One of the issues we had when we upgraded to version 4.0 was that the song database didn't update the loop settings for all of our song cues for our background loop videos, and actually reset them to 1 play through only.
Whether or not it is currently implemented, I think it would be a great idea to allow the user when importing an older song database or library to be able to set all of the loop settings or other common settings for all the song cues being imported.
This way you do not have to go through each one and set them to "Loop" in MediaShout, and even though it would be faster to just access the database file through Microsoft Access, this is not allowed though due to copyright restrictions.
When I did import my song library, I made sure to keep it on the same template in case there could be any issues. This template is from version 3.5.
The reason I said it would be great to change the common settings such as the loop setting is because importing an older large song library may need backwards compatibility for these types of variables in newer versions of MediaShout.
Certain new variables from updated versions of MediaShout may not have been available in previous versions, then the user could compensate without having to spend extra time going into each song by setting all of them. They could then just start with a "refreshed template" when the older template doesn't have all of the same variables.
I also did try the "repair library" function, this was only able to correct improper linking to background loop videos.
Hope this makes sense.
Thank you for your time.
EMPLOYEE0If the loop setting is saved to the template, then using the template should apply the setting. However, if you jut apply the setting to the cue with out saving it to the template, the template properties are reapplied thus causing things to be reset.
If this is not your case, please let me know.
