SS32 - Live Copy

Post by denevans » Mon Apr 25, 2016 11:13 am

I'm looking to create and schedule Live Copy - (CPY LCxxx.rtf). I see in MERGE that you can create the Live Copy, but I'm not finding the information needed to schedule Live Copy. I'm using Natural for my traffic and music. Id love to make a Rotator ( like in TLC ) and hard program it in Natural Music... Thoughts?
Thank you

It's been a long time since I've used SS32 (moved on to WideOrbit) but I believe you should be able to schedule Live Copy like any other elements. I'm not sure how you have your cart numbers setup in Natural Log/Natural Music but using LC instead of DA before the cart number should allow you to schedule it.

The output in your log text file should look something like:
13:30:00,,COM,LC0123,"LIVE COPY TITLE","ARTIST/Note",00:10,,,,,

Where a normal commercial would look something like:
13:30:00,,COM,DA0123,"Commercial Title","ARTIST/Note",00:10,,,,,

I don't believe SS32 can use live copy in rotators. You'd be best just letting natural log rotate copy.

Hope this helps
