Like a 3d cgi app, can you consider creating references of arrangements to containers in the current arrangement? As it's all data anyway, and the racks are all using the same audio, should be straightforward?

You mean a container that references an external arrangement file?

Indeed. Clearly, the rack for the external file will also need to be loaded in the background.

So the idea is to chain multiple arrangements for, like, scenes in a film score?

If so, the workflow for that is to give each arrangement its SMPTE offset (cue point in the film), so you can sync and compose it alongside the pictures. The final production step is to mix each part in a DAW.

Synfire doesn't have a SMPTE timeline. It's not possible to place arrangements by time (only by bars/beats). Since different scenes would also have different tempos, keeping the pieces in order would be extremely difficult. That's why each scene is in its own arrangement.

Agreed.
