Different Campaigns within one timeline
« on: December 11, 2009, 02:18:52 PM »
My issue is Different ad campaigns in different zones within one set TIMELINE.

OK..lets say I have a campaign with 3 items @ 1 min each with a timeline of 3 mins.
Zone 1 will fit this timeline...(3 1 min ads)
Zone 2 has 10 ads with various times which falls ..lets say 8 mins.
Zone 3 is ok as It is a ticker that will repeat itself.

My question:
1]What do I do with the remaining 5 Mins in Zone 1 ( I have no ads to fill it)?
2) If I need to change an ad in Zone 1 with a longer duration....
Would I have to change the whole timeline?

I need a way for each Zone (Part of Screen) to auto loop back to the 1st item in the zone regardless of the amount of resources in it...or to be able to have different resources with various duration runs within that same set TIMELINE campaign.

As it is now...it seems I have to Fill in that extra 5 mins or the last item on zone 1 will stay for the 5 mins b4 it loops back to the beginning of the ads in that particular zone. *sigh*.

Hope you can help me as I am getting FRUSTRATED reading and listening to something that does not explain all.

Just trying to understand and get this up and running fast!!
Thanks in advance.

The easiest way it to click on the CHANNEL on the timeline and under the channel properties select the checkbox, "repeat to fit".
This will cause all resources to automatically play in repeat fashion....
