    I edited universe Zone brightness slider and Zone Mute button and all work perfect, but I would like "Zone pause" button also, but this function not available in the zone list.

    thank you!

    If you are talking about same images running on multiple zones, I think you should take a look at pro-tracks.
    Pro-tracks have the ability to control speed per track.

    Zones cannot be paused. Zones are destinations. its the cue that is playing.

    Yes, I already tried protrack and pause function is work good, but I tried same function on the zones.
    Ok, I understand, the zone is not suitable this.

    There is simple rule. "BEYOND plays Cue. BEYOND does not play Zone".

    Logic behind is simple. Every time as you start cue in the grid, BEYOND create cue player. It is one single player, that serve one single cue. Play can be pauses, restarted and so on, because time is one of player properties. And, frames calculated by player goes to the output - projection zones. Projection zone is a destination, and it can be dynamically changed (zone chase effect, and so on). So, projection zone is at the end of pipeline.

    There are some exceptions from this logic, but is goes out of scope of initial question.
