.exportformat file change

Post by djbony » 15 Sep 2017 20:49

Hi Berndt,
could you make this change in default .exportformats file to Powergold?
<field name="Duration" start="0" length="0" align="left" pad=" ">${durationms}</field>
<field name="Ramp" start="0" length="0" align="left" pad=" ">${ramptimems}</field>

I must change it after each update :)

Thank you very much :)

Petr

If that is exactly what Powergold expects sure!
But note, that the different is, that ${ramptimems} denotes the duration/length of the ramp; whereas ${rampms} denotes the posiiton of the ramp?!
But then I assume I would also need to change the ${ramp2ms}; ${outroms}, ${fulllevelms}...etc ?!

Also note, that the ${lengthms} denotes the total (original) duration of the track.
Whereas ${durationms} denotes the effective duration (taking CueIn and CueOut into account).
Whereas ${playtimems} denotes the effective playtime (taking CueIn, CueOut and the Next cue-point into account).

Can you verify this?!

I know. But if I plane playlist, I work with real total time in hour. Real lenght of track and intro offers only $durationms and $ramtimems. Other I do not use.

Then it sounds even the ${playtimems} would be better suited.
However, I hope you understand, that I would not only need to support your needs but all users needs.
So it would be irrational to only change the ramp value but not the others.
Can you clarify, why Powergold needs the ramp value you are wanting instead of the current one?

Powergold does not need ramp. It's value only for me..

What I will do is to exclude the .exportformat file from the updates; unless there is a fundamental change in the format or new formats are added (which is rarely the case) - as such, it is not constantly overwriting your settings.
