When the log says "Checking S5 sequence" - that means the entire LOREDIT file is being read. I'm looking now to see if that can be optimized.

Matt

This will be addressed in the next release. As your testing has shown, this only impacts the startup of the next sequence when the LOREDIT file is very large.

Matt, quick question.

If I make a change to a group definition from Sequencer, say, changing the arrangement,  does that count as a change to the preview, and will it cause the show player to reprocess all the files.

I changed something today in one sequence and all the songs reprocessed, despite having run all of them through Sequence Compressor yesterday.

I never had Preview Design open directly at any time today.

Not really a problem if you know about it. I'm compressing again now.

Yes, the group definition is stored in the preview file, so even though you can change it from the sequence grid, it changes the preview and all of the sequences associated with that preview will be reprocessed.

Checking sequence down to a second or 2. I can live with that. Thanks Matt!

Doug, Do I gather that you updated to 5.5.16 and that improved it?

Check the date on the play files. See if they are updating during checking.

Nope.  Showing about a week ago.

Just for grins, I exited the test show on demand, exited the show player, edited the show to change to load all sequences before any are played, then restarted the show player and started a show on demand.  From the log below, you can see it took 40 seconds to check all the sequences, but once that was completed, you can see that it still took three seconds after THX and Opening ended and Wizards started.  Although it was after I copied the log, the next song transition took two seconds.

Here is the log:

As several of you are, I run MIIP.  That means every song is played as the first song in a "new" show.  I ran two tests today, and was seeing several seconds of delay (up to 5 or 6) between songs - seemed like forever...

I can't post a log because show computer does an automated reboot Wednesday afternoon - which of course wipes the status display log.  I'll run another test tomorrow morning.
