Columns as Cues
I think it would be much easier for theatre work if it was possible to treat the columns as Cues, so that you could program "Fade Up Column 2, fade down column 1" etc etc. Right now i have a lot of work with "Setup automatic transition" inside "Effects" inside "Media / Image" for all media on a column.
I often use a composition with the layers inside, but then i cannot control the layers inside the composiiton with artnet, osc etc.
All this is for speed, when a director asks for a different fade time etc.
In short I think a column shold be a bit like a cue in Qlab (not to replace qlab, just to organize the video content in a fast way)
Hi. We redesigned transitions so you can easilly define one at column level, and even at layer/column level.

I really agree with this idea.
I think that a vertical think of time is a good solution.
And in this way, it can be possible to manually fade between column, like on a lightdesk
