Tracking Mode/Move on Dark

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just looking at the FLX as a possible upgrade to my Jester ML48 for my dance shows and so am in the process of looking at all the functions.

I would enjoy not having to program black out cues to reset my movers before each piece, so 'Move on Dark' would be great. I, however, have to program most of my dance shows out of sequence. I number each dance 10, 20, 30 etc. then program the relevant blocks of cues in the rehearsal order. It then obviously all runs in sequence with the running order of the show.

If I do this will the tracking, 'move on darks', work correctly?

 

Cheers,

 

John

Hi John,

 

I think a similar scenario came up recently with move-on-dark look-ahead with jump cues.

 

Take a look at this topic: http://zero88.com/forum/topic/7386-move-in-dark-problems-when-jumping-cues/#entry28970

 

If it looks the same scenario as your needs then there is an enhancement request now in place: http://zero88.com/forum/topic/7386-move-in-dark-problems-when-jumping-cues/#entry29000

 

HTH.

 

Regards,

Kevin

Thanks Kevin,

 

Sounds like he is jumping to cues at the end of his stack and then jumping back. I am in effect leaving gaps in my stack which I fill as each dance comes up in rehearsal, so was hoping that the move-on-dark process would just see the inserted block of cues and act on them?

Yes, you're correct - as long as you go in numerical order, tracking and move on dark (which are two different things, independant of each other for the most part) will work. Any "missing" cues will just be ignored
