You can do this on a per layer level. How many Layers do you have? Some of my installs have 12-18 layers, so it takes a min to go through and trigger first clip on comp load, but it works like a charm.
How are you doing the auto triggering? I am not using any show control for this install. I've been using AutoHotKey so far which does work. Would be great to have task scheduled OSC or MIDI commands. How about a Resolume StartUp Batch file that self triggers commands?
