I am a new user of isadora.
I would like to make a composition of videos that follow each other, sometimes there would be 2 or 3 videos playing at the same time and then only one. No superposition of videos on the same surface.
If I have 5 videos, is it better to put 1 video per scene and use an element that allows the video to play until the end even if I change scene?
Put all the videos on one scene and delay their start?
How to make the videos fade out to leave room for the others to appear?
For the moment the video stops on the last frame...
I don't know if I'm very clear, I can try to clarify if needed
Thanks for your help

When your videos need to be display at the same time you can use several projector and movie players in the same scene (button) in the time bar at th efoot of the window
then if you need after to diplay other video one or more in the following time , you should create another scene.
You can set crossfade time and type of crossfade in the two box on left top of the scenes bar.
You can also use the movieplayer position output to trigger another movie player. In this case you will certainly have to set initializing value for the position, when entering the scene.
(to avoid undesired change when playing sveral times your scenes.
Hop it can help and sorry for my bad english writing.

its probably better to use different Movie Players in the same scene and trigger them according to when you need each movie to play. You can add Video Mixers or Selectors between Movie Players and your Projector(s) and trigger values to these using various methods, such as Envelope Generator, Trigger Delay or Comparator.
If you initialise the speed of each Movie Player to zero, it will not play until you trigger a value of 1 to it.
