Duration of Steps Rounding to Nearest .05

Postby Beekle » 09 October 2018, 05:10

Hello!

Is there a reason when I enter the duration of a step such as .08, it rounds it to .10? For Example: If you were to set the total duration as .32 and had four steps, it allows them to be .08, but if you change the duration individually, it always rounds the number to the nearest .05.

Is this intentional or am I missing something?

Thanks!

This is because the smallest possible duration for a step is 0,05 sec.

But you can make 5 steps with an overall duration of .20s making each step .04s. That is less than .05s. But if you manually type .04s on a step it rounds to .05s.

This is a small bug (noted in our ToDo list).
The software should change the values to multiple of 0.05s.

Is there a technological limitation that requires steps to be .05? What are you supposed to do if you're creating scenes for a song in a BPM such as 135 and 1 Beat is 0.44s and 1 Bar is 1.77s? Just looking for some suggestions :lol:

0,05 is a safe duration for the software to calculate everything between two frames of channels, with a standard computer.
With a 0.44s beat, the frame will arrive sometimes a bit earlier, and sometimes a bit later. At the end of the song, the max delay is 0,05s.
