Hello.
Could you please tell me if I can program (and how, if possible)10 screens of 15 seconds repeating from 6A.M. to 7p.m without copy and paste my 10 screens +/- 1800 times ?
Thank you.

why do you not just incorporate all the screens into the one screen? and adjust the timings

let us know what format you are using on each of your screens and ill try to help as best i can.

Thank you Ewanl30 !
I tried to understand what you meaned, .... and I did !
1) I calculate the total lenght and I put this lenght for the background screen
2) I create all my windows with start hour/finish hour to switch from the one to the following
3) I scheduled my screen from 6A.M. to 7p.m.
(I have web and picture windows)

And that's all !!! no ?
Thanks again ...

yeah thats all you need to do just build the screens on top of each other
instead of doing an separate screen for each one build them all on top of each other and change the timings on each individual aspect either web or picture.

does this resolve the issue for you?

Could you please walk me through step by step on how to incorporate multiple ppt screens so I can run them all day(14hrs) w/out scheduling them separately on the scheduler. Thanks!

Hi

you need to set the times the items will run in run in the "area" option sequentially-so your first item would run from 00:00:00 to 00:30:00 - your second item would run from 00:30:00 to 01:00:00 and so on, this presumes each of your files is 30 minutes long..

Set the main page background to run for the total time you want all the files to cycle (14 hours) then set up the schedule to play the resulting file when required.

Hope that helps :-)

Sorry for being naive, since I am new to this, but did you mean I will do that through the schedule screen...? I have two screens (i.e. A three hours and B one hour) that are scheduled to rotate every day for 14 hours. It is somewhat complicated for me since I have to create a screen every designated time I run A/B.

Is there a way I can integrate both screens, and create a schedule once(both screens)?

Thank you!

If all your screens are ppt, it would be much easier to set up this 15 second timing in PowerPoint and then save as a wmv file (if you have office 2010).
Alternatively, save your ppt slides as jef images and then add timings as you would with any photo content in magicinfo 'screen' section.

Although this is a good solution, eg to convert PPTX to WMV through Office 2010, you do not have to do this.

MagicInfo pro can do the PPX files within a frame provided you set the scheduler to use the PPX Viewer (there is an option to do this with MagicInfo pro scheduler). I find that the PPT Viewer 2007 is the best. I don't use viewer 2010 as it gives me endless problems.
