Raising the lights during credits

Question

So I've been playing with the Hue integration and have most of my actions setup how I want them, need to play with brightness a little still though.   However I'm wondering if there is a way to raise the lights while the credits are rolling?  Much like how in a regular movie house the lights start to come up at the start of the credits.

 

I don't know the kodi database but it doesn't have a credit timestamp that could trigger a cinema vision action does it? or maybe there is a cinema vision text file I need to place in each movie directory to say "credits start at this time".   Is credit timestamps even something TMDB has on hand to avoid having to generate extra files?

 

Anyways something for future development if not

True story, this is already on the list. We were trying to figure out how to crack it a while back. The issue is that we can't control the media people use, so we're not sure when credits roll. We thought about using the last chapter as a marker for this behavior, but wanted to find a way to make that more accessible to people who didn't rip their movies with chapters intact. The Kodi database doesn't have a timestamp for credits rolling, but there might be some external source that we could use or something. That's definitely on our list to look at for this development round.

Anything new about this request? Would like to have something like this, too.
I would be happy even if I have to write in the time for the credits manually.

I use tagging in the .nfo files of a lot my movies to run conditional sequences.  I'm wondering it it's possible to add a "runtime" tag and have the sequence turn the lights on once that time is hit.  You can set the "runtime" tag as the time until the credits start rolling so it knows how long to keep the lights off and when to turn them on.  This would obviously have to be manually configured per movie, but I really can't think of any automatic way to do it as every movie is different.

I don’t use nfo files at all but I wouldn’t be opposed to one single file like a CinemaVision database file that I could put the time stamp myself in of when the lights come up

a single file over multiple files would be great

I don’t know What’s accessible within the kodi ecosystem but I’m thinking the CV plugin could read the kodi database reference each movie and in its own database each movie would have a time at which the user could set for the lights to come up on.  Saves me from having to create over 200+ nfo files

I didn't even think about people not using .nfo files.  My .nfo files are created automatically when I use tiny media manager to download my art.

How are using .nfo files to run your sequences if you don't mind me asking? And I also have been waiting to have this feature implemented into CV as well. Any suggestions?

I have three conditional sequences in my setup.  One for IMAX, one for Atmos and one for DTS:X.  All three use tags as conditions.  The tags are listed in the .nfo files.  As far as turning the lights on during the credits, I think that's still in the works.

The idea with tags in the nfo files sounds good for now, it would be at least a opportunity to make it run until someone has a better idea.

According to the below topic, it would seem they are looking at maybe using chapter information to implement actions during playback.  I would rather edit .nfo files than go back and edit my media or re-rip my library with chapters intact, but we'll have to see what they do about it in future releases.
