Can anyone provide an example of usage of the Manual Reset function (when building a clock, it's the option in the dropdown called 'Reset')?

I understand that it is to do with timing, but I don't quite understand what it does and under what circumstances it might be useful. Any explanations in words of single syllables would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

Hi Matt,

My understanding is if you had several 'hard posts' within an hour. Instead of using 'Absolute Time Markers' you would use 'Reset' - useful if the hour does not actually contain much music but is more speech driven and say you had travel every 20 minutes that you needed to hit. The timings/overun etc would go to those timeframes instead of just the end of the hour.

Hi Matt and Matt,

exactly, the "reset time" allows you to reset the estimated start times of the items in the log, so if you have to do travel at :20 you can see if you have too much or too little programed into that section of the log. They are ignored by Myriad when playing out and are just designed for the "good old fashioned, human being" to assist in timing the hour.

Ah ha OK. I think I get it now. So it's just a signpost within the hour to say "you should be roughly at XX:XX by this point" but I guess in AutoFade it is simply ignored.

Thanks for the words of wisdom.

Exactly Smile
A really popular use for these is in talk heavy shows like a breakfast show, where you know you will play a 3 minute song out of the news at 8:05, but then the next item is a travel at 8:20. Without a ResetTime, the travel bed would show a start time of ~8.08, but that can confuse us humans, so you put in a reset time before the travel bed of 08:20 and voila, the "start times" are RESET to 08:20, and the bed now shows the start time if 8:20
