Live time is already on the second fader by default.
Some explanation to the behavior change you noticed.
In Vista R2 the “live” cuelist was the cuelist that was loaded into the superplayback when in “IPCG mode”.
In R3 this super playback behaviour was changed for a number of reasons:
- Many users requested that the selected / default cuelist playback controls (play, pause, etc) remained operational when in “IPCG mode” and not just “cuelist playback mode”. The fader pair and the playback controls act as one component.
- It makes no sense to have the “live” cuelist as the default target for operations. Especially command line operations.
Overall, there are quite a lot of advantages to changing to this system but it does mean that we lost the programmer intensity fader. Although, this has actually been “blank” by default for a long time. It caused a lot of tech support requests if someone forgot to push it up.
I will however mention the programmer intensity fader to the dev team. There may be a way we can bring it back without changing the above.
