Thanks for the reply admin.

In the meantime, do you have any suggested work arounds? :)
It'll be nice that we can provide some kind of answer to our clients too.

Will 4.2 include the ability to copy & paste timelines? You said previously that it was in the road map... that's the most important thing to me right now, as I have many boxes that I have to build and doing the same timeline 15-20 times is tedious and a time-waster...

Yes, this is still in the roadmap.

Hi there,

We really appreciate all the hardwork the mediasignage team has put in for all the new/improved features and I'm really looking forward to the final 4.0 :)

Though allow me to say, the feature to remove the cross fades between resources is very important and should receive some priority.

Why more than others? Because this is what the customer and the customer's customers sees.
 
This is especially jarring when you have video playback. As both the sound and image is heard/seen.

So together with the other users here, I hope this can be fixed really soon or at least suggest something we can do to minimize the fades.

Thank you!

We didn't add it to 4.0, since it is part of a MUCH larger release 4.2 which will include dozens of new hardware accelerated GPU transitions.
So when we deliver it, it will be done right!!! Sorry for the delay, but it will be worth the wait ;)

I realize how it must be for your costumers to attempt managing your schedule, but I completely agree with th. Is there no way you could provide a solution to this very wanted and urgent issue? To be honest, I'd rather have this now, than GPU hardware-acceleration later. You don't have to provide a fully documented and versatile solution. Just a simple fix or a parameter that disables cross-fading on all of the campaign.

Again, I apologize for attempting to manage your schedule. I just find this need to perfect before releasing anything unnecessary.

I want to say a big Thank you to the Admin for listening and helping us push for the feature earlier..

I saw by chance today, under Stations, there's a new tab - Performance with 'Transitions' option.!

And I verified it works.. no more cross fades! :) Thanks!!!

I'm curious, what does the frame rate do? should we match the videos that we are playing?
