I think I am having the same issue... but it's not just audio.

I have a new project.. base layer w/audio and animation, layer 1 with audio and animation and layer 2 with audio and animation.  Both layer 1 and layer 2 are set to NOT hide other slide layer and are also set to YES for allow seeking.

The base layer has a trigger to show both layer 1 and layer 2 when it's timeline starts.

So basically all 3 layers (base, 1 and 2) are all playing at the same time... the pause button then seem to only work on the last layer shown.. the "top most" layer if you will.

If that what is supposed to happen or is there someway to make the pause button that is attached to the seek bar pause any and all layers?

Helene,

I believe that is expected behavior.  By allowing seeking on the layers, you're creating a situation in which the main seekbar is only controlling the most recently activated layer. If you do not allow seeking on the layers, you should see the main seekbar pause everything.

Yes... I agree... I would think that at SOME point i would see the main seekbar pause everything... but alas... the only 2 situations I've found are:

  1. Layers are YES to allow seeking... in this case the seekbar (and pause button) control only the most recently activated layer.
  2. Layers are NO to allow seeking... in this case the seekbar (and pause button) control only the base layer.

I have yet to find the magic bullet that pauses everything everywhere...

...and i'm beginning to wonder if that bullet exists! :)
