Feature request: layer "playlist of layers"

Often there is a need to play a successive combination of layers.

For example "Start Show": the starting video, with the output to the main camera + titles + sound jingle + news crawl

OR "Show end": finishing video + scrolling credits + news crawl + breaking news

Would be an interesting implementation: a layer is created - where from the drop-down lists it was possible to compose a playlist of existing layer variants with the ability to select "simultaneously", "sequentially", with a "delay in sec"

This will give you the ability to create prepared sets of advertising, referrals to rubrics, and similar opportunities


  • Thanks for your feature suggestion!

  • I second this request, though I view it functioning more as a "folder" or layers that are nested into a group. The folder/parent could be triggered by its own live button, and all of its contents are triggered simultaneously or in sequenced based on a delay time set respectively for each layer that's relative to the group's live button trigger. This would be a BIG feature, IMO.

  • I'll third it :)

    I actually have a 'live' program, where it is a bunch of pre-recorded segments, but we run the transition bumpers, lower thirds, show open, logo bug, date/time, underscore music, closing sequence, etc.... live.

    If that could all be automated, and just run by pressing a button, that would be very useful... and actually remove human error.

    There are professional news systems that actually do a similar thing. You plug in all the elements, and the computer becomes the TD for the show

  • Why hasn't this been considered a core part of the design by now? MimoLive is a love / hate relationship right now. Lots of greatness, but a few glaring issues prevent it from being a pro app to me.

    If you serious about video and TV production (I'm 30+ years in) there is a real need to group backgrounds, 2 shots, titles, crawls and other elements.

    I REALLY want ML to be my main app - but the layer switching is primitive at best. Switcher software should give you the ability to key command a layer or layer group while turning others off.

    Unless I am missing something, I cant assign a key command to switch between two sources. Each button would only toggle the layer on or off without hiding a potentially higher layer.

    Please make this software more useable and functional. Assigning the same key command to multiple layers does not switch on/off at the same time. There's an obvious delay in some layers.

    Hoping for greater things!

  • up, any news?

  • We are hearing you: This feature is on the top list! Thanks for your patience!

    Looking forward to this!

    If the layer stack is like a video switcher bus, then a nested group of layers would be like a Mix/Effects bus. The ability to work with, and transition between, multiple M/E busses is a core functionality of high-end video switchers.

    A group of layers could be called a "scene" in mimoLive; and if scenes also had the ability to sequence and delay the playback of its layers, then both the OP's needs and JeffInHighDef's request would be fulfilled.

  • This would be very helpful
