Global Parameters



  • Hi.

    I'm working on a show and am wondering if there is a way to set global values within Isadora.
    For instance, I use the crop actor in multiple scenes. Is there a way to set the value for crop once and then have those values populate globally rather having to go into each scene to change the values?
    Thank you.
    Daniel


  • Hi Daniel,

    No, not as far as I know, but it is possible to broadcast a value to all active scenes using a Broadcaster actor in a scene which always remains active. Listener actors using the same channel in each scene that contains the Crop actor will then get this broadcasted value.
    The only thing I found so far to keep a scene active at all times is an Enter Scene Trigger actor connected to an Activate Scene actor in every other scene.


  • Put the crop in a user actor and it should update across each scene

    I have not problem, using 'activate scene' once to have a background scene active throughout a show.
    also the User Actor solution is great for updating multiple objects while building your project, while the background scene and broadcast/listener are perfect for global live/dynamic elements.



  • Oh... you're right DusX. The only problem is if for any reason you click on the "Always active" scene and go back to another scene which doesn't have the Activate Scene actor, the "Always active" scene will be deactivated. But it's true, if you don't do that, you don't need an Activate Scene actor in every other scene.
