    I'm trying to figure out what ProTracks are? lol There's nothing in the documentation and no tutorials referencing ProTracks, yet I see this new stuff regarding "proTrack effects" in B2.1 Anyone?

    ProTrack is a static cue player. It is alternative to dynamic players.

    Usually, when you click on the cue, BEYOND create a player for this cue. You stop the cue and player will be removed. This is very comfortable model for many situations, however, as any decision, it has some limitations.

    ProTrack is a player you can access from script or UI. You can change effect leaving the cue, or change cue leaving the effect or settings inactive. In fact, there are many consequences.

    ProTrack may be considered as track of LivePRO too. Not exact copy, but similar nature.

    Anyway, I think words static and dynamic explain the reason. The resist is a consequence.

    Alexey,

    If protrack is used instead of dynamic player and I add effects at protrack level, can I still use quick capture to create new cues with effects intact?

    There is better question than possible or no. Should be go this way or no.

    "Capture" in its form has a limit because of "chicken and egg" paradox.

    another question on ProTracks

    Hi Alexey, is ProTrack player a feature primarily for live operations or does it has a usage for timeline based shows too ? (sorry maybe I misunderstand something generally )

    Yeah.. I don't really understand this.. I think I just need to see it in action.
