To the credit of the software, I spend so much time actually playing, I must confess I very rarely get into the details of the application. Most of its transparent enought anyways.
Yet the Style picker winodw categories sectino has a puzzle in it for me. At the top you get the number of all styles found, then 'other styles' of which apparently I have thirty (I have never made a style), then recent styles and favotite styles - obvious enough I suppose...

This category widnow is not explained in the manual as far as I can tell?

The next section seems to be music by genre - rock techno etc. Again clear enough I think.

The next section is slightly puzzling to me

You have Real styles, then you have so called classic real styles, multistyles, utility/misc styles with real drums, waltzes, then some time signatures.

I have no idea what a 'classic' style is - I suppose its a popular style used in pre-made songs??

multistyle: is this a style with both real tracks and MIDI?

But the thing that is most puzzling is the next part which lists RT1222 -RT136

Why only these? Why are not the other real tracks listed in this numbering section

I don't understand this, could (kindly) someone explain please

This is simply a continuation of past practice, to 'highlight' the newest RealTracks at the bottom.

Multistyle = A Style that features more than two Substyles such that instead of just Substyle A and B you might have A, B, C, D, etc. depending upon how many substyles have been written into the style.

You really should learn how to search the FAQ pages for the keywords to answer questions like these. Ctrl-F is how you do it.

I am glad Zero asked this question.

The Stylepicker categories list is very confusing to a newcomer. It should be more intuitive and we shouldn't have to go looking into FAQ's to understand it.

BTW do you know that there is a mistake in the latest Stylepicker window and the styles in the RT122-RT136 categories have been left out of the "All Styles" list.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
