Changing defaults after recording

Post by bnortin » Fri Apr 16, 2010 9:40 pm

I've noticed that if you record looks or cues and then change the default settings on priorities or MIB time it doesn't seem to change what's already recorded. The first time I was recording exclusive looks, and after I had 4 or 5 recorded I changed the priority so they would override the GM. Any new exclusive looks worked correctly, but the ones recorded before the priority change did not.

Just recently we recorded a bunch of cues with the default MIB time, and after a few rehearsals we realized this wasn't fast enough. We changed the default in console settings, but it had no effect on what was already recorded.

I can understand why this works this way, but it would be nice to have the option to apply the new setting to previously recorded looks & cues that use the default setting.

As designed. You can change a range of cues in one command line with [Cue] [X] [Thru] [y] [S7-MIB Time] [0] [Enter].
