Thank you for posting and welcome to LightAct Answerhub!
LightAct Manager is available only for Pro licenses, however, what you are describing seems to be possible just with LightAct.
Have a look at the Layout below, for example:
Here, we are taking the current system time, and checking if it is between 15h (3pm) and 23h (11pm). If it is, we execute Render to Canvas node.
So with this kind of logic, you can schedule automatic playback (or anything else, for that matter).
The functionalities of LightAct Manager are as follows:
- automatic start & playback of a specified LightAct project (.la file) whenever Windows boots up
- checking if LightAct crashed and if it did, it can restart the project automatically
- you can also schedule automatic system restarts if you want
So Manager (and WebUIs) are meant for installations that are to be run 24/7 with minimal supervision.
I hope this helps, but if you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to let me know.
