Kill or Release Playbacks when Unused

Make it possible to automatically kill or release playbacks when they no longer control and channels on the output. This would mean that once the playback was fully overridden it would turn off.

There is one other thing I thought about today: on Hogs there is an option on scenes that's called "release on the other go". That's basically an option for the cue to be released as soon as the next cue (cuelist or scene) is triggered.

Maybe worth thinking about adding that as well at this point.

An interesting idea that would allow a number of related playbacks (particularly those not associated with faders such as in the playbacks window) to be fired and then refired if necessary without needing to manually kill them first.

I am unsure if this would be a total solution in that you could conceivably have a situation where it is not suitable to override all of the controls but I think it would be a neat way for the majority of cases.

in this case it's actually indeed worth having a look at other manufacturers how they deal with this. OnOffOverwritten/Persist On Override (MA and Hog respectively) work pretty much the same and in order to simplify the workflow for programmers used to other consoles it wouldn't be a bad thing to orientate this particular feature along with other manufacturers

For the other consoles that do this, it is a playback/executor option. For those consoles that function like this by default, there's an playback option for it to keep that playback active instead. For those consoles that function like Titan by default, they have a playback option for the playback to be killed/released when overridden instead. So you can have each playback behave whichever way you need for that particular playback.

I think it is certainly beneficial if there is familiarity with other brands and a 'Persist on Override' on/off playback toggle makes perfect sense to me but of course if there's a way to improve the function or make it more intuitive at the same time that would be even better.

oh absolutely. Beat dividers being a prime example here. I requested them being inspired by MA and Avo just went bonkers with it and it turned out to be genius.
However I rather have this functionality as it is known from others sooner than an improved version later (also I do have to admit that I can't imagine right now how to improve that feature - anyhow, happy to let them surprise me)
