[BEST PRACTICE] Use the "initialize" feature instead of "Enter Scene Value" to Initialize Media Inputs
I've just written a new "Best Practice" article because this issue caused a user trouble recently. If you're interactively manipulating the media input (i.e,. the 'movie' input of a Movie Player) then this is an article you should read.
Read and understood it :-).
Yes, important detail for users to understand.
@mark got it, important to know
Read - all makes sense.
I use this initialize function a lot, it's very handy.
Talking about this function, it would be great to have color of values that will be initialized at scene enter changed to another color.
You not always remember all the values that will initialized when entering a scene..
Feature request ?
All the best
I find that I rarely, if ever, use the Enter Scene Value actor. I always just seem to use the Initialize function. I'm curious though, are there situations where using the Enter Scene Value actor would be preferable to having something initialize?
How about the use of global value actors?
If I want to choose the media in the next scene interactively before starting it. What's the precedence? The get global value actor or the saved value?!
This is a little tougher. I think init to 'Zero', and perhaps init active to 'off'.
Use enterscene to set the movie ID (to non zero), and then set active 'on'.
If required you could manually preload the media before the jump. (requires caution)
Thank you @DusX DusX,
that makes sense
