Layer order for Player

Postby Patrick Verhey » Thu Dec 02, 2010 5:13 pm

Hi,

here are some sample files to change the order of video and grafic layers in the Pandoras Box Player. Just open the project file for your player and you can use the moved layer order.
Please make sure to use the right file either for V3 or V4.5 and rename the layers as you like. The layer IDs will stay the same so it is usefull to rename the layers.

Hi Patrick

I tried these showfiles on PlayerPro v4.7.

The order is changed OK, but some strange things are different, the X and Y lin in the camera is missing, that makes the camera channel order wrong, and my DMX fixture behaves strange.
I'm using oldschool DMX. :-)

Hi Kasper,

you are right. Somehow we dropped some camera channels. Seems that this is caused by the change to 16 bit keystone. I will upload new files later.

thanks

Patrick

Dear all,

as Kasper found some mistakes in the Player files for Version 4 and higher please find new files for download. They are fixed and also have a nice naming for the layers.

Please remember that the will only work from 4.0 on.

Hi,

there is no straight way to do that. You can open the xml file with wordpad and exchange the order in there, but this is very critical as you can destroy your showfile with that completely.

best regards

Patrick

Hi!

The sorting option in the new Version 5 or the manual editing in the showfile is not meant to be just for having an overview.
The layer order is the rendering order of the output.

This re-order option is new in Version 5, so that you don't have to manually edit the showfile (which is not recommended) any longer if you wish to have a video layer in front of a graphic layer.
