Feature Preview: Timers Enhanced
With SongShow Plus 8.2, the Timers feature has been enhanced.
Fundamentally, the Timers code has been upgraded to use the newer SongShow Plus video interfaces. This lets timers be used in all places that a video is used. Previously, Timers were treated as a special type of video object and were limited to being presented only as a primary media item.
Now, timers can be used not only as primary media items, but also as a background video, an Overlay Improv video, fills for objects, and can be embedded into a slide show.
The Timers feature has also been enhanced with the new option letting you specify a timer that will countdown to the next quarter, half, or whole hour.
One important change to note: There will no longer be a Timers media files panel. Timers will now be created within the Videos media panel. If your system already has Timers that you have created, these will be automatically copied to a Timers subfolder within the SongShow plus Videos fold.
