Sorry me again,

2 questions: -

Say the position I used for the movers for the spotlight needed changing (I didn't use a palate, silly me), could I just change it in the first 1 of the 3 repeats and that new position would track forward to the other 2 cues they are used? Or should I record a position palate, then output each cue individually, move the lights to the position palate then update? Would I need to change anything on the update screen to just update the position, like turn off smart tag ir update cue only?

2. If I now wanted to insert a cue (with tracking enabled) would the lighting I changed in the new inserted que move forward into the next cue of is that when I need to hold down record and press cue only or dont track forward?

Thanks again.

When you copy a cue, the pasted copy does not reference the original - it is an entirely new cue. Therefore you will have to update the positions manually if you didn’t use a palette. To do this, create your position, and then store as a palette. Then go into each cue, select the fixtures, apply the palette, and then press UPDATE, and then the playback button to store the edit. If the position requires to stay the same in the next cue, do this as a tracking update.

If you insert a track forwards cue, any new information will track through until the next cue the lights are given new instructions. Therefore if you wish to insert a cue and not affect any subsequent cues, make sure you insert cue only. 

Hope this helps,

So I guess I leave smart tag on when pressing update so only the position is tagged and gets updated and tracks forward so the following cue will keep its original intensity of 0 then the cue after that where the intensity is back at 100 again will have the new updated position automatically as it has tracked forward?

Spot on!

Well I had to update the position fir each set of repeats as I guessing it didn't track forwards as the original position was classed as new data for the position, but creating the palette, outputting each cue, selecting the lights, tapping the position palate and pressing update with smart tag enabled did the trick.

All three showings of the panto went well. Thanks for your help both of you. Next show is our annual whole school production which unfortunately comes before the training course next year but I'm sure we'll get by.

Thanks for your help again, have a merry christmas!

It was only a 30 minute show, run 3 times on the bounce for our students! Only 27 lighting cues and 10 sound, so nothing too complex really, its was just using movers in that way for the first time that was causing me issues!
