It is about real and true things happening, like facts for example.
First cond = ‘if+present’ – ‘will’.

English grammar lesson about verbs;
What is a verb?
A verb expresses action. It means action from a subject, or to a subject.
There are two types of verbs, active and passive.
Active means that we do the action to somebody else. For example; ‘I gave him a book’. Or we are doing the action ourselves. For example; ‘I am holding a book’
Passive means somebody else is doing the action to us. For example; ‘He gave me a book’.
Future continuous tense;
The future continuous tense, has two parts; one is to use ‘will be doing’, and the other is to use ‘be going to be doing’.
‘You will be eating’, or ‘you are going to be eating’.
If you want to sound natural in English, you have to use this tense, when speaking.
You can use this tense in a positive or a negative way.
For example, in a positive way is; ‘You will be eating’. In a negative way is; ‘You will not be eating’.

The Future Perfect Continuous Tense!
Two future actions – one is continuous. To speculate. To predict.
The future perfect continuous tense indicates an action, which will happen some time in the future, but which will start, at a particular time in the future and will continue, until some time in the future.
The important point about the future perfect continuous is that is has a time reference, which is the time when the action will start in the future, or the time when the action will stop in the future. If there is no starting or stopping time in the future, then it will be only a future continuous tense, to show an ongoing action in the future.
The future perfect continuous is about a longer action in the future, which is interrupted, by another action in the future.
Topic + WILL HAVE BEEN + Verb
‘By the end of the next year, she will have been living in Germany for 15 years.’
The ‘end of the next year’, is the interrupting action, which stops the future perfect continuous action ‘she will have been living in Germany for 15 years.’
There is duration of an action in the future, for some time, before it is completed or stopped.
