Control feeds, like Nasdaq, for example.

Control Field Identifier

Control Geom

Remember to set up search provider towards GH for using this. Deny upward browsing seems to be broken for geoms.

Control Hide in range

Control Hide on Empty

Often used to hide a group when a text field or other is left empty.

Control Image

Control Keyframe

Control List

Works as a regular table but is missing the functionality of moving lines up and down.

Control Material

Control NDI

Control Number

Control Object

Control object is normally added automatically to a scene when you add another control plugin. It is in this plugin you mark if a scene is part of a transition logic set or not. There should normally only be one control object in the scene. The exception is when you use control list when there is a control object for every line. The functionally of writing controlfields directly in the control object is currently not supported.

Control OMO

This controls an Integer from 0 to 5 etc. It is typically nice to use a dropdown for these with proper field names.

Control Parameter

Control Payload

Control Pie

Control Sign Container

Control Soft clip

Control Stoppoint

Control Classic Text

In general control text is supported. But the full workflow for rich text may not be supported.

Control VBI

Control Video

Control Field Renamer
