    What is the naming structure for the auto play folder that goes on the sd card in the fb4.

    Exporting the work space from within beyond puts all the files In The dmx folder. Is there a way to export to the auto play folder.?

    I'm also working on understanding how autostart operates at the moment.

    Some documentation would be nice...

    The filename convention in the auto folder is:

    auto_001.FB4Animation
    auto_002.FB4Animation
    auto_003.FB4Animation

    etc.

    so you can just copy the files from the DMX folder and rename them.

    I've got this far using trial and error but I still haven't figured out how to trigger autostart with any method other than power on.

    I have also found that a cue played direct from QS looks different from the one autoplayed from the SD card, as though the projector settings are different even though I exported from QS with "Multizone+Output" selected.

    So if you have any ideas about that, it would be useful!

    Thanks for the help.

    I too have only made it work with the power on trigger.

    Sorry I can't be of help regarding the zone settings baked into the animations stored on the sd card. As a temporary solution you can do some basic geometric correction from the FB4 menu.

    It's the scan rate settings which don't seem to be correct and they can't be set on the FB4 menu.

    Testing it in QS, it looks like the colour/blanking shift setting is at 1 when played in autostart but on my projector it needs to be set to 5.

    Is this product so new that maybe a lot of users haven't used the autostart feature and haven't experienced these issues?
