Hello,

Still familiarizing myself with BI5 but one thing i'm noticing is that my time line has a lot of gaps, for upwards of 3 hours. During this time, there are no recordings. Really odd to me and i have read up on the combine or cut feature and i'm fine with how it's suppose to work...but i would expect that after a combine/cut, the next new video would start right away. In certain instances there are hour long gaps until the next video begins...

However, as i'm writing this i think i know why and would now just like confirmation. I do not have continuous recording so what i'm assuming is that the gaps come from combine or cut on the current video , then the next video won't start/be created until there is an actual alert. This makes sense to me. Ironically, i'm just thinking of this now as i type this up.

So i think i answered my own question :lmao:, but a confirmation would be nice.
Eventually i'll switch to continuous recording once i'm done setting up all my cameras and reading through the BI help docs.
