After recording a cue you may need to make changes to it, and update it. The most effective way to do this, is firstly go into the cue you wish to change and update. The easiest way to do this, is view the playback your cue is stored in, by pressing and holding View and tapping your playback's button. Then tap your cue on screen, and press the playback's go button to go into it, the cue will highlight in green, meaning it is the current cue. Ensure your playback's fader is raised.
Your cue will then be outputting, and you can then make the changes required using the fixture controls. When your have made the changes required, and your lighting state on stage now looks how you need it, tap Update, and then tap the button of the playback which is currently outputting. The current cue of that playback is then updated, and you will notice the Clear button LED automatically turns off, as the console has saved all your manual changes into the cue.
Fade times can also be updated whilst updating the cue, as after pressing Update your encoders will allow you to adjust the fades of the cue, in the same way you can when recording a new cue.
By default, cue only is enabled, meaning any changes you make to a cue, will then be reverted in the next cue, ensuring only the cue you are working on is affected, and the following cues look however you programmed them. You can however update a cue with tracking enabled, as a method of sending your changes into several cues.
FLX users can choose any of the following syntax to update a cue:
This will update the current cue within the playback you are currently viewing.
Update 5 Enter
Update, 5, Enter,
This will update Cue 5 within the playback you are currently viewing.
Update Playback button 10
Update, Stack 10,
This will update the current cue within Playback 10
Update 5 Playback button 10
Update, 5 Stack 10,
This will update Cue 5 within Playback 10
Updating multiple cues
As well as updating the current cue, or a single cue you define, multiple cues can be updated at once. After you have created the required lighting state on stage, you can then define which cues you wish to be updated to your current lighting state. To do this, you will need to be in Cue Only, so that only the cues you define get updated.
Update 2 Thru 5 Enter
Update, 2 Thru 5, Enter,
Updates cues 2 thru to 5 with your current lighting state. Cues 3 to 5 are tracking from cue 2.
Update 3 And 5 Enter
Update, 3 And 5, Enter,
Updates cues 3 and 5 with your current lighting state.
Tip - to update a cue within a chase, or a cue that has an auto-cue after it, press and hold Shift, and tap your playback's go button, to go into the cue you wish to update. The following cue will then not automatically play, allowing you to update the cue you need.
