfaces separate so I'm not auto-continuing the fully static surfaces vs the cue'd surfaces?
You can use a bunch of cue scheduler modules, specifying the target with "Start Cues in Range" and choose a different row for each module. At the bottom of the scheduler there's a "Go next now" button to trigger next cue manually.
mmm ... I don;'t think it will solve the problem.
For me, an ideal solution would be to set "cues post actions" , like in ableton live,
where you can decide which cue to start/play next next at the end (or after reaching the movie's end) of a currently playing cue.
that way, columns would be de-synchronized ...
Unless you can have multiple row going independently from each other?
A cue scheduler can completely replace the "auto-play" except that there can be multiple ones operating on different rows.
The only issue is you cannot use "switch when movie reaches loop end" in this situation
