[Feature Request Submitted] - Auto-renumbering of snapshots and new actors: "Current Snapshot Number", "Number of Snapshots"



  • Hi,

    I have three feature suggestions related to snapshots:

    1. An option to auto-renumber snaps from 1, 2, 3, 4,... n, just like the command "Renumber Snapshot" does it, but automatically, whenever snapshots are rearranged or deleted.
    Use case: this option would make recalling snaps from external controllers easier and more transparent, as one could simply order the snaps in a scene as desired to assign them to different hardware buttons, knob position etc. I'm sure the current system with absolute snap numbers hast its uses and advantages, but at least for me, a system with a continuous numbering has that as well.

    2. An actor "Current Snapshot Number" which would work like the corresponding "Current Scene Number" actor.
    Use case: to indicate which snap is currently active, for example to an external controller with a display or lit buttons.

    3. An actor "Number of Snapshots" which outputs the number of snapshots in a scene.
    Use case: such an actor would make it easier and more transparent to navigate the snaps within a scene and it, too, would be helpful for setting up/configuring external controllers.

    Thanks for reading and keep up the great work! :-)

     Hard agree. I've already added most of this as feature requests on the staff forum but I'll add your description too.
