Conditional sequences and themes

Question

Hi Ragna, back here Smile
Grats with the new site
I saw you made progress with cinemavision
especially on the conditional sequences

I want this so i tried it
however
i want sequences for christmas, halloween, summer, etc etc
even 2d and 3d
does this mean i need to make 2 sequences (2d and 3d) for christmas, 2 for halloween etc... right?

then cause those bumpers shouldnt use the bumpers the normal bumpers (when date is no holiday) i have to make special folders right?



whats the service addon for? doesnt cinemavision update content already?

 

Other thing

I think you should consider about themes

Now you could have themes for conditional sequences for ex for christmas, halloween, easter, summer, and everything else
But within those themes , you should be able to use more than one theme so it sticks to the themes

For example for i christmas i have theme 1 and theme 2 and 3
If i make the sequence i point to theme christmas as conditonal sequences
But then cinemavision should auto chose random between christmas theme 1 and 2 and 3 but always stick to the same theme when playing videos
i hope im clear

Now thats not possible
but we are getting close !

Thanks! I'd suggest creating a 2D and 3D Sequence for each holiday and set the date condition either to the holiday, or a range of dates around the holiday. You don't necessarily need to make special directories for holiday content, though you can if it makes it easier for you. Just make sure that the Modules in your Sequence point to the content you want to display.

CinemaVision allows you to manually update your content out of the box, but we needed to create the CinemaVision Service add-on to make that task happen automatically. In the future, the CinemaVision Service add-on will also allow you to schedule starting your Sequence, among other things.

When you say themes, what elements of the interface would be good to theme? We've actually completely redesigned the CinemaVision interfaces and are working on coding that in. You'll be able to use custom icons in the Sequence Editor, and pick custom colors. If you're not talking about the interface, are you talking about having different themes for content that can be randomly selected? That's something that's been mentioned before, and is on our radar , but we haven't yet put time into that feature.

No, i dont mean the interface

Yes i mean themes for content

 

for ex i have a theme  "christmas 1" , which contains video bumpers (intro in, intro out, intermission, etc etc)

Then i have a theme "christmas 2" which also contains video bumpers (intro in , intro out ....)

Then theme 3 etc...

 

Now i want those themes random as conditional sequence...

So i point to Parent directory "christmas themes", then cinemavision should random pick a theme between christmas 1 and christmas 2 and 3 ...

However, it should always stick to the subtheme !!!!!!!! for all bumpers

 

It should not pick the intro in from christmas 1 and then the intro out from christmas 2 you understand?

it should pick the inro in and intro out from christmas 1

Ragnarok?

Hey! Sorry, I thought I'd replied. While this isn't a feature in the current build, it is on our list. Great suggestion!

Coo! Can you inform me when its programmed?

Will do, but I don't have an estimate for when that might be. We have about 160 features to get through in total.
