Which decorations include "buffer" files for motion sensor triggers?
If you're using AtmosFX decorations on digital download format, you may notice that some decorations include short videos called "buffer" files.
Buffer files are static background videos designed to perfectly blend with the beginning and end of the other video clips in your playlist to create a seamless digital decoration effect.
If you're using the Sprite Media Player, buffer files will allow you to create motion-sensor activated decorations. Only one decoration can be used at a time with the motion sensor.
How to Locate Buffer Files
Buffer files are included in complete digital download collections. While most decorations may originally include buffer files, some collections had buffer files added later as a separate download on the digital download page. They will always be labeled with the words "buffer" in the file name.
Many single scenes do not include buffer files, but they can be provided upon request.
If you're need assistance locating your buffer files, please contact the AtmosFX support team for assistance and they will be happy to help.
Using Buffer Files in a Playlist
Buffer files can also be used in custom playlists where you wish to create longer pauses between decoration scenes.
You can add the buffer file to your playlist multiple times back to back to expand the length of extra time in between decorations.
