Loader Options contains options when loading an actor model and provides management for actor cache.
Loaded actor models are cached in memory so that next time it is loaded it will be instant. Within the cache manager you can change number of cached models and delete particular models from the cache.
Once turned on, when replacing actors, the settings for the outgoing actor will be kept and applied to the new actor model.
Choose and configure the animation when actor models are faded in and out.
Auto Actor Change
This is a special feature that automatically replace current actor on the stage with cached actors, when the value of this slider cross certain threshold.
For example if you have 4 actors in the cache. The value of the slider and the corresponding actor will be:
- 0-0.25: Actor 1
- 0.25-0.5: Actor 2
- 0.5-0.75: Actor 3
- 0.75-1: Actor 4
A common usecase for this is to enable Auto Update and set it to timeline 0-100%. When the song is in the first 25%, the first actor will be on the stage, then when it cross the 25% mark, the system will start the transition from actor 1 to actor 2.
