10.8.2 New [TIME][TIME]

Post by gooze » Wed Dec 01, 2010 7:28 am

Repeated presses of [TIME] gives unlikely command line after a few presses.

"Cue 107 Lens Time Down Position Time"

What does that do ? :?

New feature, as designed.
Pressing Time then # gives cue time
Pressing Time x2 allows you to enter down time
Pressing Time x3 allows you to enter position time
you can press # at any point, so in one command line, you can enter cue time, down time, position time and lens time (skipping colour and gobo time)

(not sure why you saw lens early in your command example above??)

First six or seven presses look as if it were designed that way. If you keep pressing TIME it starts to get strange results.
Should start over with cuetime, downtime, etc. after a while

... IMO Should not allow the keypress after a while

Maybe better to cycle through.

Agreed; cycle through would be better.
