Setting blending strategy

Blending strategy determines how the blended group will be composed. Click Blending: random to set the blending strategy and choose from the following:

  • Random: items from each group will be blended randomly.
  • Interleaved: sequential: items from each group will be interleaved in order of group. For example, given groups A,B,C the first result will be A1,B1,C1. Second will be A2,B2,C2 and so forth.
  • Interleaved: random: items from each group will be interleaved in random group order. For example, given groups A,B,C the first result might be A1,C1,B1. Second might be B2,A2,C2 and so forth.
  • Grouped: sequential: each groups items will be allocated in order of group. For example, given groups A,B,C the result will be A1..An,B1..Bn,C1..Cn.
  • Grouped: random: each groups items will be allocated in random group order. For example, given groups A,B,C the result might be A1..An,C1..Cn,B1..Bn.
