Dynamic scene play list

how-to

#1

Hi Everybody,

I’m trying to create an experience with several scenes that will play in an order with the ability to turn off some scenes. All the would be based off some input from a data source (api, excel, etc…). Each scene would stay on the screen for X seconds before going to the next scene.

Here’s an example:

Monday 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4
Tuesday 4 -> 2 -> 1
Wednesday 1 -> 2 -> 4
Thursday 1

All based on input from an external data source. Any thoughts?

Hi Chuck,

You can pull the value of current day from the Day As Sting Property of the Time Interface Asset.

Then use some Excel Interface Asset filtering on day value to set up your list of scenes for the day.

Regards,

Alex.

Cool, What would the logic look like inside intuiface?

There are several ways to do it I guess, here is a sample using:

Experience starts with scene named “START”.
Then you can navigate between the scenes planned for the day with Previous/Next buttons.
Experience ends when you reach the scene “END”.

Thanks Alex!

I just thought of an additional way.

Insert a list of scene names from an excel sheet or api response in a asset flow collection and place it in an experience layer. On an “Is moved to the next item” trigger, set the scene to change to the scene that’s in focus.
