Here's a screenshot of the playlist/sequencer window that will be part of the next version.

A nice feature of the playlist is that you can export the whole playlist as a single video file. The means that if you build your animations out of lots of short shows (as I always do) you no longer have to use your NLE to make a single video file out of it. Very convenient!

Please don't ask me when the next version will be released. As always this depends on the success of the current version: the more copies we sell, the more time we can invest in the next version and the sooner it will be released.

This clearly a great feature. A crossfade or dissolve transition switch (on / off) can be added between shows in the playlist is a nice add-on.

Michiel, could you add a *.swf support in the next version?

Not sure a full screen gui would be a good thing. But the playlist as describe here clearly is very good addition.

What you are seeing in this screenshot are 3 windows.

The render and the playlist window are fully resizable and all three can be moved.

At any time the tool and the playlist window can be closed/opened independent of each other.

I upgraded already to version 8 PRO, but I am not getting the same graphic presentation you show in this example, here is more modern.
In the other hand I don't know, how to get that playlist beside the main window.

This screenshot has been created with Windows Vista. Maybe that explains the "modern" look.

To move the playlist window, point to its title bar with the mouse pointer . Then drag the window to the location that you want.

I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I can't get any playlist at all, and no any Blufftitler Playlist.
But it's OK I can survive.

I was wondering where can I find out more about scheduling different playlists. Is there any examples on how to do this anywhere? If not, can you post a tutorial? I would ultimately like to be able to schedule different playlists/shows to run at different times of the day, week and month. To able to play a particuliar playlist or show based on certain event trigger or when and xml node has a certain value or name. There are many uses for this. An intuitive interface to create, control and edit times, shows/playlists as well as other parameters is needed. This would be very powerful in digital signage applications. Thanks for such a wonderful program as it is now very awesome and useful. A Playlist Scheduler Interface would really help turn this already jewel of a program into an extremely powerful real-time automated information system.
