Force dark

An extra option for automove while dark could be a "force dark" function.
If a moving light is at a level in two consecutive cues in different positions, force dark could fade the light down, move it and fade it up again. The fade up and down times can be entered in a percentage of the cue time, so:

[CUE][3][TIME][[3][0]{force dark}[1][0][/][5][0][ENTER]

this will result in a fade from cue 2 to cue 3 in 30 seconds, with the moving lights fading down in 3 seconds, moving while dark in 12 seconds and fading back up in 15 seconds.
