Automation of casting matrices|
That's only really important if you're doing a standing-up, acting-it-out readthrough. If it's just a casual, sitting around, heads-in-copies event, then it's less of a problem if one person plays two different characters in the same scene who don't talk to each other. Plus if there's not quite enough participants, then some doubling within scenes might be necessary. atreic
's scenario seems to be casual readthroughs that are organised in a rush. If it's organised properly, the person doing the casting should really have read the script carefully and know what's going on all the time, instead of relying on a computer.
Another issue is avoiding lightning-fast costume changes (remember gnimmel
playing Lady Macbeth and a murderer!). Though again, that should only be an issue for more serious readthroughs.
