10.6.2 Recording & Updating Issues

Post by bnortin » Tue Apr 06, 2010 1:50 am

I've noticed 2 issues while recording & updating cues for a show we've been rehearsing this week.

First, exclusive looks that are active are getting recorded into cues even though the command line says "Record Live -Subs". This also causes problems when we try to fix the cues in blind. In blind, if you select the channels in the exclusive look and knock them out, they come back as soon as you hit update.

Second, we have a second cue list that has 2 cues running in a loop. Anytime we update the first cue list the second one just stops on whatever cue it is currently sitting in.

Show file is attached, thanks.

The exclusive sub thing is indeed nasty. We're looking at that right now for 10.7.2.
Although I can knock it out in Blind and it does go away.
The Update of a running cue asserting (and halting) the updated cue is behaviour as designed. You may argue that it was not designed well and I might agree with you. It is what it is for now.

Thanks for the info on the exclusive subs. As far as the update problem, the issue we had wasn't that it was asserting & halting the updated cue, we were updating an active cue on the A/B cue list and it was stopping the auto follows on the C/D cue list. All the C/D cue list does is run our hazers for a while and then turn them off for a while in an endless loop. Is there a quick fix for this such as changing the priority of the cue list that may stop this from happening, or should I just put a cue list chase on a sub?
