If the vintrace’s Sparkling module is enabled, you can use vintrace to calculate tirage bin times for multiple bins. This eliminates the need to manually enter the fill time for each bin.
There are two options for calculating the bin’s fill time:
- Calculate Total Duration — The start fill time of each bin is calculated based on the duration between the start and end time.
- Calculate Minutes Per Bin — The start fill time of each bin is calculated based on the start time and number of minutes for each bin.
