follow playback in session view

Post by zwolf » Tue Nov 05, 2013 9:24 pm

Is there a way to get the session view screen to scroll or follow along with the currently playing scene? The "follow" button allows for following transport in arrangement view, but it doesn't work in session. I'd love to find a a way to view the currently playing scene rather than see it disappear off screen...

What do you mean by 'view a scene' ?
You've got clip state indicators in the clip section.
MacBook Pro 13" Retina i7 2.8 GHz OS 10.13, L10.0.1, M4L.
iMac 27" Retina i5 3,2 GHz OS 10.11.3 L10.0.1 M4L.

I mean when you have a bunch of scenes full of clips playing successively, I want to be able to still see the scene that's playing, not have it go off screen. So some kind of automatic scroll down...

Normally it scrolls and focus the launched scene when needed (with Push -and the same goes with an APC and a Launchpad- , but also when selecting + launching with your computer's keyboard).

Clyphx has commands that scroll the red box.
Name you first clip below the bottom of screen
The appropriate clyphx command,
and when that clip is triggered with follow actions
the red box will move to the designated position.
