I'm one of those 300/500-residents..RobertBell wrote:I suggest the people that don't like our S10-Effects package write effects exactly as they did in 500 land. That is:
Use another cue list and macro into and out of it.
You many not of thought that is what you were doing with the 500, but you were.
So I'm running a chase from another cuelist by macroing into it. When I'm macroing out of it, it works, but only in a snap-mode. How do I fade out the effect in the same time as the cuetime? It's rather ugly to have an effect snap off while the rest of the rig is going in 10 sec..
And what if I want to have this chase running over a couple of units at 0%, then the next cue the same channels come up to 50%, BUT THE EFFECT IS STILL RUNNING AT FL? When the chase hits the channels at 50% it takes them up to FL, but then takes them all the way down to 0! I guess because the cuelist with the chase is telling them to go to 0, but that is not what I want.. Do I really need to make a whole new effect-cuelist en macro out of the first and at the same time macro into the next? And starts this effect then again at the first unit, instead of going on where the last chase left off?
Back in my old 500-land the effect would have no influence on the level the channels were set by any cue, so the first at 0,then the next cue the effect would go on, while the rig would come up to 50% and stayed on 50% during the effect..
The tip to make a different cuelist as an effect works, but only roughly.. I'm looking forward to any suggestions to make it more smooth..
