Follow Actions - it happens in the middle of the clip...why?

Post by praecox » Fri Jan 08, 2010 10:49 pm

hi,

this is the problem:

- i have set up a few clips - no warping - i want every clip to play NEXT when ends

no luck - the clips that are longer then 1 bar plays ends in the middle (or a little before their end) and plays NEXT clip... why?

maybe i missed something but can't find the solution

where is the problem?

You specify when the follow action occurs manually (1 bar, half a bar, etc)...there is no way to specify a follow action for "after clip ends" AFAIK.
So you need to make sure you have input the right time to wait until the follow action takes place.

check the lenght of your clip and then put the same time on follow action time and thats all

thnx for the quick answers to you all.

i have discover this method and it solves the problem but it's not the perfect solution.

first you have to do it manually - i work with the 85 small piano clips!!!!

second,when the clip is not warped you can't specify the same point - it should be possible in seconds or samples (you can do this only in beats, bars 16ths...)

i have spent an hour chceking the approx. points and write it down in follow actions window - why there is no just "after clip ends" option?

Live would be easier :)

Select all 1 bar loops and can change actions for all at the same time, do the same for 2 and 4 and 8 and whatever.


That's assuming you have a specified length on the loops.

It's a much-requested feature. Have a look in the Feature Requests forum section and feel free to bump that thread.

there is no loops - there is no warping

every clip is different length... that's the problem

if the clip is 1.1.467 - you can't specify the follow action point automatically

just experiment with the CLOSEST values as posssible - it's ok in most cases but not perfect.
