Chases

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

If I want to create a chase in the middle of my cue stack, do I create the chase in another playback and then somehow copy it into my main cue stack, or do I create it within the cue stack I want it in?

Hi Rob,

 

You create the chase on a separate playback, and then use a "macro" to trigger and release it during your cues.

 

On the cue you want to trigger the chase, go to the "Cue Settings" cell and press Enter. Now choose "Macros", choose "Add" next to trigger, and select the chase. Click OK on both windows.

 

On the cue you want to release the chase (it might be the next cue, or several cues later), do exactly the same, but choose "Add" next to release instead, and select the same chase.

Eek that sounds confusing! I'll give it a whirl! Wish me luck!

What I've described above is exactly the same as physically pushing the other fader up over the fade up time, and then brining it back down over the fade down time. So as long as the main cues run when you do that, they will when you add the chase in as described above.

 

(The reason I'm not definitely saying yes, is there are all sorts of options you could select that will make all sorts of strange things happen!)

I've tried this and the chase works but isn't triggered by the macro in the main cue stack.

Hi SimonH,

 

Can you email me the showfile and I'll take a look and get it working for you.

Hi Jon

 

I have created a simple chase as per the instuctions and put the trigger and release on cues in the main stack.

 

The chase works when triggered on playback 1 but not when running the main cue stack.

 

File attached.
