View Full Version : Auto-Toggle the reverse button for FX

I'd like to see a menu selection allowing for an automatic toggle from forward to reverse when using a transition. At this time you can run a transition forward but to run it in reverse you have to select the "reverse" button. If there were a selection to automatically toggle the "reverse button" from on to off each time the transition is made, whether it's done manually or automatically, life would be great. This "toggle" function and the ability to add color borders to the transitions is the main thing I'm missing from my old switcher.

Hint: Instead of turning the "reverse" button on and off it could be set to "forward"/"Reverse"/"Toggle".

OK...I'd also like to see the reflection on all trajectories.

XD300 has this feature ("Alternate"), and it's very cool. It seems like something that might eventually migrate to some future upgrade.

It's also do-able as a userscript:

Is that the thread you meant to link, Bill? (Seems to be a different topic ...)

Yep - the script's in post #10, we use it every Sunday.

Aaah, yes - thanks. I overlooked the change of 'Auto' in the discussion of switching.
