3Play stores the Control and Output Delegate states for Channel A and B independently, along with other important parameters – including the current CLIP LIST or PLAY LIST selection state, playhead position, and so on.
Consider an example:
- Channel A may be delegated to Clips, and playing a certain clip from the CLIP LIST
- Meanwhile, Channel B might display the same clip in slow motion, or something else altogether – really any source, in any state of play.
When you newly select a Channel Delegate (A or B), the Replay Desktop display is refreshed to show the current state for that channel if it is appropriate to do so. This brings us back to the Link button. You may wonder what effect different controls will have in this special ‘tandem mode’, and what will be displayed on the Replay Desktop when it’s in use.
