If I have say 4 videos events for animation, and I want to trigger each video when someone touches the trigger area. With the single timeline, I can only jump between 1 of 4 videos when triggered - that is CV event triggers a jump to a location in the timeline. What I wanted to do was to be able to trigger any of the 4 events independently.
I hope this makes sense… please let me know if you have any questions
Modified your sample project and I can sense a location in space with the RealSense and have it trigger 4 separate 5 second “video” animations
And I remember why the timeline was mentioned - because video playback tracks the layer time. So while the above works perfectly for content created in LightAct (like the color generators), if i replace them with a video playback, the period of time the clip is visible on the canvas is linked to the layer time.
For example if my video was filling up a container of water, the animation plays with layer time, but the visibility of the clip is at that moment in time…
As previously communicated, this has been fixed in v3.1.3. The release is now officially online. Considering what you are creating with Lightact, you might be interested in the fact that Lightact now supports TUIO.
